Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Manitou Springs School District should change the game field to turf because the conditions of the field cause more injuries.

The conditions of the game field are not ideal. The Bumpy and rigid field causes holes and divots throughout the field. These can cause serious injuries such as breaks and or sprains. The holes can also cause flooding and mud when it rains. If the field became turf it would be easier to maintain, less injuries because of the flat ground, and would lead to a better game environment.

Some people might argue that it is too expensive to change the field into turf. Yes, the initial part of putting in the turf and paying for it would be very expensive but would save the school a lot of money in the long run because the school wouldn’t have to water the field as much. Due to the location of Manitou water conservation is a must and putting in a turf field will save an extreme amount of water. In order to get the money for the turf field the school could ask local businesses and or make a go fund me for people to donate to in order to get the turf field.

Therefore the game field should become turf to stop injuries, easier to take care of, and create a better game environment.
