Foosball tournament to benefit Sgt. Stephens Memorial Scholarship Fund set June 13

Posted June 4, 2010

The fourth annual Army Sgt. Blake Stephens Memorial Foosball Tournament will be held Sunday, June 13, beginning at 2 p.m. at Hooligans Pub at 122 North Third Ave. in Pocatello.

Stephens, 25, of Pocatello, died May 8, 2007, in Salman Pak, Iraq, of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle.

All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Stephens scholarship fund set up at the Idaho State University Foundation.

Entry fees are $10 per person, which includes a T-shirt and a drink coupon. There will be two divisions, beginner and experienced, in the blind draw, double-elimination tournament. The first 45 players to sign up will receive a Sgt. Blake Stephens memorial T-shirt; those who sign up after that will receive other T-shirts. Participants will draw for partners so individuals can sign up. For those who want to support this cause, but don’t play foosball, there is a noncompetitive division.

For more information on the tournament or to sign up, call  (208) 234-0213.
