The Tacoma Adult Soccer League has its 2011 champs and you’ll recognize several players from Vashon! Congrats to Mid-Sound Boomers players including David Leonhardt, Mark Scheer, Sean Harrison, Sjardo Steneker, Skip Tavakkolian, Don Amick, Tom Hennessey,David O’Neill, Lorin Reinelt, and Greg Martin.
This update is shamelessly lifted from Skip’s Facebook profile. Thank you!
The last part of October, a few Islanders headed off to Costa Rica in search of a cure for the chilly, ever-shortening days fall brought upon us. Greg Martin was one of those guys. Along with his oldest son, Caz, he very quietly also brought a load of soccer balls to donate to the local soccer clubs of Jaco, Puntarenas (on the Central Pacific coast). Surf Inn proprietress Christina Truit of Playa Hermosa, who works with the local chamber of commerce, distributed them on behalf of Greg and Vashon Soccer. To hear Christine explain it, Costa Rican soccer (futbol) players are extremely talented and sorely under-equipped and even less funded. To receive such a gift is highly coveted and deeply appreciated. Way to go, Greg!
