this is the key though. so many aren't willing to help.  they're happier grumbling from behind a keyboard instead of trying to raise money, or even pick up someone from the airport. 

A divided alumni is not going to do Jack. The Alumni needs to be brought back together. I believe there was a seat on the board for an Alum. I know there was! Then there has to be specific things laid out for the Alums to work as a unit.   I know logistically it wont happen, But bring the Scouts home to Madison, Wisconsin. Get the community back behind them. Build your contributors locally. Or start saying the truth and be from Indiana and go after local there. Set some roots.
