Last weekend, the Doxa family got together for the first annual Christmas Party and team fundraiser at Grunions bar in Manhattan. And what a night it was!
After taking advantage of the Happy Hour specials until 8pm, a music table quiz took place with teams of 3 battling it out against each other to be crowned music kings! The early front runners for the title was the team of Burdue, Chirgwin and Hazdovac – aptly named Metal up your ass! Everything seemed to be going well until they hit the country music round, from there it went downhill. Third place ended in a tie between 2018 and 17&Under. 2018 consisted of the Russian mafia, and again they were close to taking from the Americans only to fall in the final two rounds.
The winning team ended up being that of Kyle Holland, David and Devon – Le Oosicks, who finished with 182 total points. Pete Hazdovac, represting Adriatic Travel, presented the winning team with their prizes. On the other end of the spectrum, Last place was taken by Mat Davis, Marcus Watson and Marcus Chorvat or the 9 ho 9′ers. Rumor has it they threw the last round in order to get the last place prize of SoccerCleats101 t-shirts!
Honorable mention goes out to the Red Hot Red Cards who answered White Wagon for the Billy Idol smash hit that came up in the 80′s round!
In between rounds, there were several awards handed out by club captain and team manager Derk Droze. First, Constance Balanos was handed the 2010 CSL league trophy for all of his commitment to the club over the years. Shortly after, the Gaffer John Gerard was handed the first Doxa Italia Lifetime Achievement Award for all his services as coach.
All round, it turned out to be a super successful night – thanks to all who came out in support!
