SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST 2006
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY COULD NOT HAVE
BEEN A BETTER WEEKEND FOR SOCCER IN JACKSON. After a fog bank lifted Saturday
morning, it was beautiful sunshine the rest of the weekend. By the end of the
day Saturday, the tournament had only gotten 25 minutes behind and on Sunday,

rain stop "THE SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST.".....Matter of fact, we haven't even let
even a lot of rain (7 inches in 2004) stop the tournament.
As of Friday, the fields at North Park and Kate Campbell had held up well to the
3 to 4 inches of rain that we have had. Matterfact, considering the rain, they
look GREAT !!! At 5 A.M. Saturday, we started putting out sand only in the areas
that had not drained.
The weather sure cooperated on Saturday and Sunday and I could not believe that
I even heard a comment that it was TOO hot. That sun sure looked great to me.
ANYTHING BUT RAIN. Last year I said that and it was COLD, this year's weather
was GREAT !!!!

2006". After getting home, if you have any suggestions or ideas as to how we can
improve the tournament in the future, please e-mail us. It is our goal to
continue to improve the tournament and to make it the best possible experience.
Please also let me thank our tournament director Kelly who did an absolutley
