    September 12, 2013

    • David S

      No need to process any refund for me - put it toward the fundraising please

      1 · September 12, 2013

  • David S

    Sorry all, switched my weekend so was free for Saturday and now too late for me to swap to Sunday - so my apologies that I can't be there :-( I'll be missing Volleyball AND cakes!! :-(( Hope it's a great day for everyone

    September 12, 2013

  • Johanna

    We have a very bad weather forecast by Saturday we will change for Sunday 15 or Sunday 22 I will may the call tomorrow.

    3 · September 11, 2013

    • Keerthi

      I may have to skip it.. if the date is moved.. as I am travelling on 15th for 5 weeks :(

      September 12, 2013

    • Gerardo

      Is it possible to try to find another court? For me its ok sunday 15th (forecast seems ok that day) but is understandable if other people may not agree with it. But again i think the 21 would be a risk since weather is not gonna become any better as the times goes by.
      Ive been looking for other places, theres one sport centre close to marylebone station but it has just one volleyball court. Lets hope weather gets better. Here is a list of centres maybe one has availability: http://www.openplay.c...­

  • Mark

    I'll be coming in my van so I'm happy to bring stuff. I can buy beer/ soft drinks. Just let me know what is required: which drinks, how much, bottles or cans etc. There is a Majestic and a Tesco local to me, and most other off licences. Any research on cheap deals gladly received!
    Do you have cool boxes? I presume the ice is for cooling the drinks? I have a number of plastic crates we could use if needed. I can cool a fridge load of beer but no more. I have freezer room for about 8-10 bags of ice- I'll have to get it before Saturday.

    September 9, 2013

  • Mark

    Just to clarify: I am trained in shiatsu (acu-pressure) and will be giving back, neck, arm and shoulder treatments.

    Are we hiring the whole space w. 4 courts or just 1 court for 7 hours? Can we invite more people if 4 courts?
    Would be better to stagger the times if 1 court for 25 players to avoid people waiting around.

    I can help w. masssage (Hot stones, Thai, Sports, Swedish), manicure (w. nail art designs) and Henna temp. tattoos.

    How do we post activities / suggestions on Meet Up?
    1. Crystal Palace Volleyball Festival
    I plan to go on Sun 8/9 @ 3pm.

      There are 4 courts. How about having 2 courts w. 2v2 or certain time slots say 11am - 2pm 2v2s, 2-6pm non beach VB group sizes. 1 court for drills.

      September 1, 2013

    Cerus t-Shirts. We will be selling Cerus T-shirts on the day, if you want one let me know your size ( leave it as a comment) depending on how many order costs are about 10-12 pounds.
    Other questions:
    a. what is the format: we are waiting to see how many players participate we will make the call as to the size of the teams.
    b. Can I bring friends, family to watch: yes you can but visitors will pay a 5 pound entry fee on the day.
    c. Can i bring non cerus people to play: this is a cerus event, you can bring a maximum of one non cerus friend to play on the day. That member cannot be somepne previously expelled from cerus.
    d. I want to help on the day what can i do? Just let me know in a comment we need as many hands as possible
