While the soccer goals have remained firmly padlocked to the baseball backstop since November, and will remain there until mid-March, the Chapel Square field on Holborn Avenue in Annandale never wants for action. From the moment the Annandale Boys and Girls Club (ABGC) seeds the field and lays down the winter blanket, to the great days of sledding down the hill, to wildlife visitors large and small, to watching the snow slowly melt before the blanket is removed it’s a never-ending show that the BRYC webmaster enjoys watching from his home across the street.
In January it was a family of deer on the winter’s most blustery day...and happy kids sledding down the hill when school was cancelled the next. Last week it was Canadian geese and the Annandale High School lacrosse team. In just a few weeks it’ll be BRYC soccer.
