Kevin Doran - RIP
It's with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes that I must let you know we lost Kevin Doran last week. He passed away peacefully in his sleep Wednesday night due to heart problems.

Kevin started with our club in 2013 as the coach of our women's div 3 team, then he stepped up as our field scheduler in 2015 when Dave K relocated, and joined the LIWSA's board as treasurer last season. He's been fighting health issues for several years now but he overcame every obstacle thrown at him, so we didn't realize he had so little time left.

He was a generous man who was passionate about soccer and our club, and thought of us all as his extended family - which is why he was short with us sometimes. He bellowed at referees, stood up for his team every chance he got, and loved to tease the opposition, but couldn't find the right words to set up a drill and refused to wear pants even when we threatened to cover him in Justin Bieber blankets.

He was the first to arrive at the field, the last to leave, and the first to buy a round at the clubhouse. He will be greatly missed.

Please raise a glass to Kevin Doran! May his love of the game live on in all of us.

A Parking Warning to ALL Members
This is a reminder and a 'warning' to ALL Club members, when parking in the Clubhouse neighbourhood. Do not park on the yellow curbs, do get off the road and up on the dirt when parking directly across the street from the Clubhouse.

Some business parking lots do not mind your 'after hours' use(and don't ask me which ones) BUT and most importantly....

You can NEVER park in our immediate neighbour's parking lot next to Complete Residential Management, 3267 & 3273 Tennyson.This is strictly verbotten. And it doesn't matter what day or time of day; it is 24/7.

The owner of that lot has warned us before and now he is threatening to TOW any unauthorized vehicle away, anywhere in that lot. Signs will be posted at the Clubhouse as a reminder to members, but please ensure all of your team and your guests, who are not regular visitors to the Clubhouse, are made aware of this.

Please & thank you
