Hawai'i Here We Come!

The team left for Hawai'i today.  My sister, brother-in-law, and cousins leave for Hawai'i this week (though not for the tournament).  Me?  I'm stuck in cold Denver.  Before they left the team made some cuts from training camp.  Aaron Pitchkolan, Issac Cowles, Sterling Copeland, Jefferson Angulo, Daniel Frias, Alanso Jimenez, and Masaki Hemmi were let go.  Trialists Joel Helmick, Luis Zapata, and George Breslin-Hall, along with Academy player Dillon Serna made the trip to Hawai'i with the team.

Conor Casey, Hunter Freeman, Jamie Smith, and Anthony Wallace remained in Denver to continue their rehabs.  Martin Rivero is expected to join the team in Hawai'i on Tuesday, while Omar Cummings will leave the team on Saturday to join the Jamaican National Team in New Zealand.

Here's the updated camp roster.  One mistake I made last time I posted it is that the Rapids only have 6 international slots, I forgot about the trade we made with Vancouver last month sending one to them.

underline = unsigned trialist
* = Requires or is expected to require an international slot
