Game an item on bucket list

A Summer Bucket List included a soccer match - it proved to be such fun they did it twice.

Young Cohen Salz puts a move on Owen Stewart at an impromptu soccer game recently on the BCSS field.

Ben Macfarlane put a Big Soccer Game on the family Summer Bucket List and with summer quickly (and sadly) coming to an end, his mother sent word out that a game would happen on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at the Boundary Central Secondary School field.

Her Facebook event invitation said, “Spread the word…the bigger the better and we can always have a field for little ones and a field for bigger ones. Adults and kids are encouraged to play.”

The dress code was advertised as runners, shorts and shirt; and everyone was told to bring water and a willingness to have fun! Word was spread and it proved to be such a popular thing to do that they decided to do it all over again a week later.

They had a better understanding of sprinkler schedules so started the fun at 6 p.m. instead of 6:30.

There were hockey nets for the littles to play their game. Last week’s soccer game was scheduled for the same time that an orientation tour of the school was happening, so parents were encouraged to drop off their other kids to play soccer and join in on the orientation.
