Beach Soccer Cup tournament 2019 at Good Harbor Beach Saturday

GHS soccer team arrives early to assist with the set up. 2019 marks the 6th year for the New England Beach Soccer (NEBS) Cup (founded by Gloucester natives)

Read about its beginnings (Gloucester founders) and all about Saturday in today’s paper here “Soccer in the Sand: New England Beach Soccer returns to Good Harbor Beach Saturday”

This year, all of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Fishermen Youth Soccer as well as the Gloucester High School Soccer Boosters and Soccer without borders.

Players drawn to a tournament hosted on beautiful beaches have an affinity for the natural world. Arriving teams and competitors stopped to check out the piping plovers before hitting the sand, and again when they left. In a similar way, the little mascots engendered care during the surfing competition.

“The New England Beach Soccer Cup tournament is not just about crowning a champion, but more importantly giving back to the community.

This year, all of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Fishermen Youth Soccer as well as the Gloucester High School Soccer Boosters.

These two organizations have been instrumental in the development of thousands of young student-athletes and soccer players and have played a vital part in the community for several decades. We’re so happy to be able to give back to these deserving organizations and re-invest in our youth and community!”

We can’t be there because of a Fishermen Youth Soccer game this Saturday–AWAY AWAY as in Haverhill– but we’ll check out that this cool new add-on: LIVE streaming the event!

Manchester Essex Varsity Soccer Out duels St. Mary’s For Division 1 North Championship

Ranked 7th overall going into the Division 4 North Tournament Manchester-Essex first took on Mystic Valley and fought to a 1-0 win this past Wednesday. The win moved them to Manning Bowl in Lynn where they had to face the number 1 seed in St. Mary’s on a cold (!) Sunday afternoon. This was Manchester Essex first trip to a championship game..ever. Leading for much of the game at 2-1 Manchester Essex saw St Mary’s score to tie the game late in the second half which is where the score stood at the end of regulation time. After two scoreless overtime periods the teams moved on to penalty kicks to decide the win. Manchester Essex took the win with a 5-4 penalty kick score and now moves on to the Division 4 State Finals! It was a great game with constant action at both ends of the field. On to the State Final!

John Nasser Submits-

The 2013 GHS Field Hockey team played Tewksbury this past Wednesday in Tewksbury after qualifying for Tournament play during the regular season.
Even though the Gloucester girls lost 1-0 on a very hard fought game, they played their hearts out and gave everything they had.
Gloucester hasn’t seen tournament action since 2008 according to the GDT.
Congratulations to all the ladies and first year Head Coach Lauren Riley on an exciting and successful season.
They’ve made their school and fans proud!

Muffy White’s Muff Riders Captain Tad Is Gunning For The Competition In This Year’s GMG/ Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament At Spindrift

There’s not much more that repulses me more than double denim but if I had to say there was something, it would be a hairy dude wearing a double denim cutoff denim shirt/denim speedo combination.

Makes me want to throw up a little bit in my mouth.


That being said if you don’t think Muffy’s Muff Riders are bringing the heat, you’ve got another thing coming.

I hope to see you all there on March 16th to support your favorite Dodgeballers and or charity- Next Step.  An organization that makes life better for young adults afflicted with life threatening diseases.

Wanna Talk About Class? Ryan and Wood Distillery Has It In Spades

I knew the Dodgeball rosters would get filled quickly and we would round out the 20 team brackets in a day or so.

Even though Ryan and Wood didn’t get a team submitted this year Bobby Ryan emailed to tell me that he still wanted to help sponsor the 2013 GMG/Farm Bar and Grill Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament at Camp Spindrift.

That’s what you call being a community organization.  that’s what you call class.

Ryan and Wood Beauport Vodka, Knockabout Gin, Folly Cove Rum.  If you’re not drinking the highest quality spirits made locally or anywhere you’re doing a major disservice to your liver.

Big Time Bluefin Tournament Coming To Gloucester This Summer

blue fin blowout

Thirty years ago Gloucester, Massachusetts was home to one of the best Bluefin Tuna tournaments in New England.  So when my good friends Rob Bouley and Joe Boreland brought up the idea for a big tournament, I knew it was time to bring all tuna fanatics back to America’s Oldest Seaport for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT!
Our home base at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort is the premier location to access the tuna fishing grounds north to Ipswich Bay, east to Jeffrey’s Ledge and south to Stellwagen Bank.  Our mission is to gather commercial and recreational, experienced and greenhorn, young enthusiasts and old salts together for a weekend full of huge prizes, great bands, big parties and amazing fishing!
Nothing compliments two days of competitive fishing like three days of music, food, cocktails and fish stories.  The feel of a big tournament will be in the air with the suspense of the day’s cash Calcutta. Get a chance to talk to some of the captains and mates on the new National Geographic series “Wicked Tuna” and watch as some of the biggest tuna fish of the year are weighed in right on location.
Whether you are the big cash prize winner or enjoying everything the tournament has to offer, we are excited to have you aboard with us at the most exciting tuna tournament of the year! See you at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT

Stay Salty!

Video- Mr Bentley From Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Squad "Ass With Class" Is Giving Back To The Littles, Tourney Rules and Brackets

Rules of the 2012 bikini/speedo Dodgeball tournament

All 5 team members will start by lining up against the back of their side of the court,
5 balls will be distributed across the center line (2 large kickball style balls, and 3
smaller “stingers”)

On the ref’s whistle, teams can race to the center to claim the balls; those who get balls
must retreat to the back wall again before throwing their first ball. Balls thrown before
that will not count.

Balls that bit the ground first or the side of the court are dead, and do not count for outs if
they then hit a player.

If a player is holding a ball, they can use it to block other balls thrown at them.

If you are hit by a ball or your throw is caught cleanly by a member of the opposite team,
you are out, and must immediately stand in the side court area in the order you were hit.

If a player catches a ball, one player from their team who is already out in the side court
area can come back in the game. (follow the order of outs, the first one who was out is
the first back in, etc.)

No head hunting. Balls thrown at the face will not count as outs and the thrower will be

Balls that fly out of the court will be retrieved and returned to the side of the court where
they went out of bounds.

Once all 5 players from a team are out, the match is over.

This is a great event for a great cause… have fun!!

Twenty teams of men and women in bikinis and speedos trying to annihilate each other medieval style on the Dodgeball Court Behind The Farm Bar and Grille On March 4th with the profits from the entry fees  going to which provides help for teens and young adults afflicted with life threatening illnesses.

Can you imagine 20 teams of 5 and then all of their supports of how much insanity and fun that is going to be?  This is going to be the entertainment event of all of 2012!!!!!

Word Is That One of Gloucester’s Biggest Supporters Of Live local Music Andy Mullholland Will Be Sporting The Speedo and Leading His Dog Bar Squad “American Bacon”.  Andy caused quite a stir with the team name which is a direct shot across the bow of his Cape Ann Farmer’s Market Seafood Throwdown Nemesis Erik Lorden From Passport whose Team had already been named “Canadian Bacon”.  There will be no love lost between these mortal enemies on the Dodgeball Court.  Question Is- Who Will Bring The Meat?


We do not know how athletic these teams will be compared to the many Cross Fit and Athletic Club Squads but they will surely win the straight sexy points with their many fans!

Mark Your Calendars Now!  March 4th at Noon!  The Farm Bar and Grille for The Ultimate Spectacle that will Be-
