LA Times: Powerful storm to bring another day of rain to Southern California

July 20th 2015

An unseasonably powerful storm that closed Los Angeles County beaches because of lightning and washed out a vital bridge connecting shipping between California and Arizona will bring more rain Monday to Southern California.

“It still looks like there’s a chance of rain pretty much everywhere,” said Stuart Seto with the National Weather Service. “Yesterday was probably the worst.” view news article.

=======     Saturday, July 18, 2015   Today is the start of the single elimination process ... not without some administrative issues that we need to notify all of you participating in the 18u / Gold Champions Cup 2015.  First and Foremost, we thank you for your support and appreciate all the things you do for your team and each other for the love of the sport.

Some items of note:

 

Game 12, Saturday 8am Alton 3 will not be played.    Cal Thunder had issues with our tournament and determined that they would not participate this morning and WA Illusion-Mendez was awarded the win by forfeit 7-0 and advanced to play in the next game.

 

Game 40, Saturday NaWahine vs SC Rebels, the winner will play in Game 56 against Firecracker-Young (due to traveling conflicts to ASA Nationals FC-Young will not play this game) SoCal Strikkers (the fill-in team from Pool M who DNA do not advance will fill-in the spot) and play against the winner of Game 40 and that winner will advance to the next game as normal). We had some controversies regarding the "computer" making the seeding decisions because of our TieBreaking Rules and it went exactly as written, score .. all three tied, head to head, each team beat the other with no clear winner, Runs Against 2 teams were tied as the winner and eliminated the third winner, then it went to the Runs For and one became the winner... I am sure there will be lots of fun discussions over this and again welcome your feedback ...

 

Game 31, Courage advised us upon checkin that they were leaving Saturday morning and traveling to ASA nationals.  We were able to get the Cal A's organization to come to the rescue.  As a result of that Cal A’s Iseri will be playing in Courage’s spot Game 31… however, no matter the score, the team who is playing Cal A’s will advance regardless if they win or lose as a forfeit.  

 

We hope you enjoyed and are enjoying the tournament and please support your snack bar folks Corona Angels-Marty at Harvard and Lower Peters and American Pastime-Farnworth at Bill Barber and Mark Daily/Alton.  Please also thank your Site Directors who are here because they love the sport.  As always we welcome comments to improve and willl continue to try making this tournament your tournament of choice.  Feedback is welcome regarding the two NFCA camps we introduced July 13 and July 14 (Monday and Tuesda) and ..... how about tthe Chic-Fil-A... yummy or what ... Susan and Jim Bollinger - Tournament Directors =========
