when you utilize fields that don't have public bathrooms like the school's fields where do all the players and parents go to the bathroom? I never see port-a-potty's around just wondering

I have one daughter at ENMS and another at the hs. Last week the field hockey field was manucured like a golf course the day before Cow Harbor. The field(s) hardleyHS ever get done and into eh 2 years she has been there never that well. I noticed all the fields at ENMS were as good as I have ever seen them. I drove my oldest daughter to HS this morning and I noticed that tents and porta-pottys were still up at the HS. There was some (not a lot) garbage around the fields and parking lots. Who pays to clean this up and how come the grass gets done just in time for the soccer kids? Not sour grapes just wondering how come our kids play in cow pastures most of the season. Anyone agree? Not trying to make a problem for Cow Harbor just curious how certain things get done for certain people.

The soccer club pays for porta-potties at all of the locations. I saw them at all of the fields I passed by or attended a game.

The parent volunteers are in charge of cleaning up the fields after the tournament, and the soccer club arranges for the break down of the tents and pick up of the porta potties. I think you have a great point regarding the condition of the fields, and hopefully the fields weren't damaged as a result of this tournament. But I believe the district has just this year invested some money in improvements to the fields, so I think the timing is a coincidence and not related to the soccer tournament.
