SHPE Soccer Tournament

Hey HGSA !!

Anyone interested in forming a soccer team to play in the SHPE (Society
of Hispanic Professional Engineers) soccer intramurals? I think it
would be a really fun idea! Check out this message from SHPE and let me
know (pedromor@ufl.edu) if you are interested.

Cualquier persona interesada en formar parte de un equipo de futbol con
la Sociedad de Ingenieros Profesionales Hispanos (SHPE) dejenme saber!
Creo que seria una idea fantastica!!

To: Pedro B. Morales <pedromor@ufl.edu>

Hi Pedro,

I am so excited to hear that the Hispanic Graduate Student
Association is interested in forming a team. This is a fund
raising event where all proceeds will go to a scholarship we
formed for incoming freshmen to the college of engineering from
the city of Gainesville.

To register a team all you have to do is fill out a registration
form which can can either print off our website
(http://grove.ufl.edu/~shpeuf), pick up from our table at the
Reitz Union, or pick up from our office Weil 376. With the
registration form you must turn in the $50 donation which is our
team discount. If you don't have enough for a team, individuals
may pay $10 each. The team deadline is Thursday, February 23. The
individual deadline is walkon, therefore 10:00 am on Saturday,
February 25. We would prefer if they registered before Saturday so
we could better plan for the event.

With registration each individual receives a T-shirt, Goals for
Tomorrow wrist band, and BBQ food provided for lunch. There are
also metals and prize packs from Lockheed Martin for the top three
teams.

Teams consist of 6-8 people. They must be co-ed with a 2:3 gender
ratio. Games will be 5 on 5 and each game will have two ten minute
halves. We will be using intramural rules. The number of games
will depend on the number of teams we have the day of the event.

If you have any other questions feel free to email me back. All
this information and more can be found on the website I provided
above under the Soccer Tournament link. Thank you for your
interest in the Goals for Tomorrow Soccer Tournament.

Thanks,
Elena Briz
SHPE-UF Soccer Co-Chair
