Joint Soccer Tournament

By Nestor Godinez, P.E.

The Annual Joint YMFs Soccer Tournament was held on April 1st in Santa Ana Barbara.  Traditionally the tournament host YMF is rotated between Orange County (OC), Los Angeles (LA), and San Bernardino/Riverside (SB/R) including teams of working professionals and university students.  In an effort to get more of the other LA Section YMFs to participate, the host YMF was Santa Barbara/Ventura (SB/V).  This year did not see a full tournament materialize due to the distance of travel.  The event turned out to be a Joint YMFs soccer day in the park that saw Santa Barbara/Ventura YMF versus players from OC, LA, SB/R, and San Luis Obispo.  There were no complaints as the venue field was within yards of the beach and it was a beautiful sunny day.  After hours of playing, the participants went on to enjoy the good food and drink of Santa Barbara.
