State Soccer Challenge Chairman 
2020.09.05 Update:
As chairman I am going to bend the rules a little. Normally we require the participants to compete in council and District soccer challenges and the winners then advance to the state challenge. Because of COVID-19 and the fact we have had less than 20 participants in recent years, we will not turn anyone away from the State Challenge. All who travel all the way to Tooele will be allowed to participate. We hope to get a nice turn out. We have 4 weeks until the State Challenge so let your people know we are welcoming everyone and the Council in Tooele will be cooking burgers and dogs for participants and observers so let’s all have a great day. 

Sunday October 4th. registration at 1 PM and competition to start between 1:30 and 2 PM. See you all there.

2020.08.26 Announcement: 
Good evening brothers,

Schools are opening, the summer will end soon and that means one thing. The State soccer challenge. As of right now we are a go. Mark your calendars for Sunday October 4th. This year’s challenge is hosted by the good Knights at St. Marguerite in Tooele. They will be cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for participants and spectators. Free of charge. We will have registration at 1 PM and the challenge will start at 1:30. We have the gym reserved in case of bad weather but that depends on the Bishop allowing an indoor activity. If all goes well we will be outside and observe social distancing. Please get your council and district challenges up and running and I hope to see many of you on October 4th.

James “MAC” McManaman
