    I love that you are putting this out there and making it totally public. I’d love to hear more about how much you budget for fundraising, and then how you much you bring in via fundraising. Have to spend money to raise money… sad, but so often, true!

    IU has to be one of the most expensive MCLA programs out there. And you guys are only traveling to IL this year? Is there a SB trip in there? Flying anywhere? I know teams that pay a grand or more less and get all this stuff. Since this is a student run club, who makes the budget? I hope the students…and I hope your record improves with all this money coming in and you going to those “coaching conventions.”
