    I don't think I can do next week, but I will try for the following thursday. Now you guys know the jist - small net, uncertain numbers, eat first, bring other activities to pass down-time... could be fun to do again. There is a group called 'No-Apology Volleyball', join that for more casual. It's hard to tell if people prefer a real game because I think many keep quiet, but still - check it out and let's MEET UP again soon.

    Hey, I'm hoping you don't mind if I stop by tonight! I just joined the group, so the RSVPs were already closed.

      Yeah I'm not really exclusive I just didn't want to be the dolt who invited a hundred people to play 6 on 6, but we have plenty to occupy and really it's just a beach evening at worst. so yeah, anybody come - I didn't want it to be restrictive

    Awright, day-of check-in. Good weather. Maybe bring some water or food.

    My charger is dead so no speakers unless somebody has a portable charger, I have backup smaller speakers.

    We will play 6 on 6. Rotate, easy swap teams as we go.
    Serve from anywhere. Don't apologize for poor service.
    Play off the bounce. (Just keep the play going and try to not catch/throw, do bump/set/spike)
    We forget to keep score.

    Bring soccer balls, slackline, whatever to entertain while not on court (uncertainty in how many will show)

    I'll be there prob wearing a red hat. Likely go for wings at Denman Tap House after.

    Hi, I'm kind of new in volley ball is that alright? or you are only looking for people who know how to play?

      beginners welcome, trust me - you'll see the vibe is lax. But try and have a thick skin anyways, it really seems like everybody is insecure about their volleyball serve.

      May 30, 2014

  • LILY

    Oh! Yes! Ive been wanting to play volleyball for awhile now :)

    May 27, 2014

    • Marc

      cool cool cool

    So a heads up - remember I'm just a guy with a volleyball net (so 6 on 6 at one time, easy to switch in and out). Sometimes the RSVPs are inconsistent (sometimes 90% show up, sometimes 10% show up). I did not make a restrictive waitlist. This is very lax and free, I'll try and bring tunes. Others are bringing refreshments and other sporty things, my advice is to show up without expectations and I'll do my best to ensure you have a good time.

    Do you have to know what you're doing? Haven't played in years but have an idea on how to play

    May 28, 2014

    • Marc

      you absolutely do not need to know what you're doing, and it's kind of more fun if you don't

      2 · May 30, 2014

  • John N.

    As long as there refreshments and snacks, Im in. I can bring some chips and peach schnapps and have an eatup while I get my exercise

    Yay! So glad we're doing this again!
