CDM Beach Volleyball at Sunset
Our 10 year tradition, and counting….. Join us for some fun beach volleyball games. The best way to end your weekend, and get prepared for Monday, back to work! Enjoy the ocean breeze, the scenery, sound of the waves, and the happy people around. We start early afternoon, and play till sunset, or until all cry uncle! and that should leave enough time after the game for those who want to enjoy a bite and a drink nearby. Those with limited experience are welcome, but are expected to try and improve their game. Our experience shows that after a few sessions, they do. Notes and suggestions: • Please try to RSVP by Saturday EOD. Also, your friends count on the number of players signed up, so don't be a flake, or I'll tell mom on you. • Competition is encouraged, while all get to participate and play their position. Our approach is one of positive encouragement for improvement, and avoiding negative criticisms or complaints. • You might consider a beach chair, an umbrella, socks... to make yourself comfortable. • If you arrive early and see a court available, own it! All you need is a ball or lines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceau-600wME Parking: Parking up the hill is FREE. Parking near the beach is metered. ARRIVE EARLY in summer. It may take a little time to find a parking spot. Court: Our court lines are ORANGE or YELLOW. We also hang an ugly GREEN men's tie from the net. There is no guarantee that we can get a court, but we always have. Most often, one of the southside courts. If not, walk north and CHECK other courts (towards the jetty), as shown in the map below. Down Memory Lane Last summer, we saw some big waves during our games. This was July 7, 2014. It looked like a tsunami. All our courts were flooded. We had our bags against the bushes, and a few times had to pick them up as the waves went past the bushes and into the drive way behind. You can see more pictures in the photo album. surreal!
