The brainchild of the Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association, and funded via a Creative Engagement Grant through SE Uplift, the area-wide event sets up an SE Portland competition of kickball skills.
Arranged in an east vs west setup, Creston-Kenilworth will face off against Woodstock on Saturday, July 19th from 2-4 pm at Woodstock Park . The winner will take on Brentwood-Darlington a week later in the bid to represent the western teams on Saturday, July 26 from 2-4pm at Brentwood Park.
To the east, we’ll see Lents and Foster-Powell battle on Sunday, July 20th from 2-4pm at Kern Park. The winner will compete with Mt. Scott-Arleta on Sunday, July 26 from 2-4pm at Lents Park.
It all comes to a head on Saturday, August 2nd from 2-4 pm at Arleta School, when the championship match names a winner.

It looks like there will be a $5 suggested donation to help defray some of the costs to the neighborhood associations. No one will be turned away.
