Pack-the-Mack Fundraiser, September 6, October 23.... (2018-08-27 15:22:28)

BOONE, NC – Youth soccer has been a staple in Watauga County for decades. Watauga County Parks & Recreation has been offering soccer since 1973 and High Country Soccer Association has been providing professional youth coaching since 1986. And

the last 10 years has seen unprecedented growth in the sport not only nationwide but locally as well. Part of the area’s growth is due to the beautiful facility at the Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex. Its artificial surface makes for an ideal playing space even under extreme weather. But artificial turf eventually needs replaced.


To help pay for returfing at TMSC, Pack-the-Mack fundraisers will be held during two Appalachian State home soccer games this fall. A picnic-style dinner for $7 per person will be offered in the parking lot by the stadium field prior to each game. Dinner includes burgers, hotdogs, sides, desserts, and a drink. As with all ASU home soccer games, there is no charge for attendance. See below for details.
