Our mud volleyball fun started on Friday as we went to the site off Rio Bravo and 2nd street to set up camp. We brought our pop up tent for shade along with some tarps, chairs, and a table.
Our first game was at 9:20 a.m. on Saturday morning, we arrived early at 7 a.m. to beat the crowds. The buzzard for our game began and we lost 16-25. It bruised our egos but we were ready for the next match which was against our friends who take this tournament very seriously. The Shark’s have been playing together for 5 years and needless to say kicked our butts! Our last 3 games ended in victory and we ended the tournament with a 3-2 record. I would say I’m pretty proud of that record considering none of us have played volleyball together before. We didn’t make it to the winners tournament, but that is ok because it was the best time we have had helping our local hospital raise money. Our preparations for next year are underway. We have recruited other team mates to buy some pop up tents, we have come up with a theme for our tent, and I can’t wait to do this again. It was a great time for everyone!
