Make up Photos at Scott MacAskil’s House


Scott MacAskil has received photos ordered from Make-up Picture day Nov. 6.

You can pick them up at his house: 132 Haight Ave, big yellow house at cross of Lincoln and Haight (with camper in driveway). They will be in plastic bins on my porch in order of age groups.

There will also be a clip board with a list. Please cross off your team once you have picked up your team’s photo package.

Please distribute photos to your families asap.

Families should have received an email from Shooting Stars that shows the photos of their player. If they wish to order additional photo products they can do so from there.

If there are any problems or missing items please let me know.

Enjoy your photos!!

World Baseball Tournament Needs Volunteers

This post is not directly related to soccer (it involves that sport with the sticks) but it’s for a good cause and bringing kids from around the world together which is always a good thing.

Next August (8/5/17 to 8/12/17) Alameda will host the World Baseball Tournament, featuring 14 and 15 year old teams from around the world. This tournament had its beginning in 1973. Since then it has become common practice for the host country to home-stay the international players. This year the tournament will feature teams from Australia, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, and Singapore playing against teams from San Diego, Hawaii, Fresno and, of course, Alameda.

In addition to player home-stay, we are responsible for running the tournament and providing transportation, hosting an A’s game, providing the necessary fields, umpires, field preparation, scorekeepers, announcers, opening and closing ceremonies, running the snack bar, and hosting a welcome party for all players and families involved. In addition to home-stay parents, we are looking for corporate and individual sponsors whose financial contributions and donations will be recognized through advertising during the course of the tournament. All donations are tax-deductible.

If you are interested in learning more about the tournament you can contact Ken Cala, the President of the Board, at (510) 917-8280 or kenc@lowerythomas.com, Randy Marmor, Vice-President, at (510) 418-7451 or randy4sports@hotmail.com, or Bill Dal Porto, International Relations, at (510) 521-5564 or dalportobill@gmail.com.

ASC Volunteer Opportunities – Open Board Positions

ASC Families:

The Alameda Soccer Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization. An elected Board of Directors runs ASC. Each Director is a volunteer, participating in the management of the club and its programs. Simply put, our Club exists through the involvement of a dedicated group of volunteers.

There are currently a number of open Board positions which we are actively trying to fill. Please take a moment to review the attached document listing the roles and responsibilities of all ASC Board positions. Open positions are in red.

This weekend we’ll have a booth set up at Picture Day to answer any questions interested volunteers may have. You are also welcome to attend our next scheduled Board Meeting at 7:30 PM this Monday at Alameda Hospital. The meeting room is a little difficult to find so we’ll have someone at the front of the Hospital (2070 Clinton Ave.) to direct you. If you can’t make either Picture Day or the Board Meeting and are interested in volunteering please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. Thank you for your consideration.
