Happy Friday WC Surf!

Just a few competitive matches left for 2019 as this is the final weekend of play for the competitive teams this year.  All of the games will be listed below and we hope you'll come out and support this weekend.  We have some great opportunities and featured neighbors in this issue, and we hope you will check it out!

FINAL REMINDER - MONDAY, 12/16 we have our exclusive WC Surf SC Day at the new Copa Soccer Training Center. Click HERE to RSVP for one of three available Open House Tours.  Space is limited!   This is your opportunity to experience COPA by testing out their state of the art technology, and a chance to scrimmage in COPA's world class Futsal Arena.  All attendees will receive ONE FREE MONTH to any COPA program, and swag that you won't want to miss! Space is limited so please register for one of the three tour times.  Check out the Copa Day information below!

Finally, we've had a wonderful calendar year and 49 years as a club, so next week we'll recap some of our club's rich history since 1971 and this past 2019.  For those alum's of WCSC receiving this newsletter and would like to share any stories or pictures since 1971, please do and send to wcsurfadmin@wcsc.org.
