Colin Guise fundraiser

posted Jan 30, 2015, 11:47 AM by Neil Farber

Attention Kamloops Soccer Community!

Some of you may have heard that KYSA Vice-President Colin Guise is seriously ill in hospital.

Colin suffered a brain hemorrhage just before Christmas. He has undergone two operations since being admitted to hospital and there’s possibly of the need for another. 

The prognosis is that Colin will be off work and in hospital for an extended period.

As you are likely aware, Colin is one of the most devoted volunteers we have. He has taken on the unheralded role of chairing our Discipline and Volunteer Screening Committees for the past two years, and done a remarkable job in this challenging role. He has also served on the KYSA board for close to a decade and has acted as V-P for the past two years. 

Colin is also passionate about the officiating side of our great game and has refereed in both the adult and youth leagues for more years than I care to remember. He has also served on the Kamloops Soccer Referees Association executive on and off for many years. 

Like us all, incidents like this can cause a great hardship on a family––particularly financially.

With this in mind, the KYSA is asking the Kamloops soccer community to come to the aid of the Guise family through a donation of whatever you can afford. The KYSA is making a donation to kick things off.

Here’s how you can donate:

1. Go on the KYSA web site (www.kysa.net). Click the “Register Now” button on the home page. Click “Colin Guise Donation Account”. This should lead you to a form that will allow you to donate $25, $50 or $100 on-line. Our system will not accept any other denominations.

2. Leave your donation (cash or cheque only please; if a cheque, please make it out to: "Kamloops Youth Soccer Association") at Hansport (#1 – 8th Street, North Kamloops) or drop into the office upstairs at the Kamloops Soccer Dome.

3. Drop your donation off at the KYSA office on McArthur Island between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm, Tuesday through Friday (or from 9:00am to 4:00pm this coming Saturday/Sunday, January 31/February 1).

The KYSA can issue you a receipt, however, we do not have the ability to offer a tax deduction at this time.

Of course, every penny of every dollar donated will go to the Guise family.

Colin has a tough few months ahead of him and whatever we can do to ease the burden on him and his family will be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kindest regards,

KEITH LIDDIARD

Release: Immediate

KYSA TO HOST 50TH ANNIVERSARY BBQ!

KAMLOOPS, BC –– The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association (KYSA) is hosting a 50th Anniversary Barbecue on Saturday, September 27 in the Special Events Arbour on the Pow Wow grounds. 

The BBQ kicks-off at 6:00pm.

Tickets for the event are now on sale for $10 each through the KYSA office on McArthur Island.

KYSA-member teams who wish to attend as a group can purchase 20 tickets for $100.

Included in the ticket price is a hot dog or hamburger, a bag of chips and a soft drink PLUS each ticket holder will receive a 50th Anniversary KYSA T-Shirt. There’ll be entertainment, a few speeches,  opportunities to participate in some fun activities and lots of prizes.

The objective of the BBQ is to mark the 50th year the KYSA has been in existence and to bring together and thank the many volunteers and staff who have contributed to the success of the organization over the last half-century. 

The KYSA was started, innocently enough, in 1964, when a group of school teachers and interested volunteers began a youth soccer league with four teams. The organization now registers approximately 3700 players annually and has a staff of six to help run the various leagues and coach and player development programs.

Former TRU Athletic Director Pat O’Brien was one of the individuals who helped form the inaugural league when he was employed as a high school teacher. He is expected to attend the celebratory BBQ on Saturday!

The KYSA office is open from 9:00am to 2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday. Interested participants can all the KYSA office at 250-376-2750 for more information.
