This Week's Sunday Intermediate VB? - Is anyone else planning to play with the Cole Beach intermediate Sunday group this week? As of 8:30am this morning our RSVPs add up to ... one (me), but our Sundays have usually been a thriving group.  I know that most people who play usually Bob M. Aug 24, 2013 8:33 AM
A Few Important Notes About Our VB Group - Apparently our Thurs-night group has died, and this has generated a few comments and questions on tonight's Meetup.  But I think the issues we've run into this year affect our group as a whole, so I'm sharing this reply with our group as a whole.  Ou Bob M.

Thurs-Night V-Ball - The Olbrich Park groups (Mondays and Thursdays) are filled to capacity, actually a little beyond capacity, so have asked that we discontinue listing their groups on our Meetup site.  I've taken down their remaining scheduled Meetup listings here, but Bob M. Aug 11, 2013 4:29 PM
Reminder: This Week's Sunday Intermed VB is 4pm, not 2pm - Just a friendly reminder to all that we are giving up "our" Cole Beach courts this Sunday for the UW cardio benefit tournament, so our regular weekly group will start at 4pm rather than 2pm.   Bob M. Aug 8, 2013 7:07 AM
Thurs Eve Picnic Point V-Ball CANCELLED FOR THE SEASON - Can't get enough people to play, so ... we're giving up on this location. The Olbrich Park Thurs-night group remains open for business, but note that the Olbrich group requires solid intermediate-level skills.   Bob M. Jul 10, 2013 11:04 PM
Need a Guy for Waupaca Boatride 3x3 Men's Tourney Saturday - Got this email from a guy in the Twin Cities, and am just passing it along here for anyone who might be interested: I had a last minute cancellation, so I need another guy for the Waupaca Boatride Tournament in Oshkosh Bob M.

Indoor V-Ball After Labor Day - I'm looking into renting an indoor court (or two) for our group to have weekly coed intermediate-level v-ball when the weather drives us indoors this fall.  The games would be organized the same way we run our outdoor groups now:  form different team Bob M.

Meetup location changed: Intermediate Sand Volleyball -- moving to Cole Beach - We're moving tonight's Picnic Point Intermediate Coed Open group to the Cole Beach (Observatory Dr) courts, due to soggy courts at Picnic Point.  Note that UW's Lot 36 (across the street from Cole Beach) does require a permit on weekday evenings, but Bob M.
