I had a conflict on Sunday, but I may be able to attend Saturday or
Two quick news notes (and a
question): 1. Our pal Brian noticed that the forecast for Sunday is
sunny and hot, topping off at 93, and he suggests we move this
week's vball Meetup to Saturday instead, when the high will be only
... 79-84, depending on which forecaster you believe.Â
Monday would be another option -- high temps low 80s, and "more
clouds than sun with a few showers and storms."Â So ...
what do you guys think about this?Â If you intended to
play this weekend, please email me ([address removed]) tonight or
tomorrow and let me know your preferences.Â (And please
remember to RSVP at our Meetup site.) 2. I'm going to miss this week
-- heading out of town to hang with some old college friends at a
cottage on Green Bay.Â So a couple people should bring
their own volleyballs this week, since mine won't be there. Â

A networking resource for Madison-area volleyball players -- a place where we can share information about good places to play and upcoming tournaments in the area, organize for regular open vball groups, find teammates and subs for league and tournament teams, etc. Come play with us and make new vball friends.
Oct-April (indoor season): We don't own a building, so we just play with other existing groups in the area. Several area rec departments offer coed-open groups and/or competitive leagues in school gyms. See our PDF at http://files.meetup.com/3785372/VB%20Venues... for a partial list of popular groups in the area.
May-Sept (outdoor season): We organize weekly open coed v-ball gigs on outdoor sand courts in the Madison area. These are just friendly pick-up games, free to all. See the Meetup announcements/invitations for details.
About "Intermediate" Level Volleyball: Most of the groups we organize are for intermediate-level (and higher) vb players. We also have some groups that welcome rec-level players, and we can easily organize more if people will step up to lead/host them.Different people have different standards for intermediate play. For our purposes, "intermediate" means you play a team-oriented (three hits) game, and are sufficiently skilled to be able to pass and set successfully more often than not. That's all we ask.
ABOUT THE RSVPs:RSVP counts here are poor indicators of actual attendance, which is almost always higher than our RSVPs suggest, so don't let a low number scare you away. On the other hand, if you do expect to play, your RSVP will probably encourage others to join us.
