In accordance with BC Soccer Bylaw Article 7, Section 1(b), the VISL Board is now requesting submissions of proposed bylaw and rule amendments for consideration at the 2018 Semi Annual General Meeting. We are planning to have a Special Meeting after the completion of the standard Cup Draw Meeting.

Besides the McGavin Cup Final which is happening Monday Nov 13, 2017 at Layritz Turf with a 3 pm kickoff, there are a couple other dates to mark on your calendar. We will have a moments silence before the game, then have Gorge FC Div 1 vs Vic West Casuals Div 2. Prospect Lake will have the BBQ going. We will buy some burgers and dogs and they will be available to attendees by donation.
The All-star games are happening Saturday January 6/2018 at Hampton Turf.
See below for game times and coaches info. If they have not already contacted you, they may send you a note soliciting your input. There will be no League games happening that weekend – hopefully the snow stays away and we are still able to showcase select players from respective divisions as well as host the Fraser Valley Soccer League to defend both trophies that we were fortunate enough to win at the last set of games.
10 am – Division 4 vs U21
Div 4 coached by Graham Gillis of Bays United
U21 coached by Bill Merriman of Mid Isle Mariners
12 pm – Division 3 vs Division 2
Div 3 coached by Geoff Pakos of Gorge Us-Guys
Div 2 coached by Matt Conarroe of JDF
2:30 pm – FVSL Masters vs VISL Masters
FVSL coached by Dave Hleucka
VISL coached by Kevin James of Cowichan 49ers
4:30 pm – FVSL Valley (Prem) vs VISL Open (Div1)

Another date to save is for the Semi Annual Cup Draw Meeting. It is Monday January 8/2018, 7 pm start in Club Distrikt of the Strathcona Hotel.
Have a great weekend, hopefully we get all the games in.
I think it is safe to say that if you want your team to do well and play well as a unit, then you need to come together a bit and have some fun together. That is why Grant Olson of the Strath and Brent Dobbie of Heineken (Molson/Coors) have teamed up to create a Captain’s Night Out in the Sticky Wicket. A great way for the Captain to sow some leadership and build some team spirit.
Get a group of your squad down to the Strath after you text Grant or the Sticky Wicket Manager – then Brent will buy you a Heineken and Grant will supply you with some snacks no charge as well. If you plan to stick around, you get a stamp for the nightclub Distrikt downstairs.
Not sure how you cannot have a good time.
From out of town ? No problem, the Strath can set you up with some hotel rooms and you will get a phenomenal price – and you don’t need to worry about driving.
Great value from our Title Partner as well as our Gold Sponsor.
Enjoy responsibly, don’t drink and drive, have fun, get a free pass from your girlfriend/wife ….etc etc.*
