posticon Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic


It looks like the 2007 Make A Wish
Lacrosse Classic will be October 12th
at Crusader Stadium on the campus
of Strake Jesuit College Prep in Houston.

This will be a GCLA Fall All-Star Game
and Music Festival, and proceeds will go
to the Make A Wish Foundation.

Should be a great time!

Re: Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic


Who hosts/ is in charge of this event and how can people volunteer to help coordinate activities?

Also, how are the All-Star teams chosen? My vote is a GCLA All-Star team VS the GCLA Champs.

Re: Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic


Each GCLA team will have roughly equal
represntation, and each teams' player/reps
are chosen by the teams themselves in
the manner they choose. This is most in
keeping with the "spirit" of the GCLA.

We would love volunteers of any kind.
Email me at metrolax@[sign in to see URL] when you
have the chance and I'll be happy to
go over various things with you.

The event itself is a league-wide effort,
hence the need to get every team excited
about being involved- rather than have
the "all-star" teams dominated by a
relative few number of teams.

Thanks for posting!

The GCLA vs. the at-large [sign in to see URL]? In the interest of a good show I hope corpus and new orleans are bringing all-stars as well. Is it just the Metro and southside all stars? Personally I would like to see an even match especially since it is all for charity, and I dont think GCLA vs Merto/Southside is even close to an even match. People get bored during blowouts, is that any way to attract people to the sport?

Matt- Corpus will be well-represented,
and I'm trying to get as many NOLC
guys as possible. It should be a fun
mix.

SHSU was invited to bring players as well,
but they're going LSA this fall. We're
working on some expansion projects all the
time, so next year we might see another
team or two bringing players.

Should be fun!

Re: Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic


I think the Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic is a great idea and should be a lot of fun, and great exposure for our league and sport, but as of today we are 20 days away and I have heard very little to nothing about this anywhere. I understand that someone is supposed to be taking care of media coverage and getting the word out, but this event isn't even listed on Make A Wish's website.
 Also, I like that each team is in charge of different things but this has caused a huge lack of communication problem. I have emailed multiple people about a band I confirmed to play at the event and no one has responded. Are they still playing? What equipment do they bring? What time do they play?
What about the clinic that we are hosting before the game? Has everyone told their kids/ players about this?
We really need to come together here in these last days and work together to make this a success. There are too many of us in the GCLA to have this be a failure.

Re: Make A Wish Lacrosse Classic


We're on top of it. Each of the teams
are handling their responsibilities well
so far.

As for bands, have any and all bands that
want to play to contact Joe Ashizawa
at 713-819-8095, or jyousuke03@[sign in to see URL].

In contrast to the event many years ago,
Make A Wish tends to keep many of these
events at arm's length (I suspect the
lawyers have gotten involved- liability)
so it does not surprise me that its not
on their website.

The PSAs have been forwarded to me yesterday
and will be going our promptly.

Thanks for your concerns and help.
