Summer Soccer Tournament

The last 3 weeks we have had groups from Hershey visiting. We decided to help host a soccer tournament. Claudy really did all of the organizing with some locals and our friend Aaron. The first week was 11-14 year olds, which kinda ended up to being 14-17 year olds. So this week, we included more teams and made the age range to the 20's. 

Here are some pictures from the week.

Of course, I took time to play with some of the kids from the village :) 
Natha - the one on the one of my favorites.

So Claudy and some of our other RG employees, were on a team. They were losing 3-0.. David (YP from Hershey), leans over and says, "if they score, I'm storming the field like the other team and picking up Claudy." Well, Claudy scored and David did as he said...he thought others would follow...they didn't... Until the 2nd and 3rd goals...That's right it was a come back.

We ended with a beautiful moonlight. 

It was great to have the community out some many nights in a row and to see them get excited!!
