Happy New Years NSSC members!
There is an adult coed soccer league running from Feb 12th through April 15th at the McGaw YMCA in Evanston. The great news is that even if you don't have a team, you can sign up as a free agent. I've met many a friend and played with many teams in that way over the years.... good times.
This message will also be posted in the Recruitment Message Board at the NSSC Meetup site. Replies will only go to me. If you want to post something about this meetup, like a call for team members or something, visit the message board and drop some pixels.
