Peter Alegi wins the 2015 Turkey Shoot tournament

The 2015 Turkey Shoot, a Michigan subbuteo tradition, held on Sunday was the first hosted by the new Grand Rapids Table Soccer Club (http://grtsc.wordpress.com). The number of players was smaller than expected due to some last-minute withdrawals, but it was still a good Sunday of flicking. Many young soccer players watched the competition and tried Subbuteo for the first time on the demonstration table. Peter Alegi defeated Mike Ewer in the final while Paul Pate and Brian Lambert shared third place.

Elections for new ASA President

As you may have read on the American Subbuteo Association Facebook page, Chris Sweetland had to resign his position as our president.  While we are saddened by this, we understand his reasons and wish him nothing but the best and look forward to see him at future ASA events.  With that in mind, we need to elect a new president.  As the Vice-President of the East Region, I would like to start the call to nomination for a new ASA President.  If you would like to nominate someone for ASA President, please submit your nomination to our secretary, Matt Fox, at eckatofox@netscape.net.  Canidates must be at least 21 years of age.  The nomination process will be over a two week period (November 16, 2015 - November 29, 2015) and the election process, if there are more than one nominee, will be held over the following two weeks.  We look forward to electing our new President!
