Castlegar minor soccer president Ralph Lunn has sent the word out to Castlegar area soccer parents: you need to get involved and help out or soccer in this area could fold.

In an plea to the community, Lunn wrote:

Castlegar Minor Soccer Association (CMSA) will be holding their Annual General Meeting in preparation for next years Youth & Mini soccer season on Tuesday October 18,2011, at the Castlegar Complex at 7:00 p.m.

We, the Executive, have reached a cross roads with respect to the future of soccer in Castlegar, as the current vacancy of so many volunteer positions has made the CMSA unable to function moving forward into next season. We need all the volunteer positions filled at this upcoming AGM, or CMSA has no other option than to cease operation.

We, the Executive, have a great vision for the future growth of soccer in Castlegar, the only thing we are missing is help from the soccer community (ie. Parents) to make it happen. CMSA had almost 500 kids playing soccer in Castlegar this past season, we know the kids want to play this great game, but now it’s up to the parents to help them make it happen.

We will have door prizes, food & drinks, and a child minding in place for the AGM, to enable as many parents as possible to attend on October 18.

If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Ralph Lunn at lunns5@shaw.ca
