Motion – Be it resolved that the WWAC pay the costs of a bus that would travel to Winkler on February 28 to fulfill the MHSAA requirement. Nick/Stuart (passed unanimously) Recommendation that any necessary adjustments to school fees be made to cover the cost of one bus for volleyball and one bus for basketball to travel to Winkler.
