Some historical background on issues that we have gone over:
  -Scholarships: Political issues usually make this more of an issue than it's worth.
  -Gate fee: School pays for ice and venue, they would need to collect. 
    To many risk items for FoBH to be involved, like not collecting from all attendees, etc.
  -Order warmups so they are ready for first practice, no names printed like years past.
  -Open apprael sales and close so you can guarautee Christmas delivery.
     In years past FOBH used two vendors, we moved to Marty's Vendor 2017
  -Re-open apparel sales after tryouts for small timeframe for those making team.
