There's No Such Thing as a Free...Game?

There's No Such Thing as a Free...Game?

There may be no such thing as a free game of pickup soccer in Fairfax County after a new permit policy is put in place.  Previously, permits were only required for groups of 20 or more players. The new policy, which was approved earlier this week, requires groups of 20 or more to submit a $5.50 fee for each participant, including spectators.

Local soccer players like Danny Arnez and Greg Pedersen, who play at noon daily at Pentagon City’s Virginia Highlands Park did not know about the change and were not pleased after learning about it.

What would you expect a four-and-three-quarter-year-old to say at the end of a four-and-a-half-mile hike that she just finished using her own two feet? “What a wonderful day,” Sofi announced when we walked past the old Tavern (that I was wishing was still a tavern) at Great Falls National Park.
