THANK YOU to all who were able to attend the Outing yesterday. What an incredible day! Both the weather and the company were amazing! It was great to see so many Roadrunner families in one place. I hope the kids had fun with the events - the walk out with the opposing team, the bubble soccer and the Meet & Greet after the game. Jay Adelberg with the Chicago Red Stars put all those events together - he truly helped make the Outing an amazing event.
I intended on announcing the winner of the September 6, 2015 Redstars game at Toyota Park drawing before the game but ran out of time. The winning family:
MOLLY SVOBODA and Family!!
I also wanted to give a special thank you to the following people:
Mark Roper - for the idea, for reaching out to Jay at the Chicago Red Stars to put it all together and for generally making most of this happen;
Haun Porter - for bringing his grill and cooking all the dogs;
Lisa Forst - for so much of the behind the scenes;
Keith/Kate Pounds - for providing the raffle tickets for the bubble soccer drawing;
Marnee and Dave Fieldman - for storing containers/food in their car and waiting to return to parents after the game ( so anyone who was not able to pick up their food container before/after the game, please email me and I will know where to find it);
Holly Bull and Jennifer Stephens - for taking pictures (and anyone else who took pictures to share with the Club) ;
All those who helped clean up before going into the game.
And a big thanks to all the generous families that donated school supplies for DG58. (If you missed and still want to donate you can still do so until Wed at noon, contact Roadrunners.soccer@gmail)
For anyone I may have missed, please know that all you did to help make the day a success was truly appreciated!
I am humbled to be part of such a great organization. See you all soon!
