UPDATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON:
Tournament is on as planned! All fields and parking at the Weston Fields. Check the website for addresses, checkin, etc.
Please try and carpool as the parking area is smaller than usual.
Please try and avoid really low-slung vehicles.
Please be aware of the wetter than normal conditions.
Thank you all for your patience,
GMC Tournament Director
Update Thurs evening:
We continue to evaluate our field conditions as it continues to rain. We have some concerns about our U-10 fields and there is some possibility that these fields will be re-located at a local school grounds. Otherwise we think the U-12, U-14 and U-16 fields will support play.
We will let you know and post any directions on Friday afternoon.
Of greater concern is our parking area which essentially rings our fields but are backed by a river all around. As of now we think we can support our parking needs but we need your help in carpooling and using vehicles that have 4 wheel drive when possible. You might also consider that there will be wet ground so your Wellies and tarp in a tent or on the ground might be prudent.
If we cannot safely park everyone, then there is the possibility of shuttling to the Magic Mountain Ski Resort parking lots provided by Stratton Mountain Resort buses. Again we will keep you posted.
The weekend looks like great weather so we anticipate some great Soccer.
We thank Stratton Mountain Resort for their generosity of strategy, personal, equipment and support – without them we probably would have cancelled this tournament. We also thank Magic Mountain Ski Resort for stepping up with the use of their parking facilities at such late notice.
Please stay tuned on our site for updates.
This is a head’s up.
Schedules are posted. Please go to the pull-down menu.
Due to the number of requests for afternoon starts on Saturday, we will not be able to honor any requests. Please be prepared to be scheduled and play at 8am both days. This is only fair (or unfair) equally to all teams. Please do not call with this request since we have had close to 50 of these requests so far….
Please be advised that the tournament is full except for the U-11-12 age groups. If you wish to be on a waiting list please contact us!
