Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our annual Local 117 Soccer Tournament a big success.

This is out 7th year running and the action was as exciting as ever. Check out photos from the tournament here.

The event took place on Saturday at Valley Ridge Park in Seatac. The championship match pitted a highly skilled Safeway Azteca (liquor distribution) team up against our Taxi members, with Safeway coming from behind to win an intense game in overtime 3-1.

The Safeway group had won the tournament in previous years, but not in the last two, and were excited to have the trophy back in the warehouse.

Members from Fred Meyer, Supervalu, a Safeway Ice Cream team (last year's champ!) along with a determined, but severely challenged Local 117 staff team also participated in the event.

"It's great to have our members and their families come together for an event like this and enjoy themselves," said John Scearcy, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters 117. "This is what union solidarity building is all about."

If you're interested in putting a team together for next year's tournament, it's never too early. Contact the Local 117 office at 206-441-4860 for more information.
