The Ballistic United Soccer Club Hall of FamE EVENT
The Ballistic United Soccer Club - Hall of Fame was created in 2010 as one-way to reflect on the over 40 years of the club’s history and recognize individuals who have contributed in many different ways to the success of the club. Whether a board member, referee, coach, player, volunteer, or administrator, the clubs Hall of Fame will induct a maximum of three (3) of the most deserving individuals each year that are submitted to the nominating committee.
This year’s Dinner & Dance will take place on Saturday, October 12th, at The Pleasanton Senior Center at 5353 Sunol Boulevard. Cocktails/silent auction will begin at 6:00pm with the Dinner & Hall of Fame Inductions beginning at 7:00pm. Dancing will continue until 11pm.
Last year our Hall of Fame class of Marty Espinoza, Bob Martinez & Gary Patton were a well deserved group of inductees. The introductory and acceptance speeches touched the hearts of many of the 200 plus individuals. The attendees included many current coaches, past players, past and current board members, and many people with a wide variety of relationships with our club.
The current nominating committee is made up of Kevin Crow (BUSC Technical Director) Tony Chavarria (BUSC Division 4 Director) and Paul Smith (BUSC Board Member). The role of the nominating committee is to determine the most worthy candidates out of the many possible choices that are submitted.
All profits from the Dinner & Dance will benefit our Field Fund and the Ballistic Scholarship Fund; both very worthwhile causes and very valuable to our present & future Ballistic family.
The slogan “Celebrating the Past – Planning for Our Future” was created to explain why the event takes place. Both events (golf portion & dinner/silent auction) are fundraisers for the club. Individuals can choose to attend either event separately or attend both events and help us together celebrate our long established history.
It is my hope as the technical director of the club, that our membership will take ownership of this wonderful event. Our current members and their families are direct beneficiaries of all of the hard work and volunteer spirit that went into building the club beginning in 1968! These early pioneer efforts and visionaries helped establish the Sports Park and Val Vista.
The recipients will be announced soon. In the mean time, we will be asking for both our recreational and competitive teams and coaches, to begin to reach out to their neighbors, friends, family, and corporate relations. Details of various ways to support the event will be presented shortly. We will be looking for support particularly in the areas of silent auction items, assistance at the event and Hall of Fame dinner event ticket sales.
Anyone wishing to help with this event is encouraged to contact: Anna Molz at email@example.com or 925.462.9691.
