Great Carbondale MLS camp

Dear Editor:On behalf of the Carbondale Recreation Department, I would like to say a huge thank-you to all who were involved in the recent MLS Soccer camp that was in Carbondale the week of June 5.More than 70 kids participated and really showcased the level of enthusiasm for soccer in our valley – all the kids were great ambassadors. A big thank-you goes out to the families who housed the British coaches for the week: Pam and David Rosenthal, Nancy Cohen and Kelley Mitchell, Janet Coursey, and Jenny Sloan – you really pampered these guys, and we are all very appreciative for your hospitality.Thank you to Bill Gavette and the Carbondale fire department for bringing Engine 1 out for the water fight – a kids’ dream come true. Thank you to Sue Santos at River Valley Ranch for the pool passes to the ranch house for the coaches, and the town Public Works Department for again prepping the field into great condition.A huge thank-you to all the very supportive parents for all you do for your children. You are all so instrumental to making this camp a success. The camp will be back again the same week of next year for another week of fun. Please call me if you would like any of the hundreds of great photos from the week. Remember to cheer your team on in the World Cup – go Australia!Chris “Woodsie” WoodsCarbondale recreationand special events coordinator
