With the opening ceremonies only days away, it seems almost assured that this tournament will be an event to remember for a long time. This tournament promises to be bigger, better, and more exciting than any previous soccer event in Saskatchewan.
A couple quick notes:
-As you can probably tell, a few minor adjustments have been made to the blog to make it look a little better.
-You'll be able to check in with us every game day to see a recap of the previous day's events. Since I won't see every single game, please feel free to e-mail email@example.com with a recap of a game that is missed on this site. Also, any women players are welcome to help out with the women's side if they want to write quick game recaps.
-Tell your friends to come out and support a team. Give this tournament as much exposure as you can. Let's pack that place.
-The polls will be modified after the tournament starts.
-If your team doesn't have a website, make one, then send me the link. It takes very little time but gives your team much more exposure. It lets people know who everyone is and adds a little celebrity status for the players. It is very much worth the effort.
-We all owe Kevin Holness and company much appreciation for all he's done to put this tournament together once again. They put in a lot of time and effort into making this thing run smoothly. They've done an outstanding job so far, and this tournament is only getting better and better.
A message from CBC:
We would like to get things started by having players call us and leave a message for us to play on the radio.
Call 1-800-661-7540, and under the morning edition, say - what team you play for in the WCP Cup and why you're going to win. Thanks.
