Portland Invasion Complete

What an amazing journey!  AVFC California members invaded Portland, OR and supported the boys in claret and blue well before the match, during the match, and late into the night after the match.  Our charity raffle for Acorns was an amazing success raising $1,055.  It was great seeing and meeting so many people, especially other AVFC California members.

Open training was on 23 July 2012, the night before the match.  We all enjoyed it and especially had a great time meeting players and participating in Ian Taylor's Q &A.

Acorn's Raffle:  Our raffle for Acorns was successful.  Aston Villa, Portland Timbers, and AVFC California members donated the raffle prizes ranging from Lions Club necktie to a 2012-13 team-signed Villa shirt!

Villa supporters started at Kelly's Olympian and then The Bitter End later in the afternoon where we joined the Timbers Army.  We filled Section 223 - the away supporters section at Jeld Wen Field.
