Question: What happens when you combine Thanksgving and soccer?
Answer: A fun-tastic time at Menace Soccer FestiFall.
Thanks to the 32 teams who joined the party at Aliber Soccer Complex for this inaugural event on November 11th. We had a blast hosting you!
We didn't know quite what to expect when we hatched the idea to see what would happen if we brought the spirit of Kick around the Clock outdoors.
So, we tried it, and we've been overwhelmed by your support and positive feedback. Like Kick around the Clock (a 3v3 tradition each Super Bowl weekend), we promoted some silly team awards, and we were impressed by participants' Thanksgiving-themed creativity.
Congratulations to the award winners and bracket champions, who all earned a pumpkin pie for their awesomeness.

Thanks to our partners at Soccer West Soccer Club and to Bill Wychulis, who worked in cold weather to prepare eight fields for the 5v5 action.
Thanks to y'all for being part of the Menace's mission to grow soccer.
Time to start planning for our upcoming 3v3 event, coming to Ignit Sports & Fitness (new site!) on February 2nd and 3rd.
And, with year one of FestiFall in the books, we're already getting to work on ways to grow the fun at next year's 5v5 festivities.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays!
