Clovis Challenge Cup

The California Odyssey Soccer Club is hosting their Challenge Cup in Clovis, CA on the weekend of October 24th and 25th.  The full GU12 schedule will be available here.  Our schedule is here (see the bottom).

Six (6) accepted teams as of Monday, 10/12/2009


Clovis East High School is where all of our games will be played. BE CAREFUL!! The tournament lists the address as 2901 DeWolf Avenue, Clovis, CA 93619. Neither Yahoo nor Google maps have that address. Same if you go use the address for the school found on their website. By entering 4500 N Leonard Ave, Fresno, CA I ended up on the North side of the school near the parking lots. 4000 puts you at the south end of the school where the fields are, but I don’t know if there is parking or fences or…

For whatever reason Google has not digitized the address on N DeWolf Ave so you go from many blocks south of the school to many blocks north…

Other Venues were Clovis West HS 1070 E Teague Ave; Fresno, CA 937209 & Buchanan HS 1560 N. Minnewawa; Clovis, California 93619

Google says it’s faster by over 20 minutes to drive North to the 580 and then take Hwy 99 South even though it’s over 30 miles longer… Of course they are NOT considering traffic implications. Drive time is between 3 and 3.5 hours. Update… we made it in 2.5 hours there and 2.7 coming back with just a minor hitch on the 101 in Morgan Hill.
