Loyola Soccer Tailgate Oct 3rd

The fall 2018 Old Timers newsletter will be out in late September but we have two very important announcements that the Old Timers Soccer Association of Maryland would like to announce prior to the newsletter with both members and prospective members.

First, we are extremely pleased to announce that a new Old Timers board was elected in June 2018 to include some new members who are interested in providing some leadership, guidance and additional assistance with the mission of the current membership that includes growth, fund raising, execution of new events and ideas as well as consistent direction for the board and the members of  OTSAM.

Serving the membership for the next three years will be the following individuals:

Executive Board 2018-19

President – Phillip Tirabassi

Vice President – Michael Libber

Treasurer – Bernie McVey

Secretary – Fran McGrath


Board Members 2018-19

                                            Al Dawson

                                           Jerry Cirri

                                           Georgia Holland Pence

                                           Norma Jean Keefer

                                           Tom Giordano

                                           Georgia Bischoff

                                           Steve Craig

                                           Michael Barger

                                           Larry Sancomb

We we would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to Len Lewandowski who has retired from the board.  Len faithfully served the Old Timers for two separate terms as treasurer and then as treasurer/secretary for a grand total of twenty years. The entire board wishes rest and relaxation in retirement!


NEXT ANNOUNCEMENT: Tailgate at Loyola University on October 3rd

On Wednesday night October 3rd at 7 PM at Loyola University’s Ridgley Complex, the Loyola men’s soccer team will take on Patriot League rival Bucknell.  The Old Timers will have a tailgate before the game and the Executive Board is extending an invitation all members who are paid up in their dues and all Hall of Famers to be their guests.  Your paid membership entitles you to a  free ticket that includes food and drink.  We are encouraging  all members to please bring a guest or two with you but there will be an additional charge of $10 for each for your guests for their entrance to the event to cover the cost of  their food and drink. However, if you would like to sign up your guest as a new member of OTSAM to help us grow the membership, that will also be highly welcomed as well!!!  (Remember their paid membership will also include food and drinks as well and help grow the organization)

Please note this event as an adult affair as alcohol will be served so we discourage you from bringing children under 13.  What I need is for people to RSVP to me by September 26th telling me who you are and whether or not you are attending and whether or not you are bringing a guest.  You can pay for your guest by sending me a check or giving me the money the evening of.  We will also set up the website so you can pay online for guests  through Pay Pal below on this page.

Please join us  this evening and use this opportunity to meet the new executive board and give us your thoughts and suggestions on items involving the Old Timers.  We  are very interested in more individuals who will join the organization  who are also interested in maintaining the integrity and historical significance of the game of soccer in Maryland so if you have a friend who might be interested or has the same interest, please invite him or her along.

This event will also take the place of the fall general membership meeting.

NOTE:   We will be using the large tent at the north side of the field which has a capacity of 125 so don’t wait until the last minute to decide.  Since we have to give a number to the caterer, there will be NO tickets sold at the door for this event.  You will have to reserve a space ahead of time.
