REPORT FINDINGS Our audit of Whitaker Fields produced mixed results. Each area of the audit has some risks that need to be taken care of, but also some positives as well. In this section of the report we will present our findings from each section of the audit.

It is important to alert people to this hazard so that the facility can stay out of trouble if a car is hit. We found several positives in this section of the audit. The hours of operation at

Whitaker Fields are more than fair for anyone who wants to use the facility. Participants should almost always be able to find a time to use the facility and all of its amenities. Another positive refers to the size and accessibility of the facility. The facility is not hard to find, and the layout is
