STOP THE TURF
An effort by residents to prevent the replacement of Woodstock High School's natural turf playing field with an artificial one.
An organization called WHS Home Turf Campaign or WHS Renaissance has sought pledges to replace the playing field at Woodstock High School (South street campus) with an artificial one. WHS Athletic Director Glen Wilson does deserve a great deal of credit for leading the charge to collect pledges to subsidize the first phase and those that have pledged should be applauded as well. Pledges in the amount of $800,000 or more have been collected thus far, mostly from a handful of donors.
We encourage you to visit their site (linked above) to fully understand their position, in their own words.

Given the known and unknown hazards of crumb ruber and the known expense of the turf field, we suggest that the plan be shelved and that the organization consider approaching the donors for permission to use the funds for academic benefit.
