It is with great sadness that I am sharing the news of the passing of David Margrave on Thursday, June 11. Dave has been a long time referee volunteer in Area 1C and Region 214, South Pasadena, with an indomitable spirit even as cancer has taken its toll on his body. As recently as this April, Dave was still pursuing his National Referee badge and volunteering wherever and whenever he was asked. He will be missed.
The family has planned a Memorial Service for Saturday, June 27, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Garfield Youth House that Dave helped rebuild in 2007. The Youth House is located just north of the tennis courts in Garfield Park, located at 625 Stratford Avenue in South Pasadena.
I apologize, yet again, I am on V5, with all the changes.
I am hoping that this is near as it can be, a couple of field changes, time changes, nothing to much to write home about.
BUT- Please check your schedule often as you can see it is a moving target!!!
This past weekend in Cathedral City, Section One hosted the State Games. On Saturday it was league playoffs, we were represented by Region 60, Alhambra GU14 team, they made it all the way to the Championship game, and were beat out in overtime. Congratulations girls.
On Sunday it was the All-Star championships, we were represented by two Pasadena teams, they won at the Section One playoffs moving on the the State Games. They were BU10 team coached by Daryl Topalian and BU14 team coached by Mike Shintaku.
Well a huge Congratulations go out to both teams as BOTH teams finished as the State Champions, very exciting. Thanks to all those who went out and supported these teams, the Referee crews especially who have to go out and cover games on behalf of Area 1C.
