It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.



The Wallbreakers' baseball field in Dortmunderstrasse in Leipzig is just 5 km NNE of the center of Leipzig and most all of the university institutes. It can be reached quickly by tram, and a stop on the adjacent commuter train line can be built as soon as the need arises. But the construction of the clubhouse and dormitory can begin as soon as the financing for about 500,000 Euros is secured. And, as the Saxon Improvement Bank SAB backs such projects if our club has just a reasonable percentage of the funds needed for the project, a relatively small donation now can go a long way in securing a dorm room in a few years for your son or daughter and saving a good part of the costs of college education.

Besides the hardball and softball fields, there is plenty of space on the grounds to build a club house with upper floors for dormitory rooms, which will, of course, be reserved for university students of any course of studywho play on our teams. Besides the courses of study at the university, leipzig has a HTWK technical college just 2 km further south.

For Winter practice we also want to outfit the softball field with an airdome, so we can keep fit all year round. This will all cost money - roughly a million Euros. When we have passed these milestones, we see the chance of promoting baseball in Europe by sponsoring youth seminars that offer a combination of language and baseball training: bringing school students together from all over the world for English, German, French or Spanish and always baseball training. There is space for a hundred pupils to each put up a tent in the summer! This will make Summer jobs for our students in the organisation of these seminars.
For larger contributions for the dormitory project a least agreement can be arranged that would allow the contributor a return on the investment. For assessment purposes we know that building costs for dwelling space currently amount to about 3000 Euros/square meter of room space, so a student room of 20 mē would cost about 60,000 Euros, while a student's budget would allow about 250 Euros/month rent bringing a return of 2.5 % on the gross investment. But since SAB financing is possible for about 70 % of the total investment at about 1 % interest an initial contribution of 18,000 Euros would bring the full annual return of 1500 Euros less the initial interest of 420 Euros for the financing leaving 1080 Euros per annum for an investment of only 18,000 Euros, i.e. effectively 6 %.
