Rain failed to dampen the enthusiasm of parents and children who flocked to town for the 16th Annual Little Bear Soccer Tournament.
There were 43 teams entered in the tournament — that was about 600 players plus parents and families who accompanied them.
Organizer Alan Chell said the soccer tournament was a great success for the 43 youth teams from BC and Alberta. He said he would specifically like to thank:
- The City of Revelstoke and School District #19 for the excellent preparation and condition of the playing fields.
- Revelstoke Youth Soccer executive, coaches, players and parents for all their work
- The community of Revelstoke for outstanding hospitality. The teams raved about the friendly reception they received from hotels, motels and restaurants.
