The time has come to seek donations again. The plan was to make this a quarterly thing, but we ended up only doing this twice last year. Only asking for $10 from everyone that can spare it.
Due to a strong response and fewer permitting requirements over the winter (and generally lower numbers) we were able to stretch the funds through most of this summer. We don’t make dues a requirement because we want DC Touch to be accessible to everyone. Over the last couple years we have been using the Wallenberg field consistently on Saturdays, and for this there is a fee. In addition to helping the National Park Service maintain the condition of the field, obtaining permits ensures that we have a regular space to play, as it is highly coveted by football, soccer, and many other sport clubs.
Whether you play touch 3 times a week, once a month, or once every six months, you’re always welcome regardless of if you donate. But if you play regularly (or just like what we do) think about donating. We are a social group with no huge expenses or overhead like other sports groups. We just need a small amount from everyone who is able. Your money is going straight to permitting, some replacement cones, and a new ball once in a while.
Thanks everyone for making this such an amazing group and I’ll see you on the field.
