Nowell and the Dallas big boys have challenged our Austin squad to a weekend at their place in Prosper, Texas.
http://www.watervolleyball.net/phpBB/vi ... 6467#16467
The pool is at a private residence. Start times are 1:30 on Saturday and 12:30 on Sunday.
After the to-be-expected AWVP drama, we now have a ton of solid commitments. So many people in fact that we're gonna have two squads.
A few words from Nowell:
"12 traveling players would create a weekend of epic proportions.
We will make it work.
Just be flexible as to exactly how we make it work.
B/c I’ll be cutting certain folks/teams on our end to accommodate.
Sat will likely be your two teams and just one of ours.
15 point games
Winning team gets to stay in the pool.
If they win 3 straight, they sit out 1 game.
Sunday will likely be two of ours and two of yours, so likely 4 games per team for the day. With more down time.
I’ll come up with a 4-team match play format that works best. Maybe games to 11, Eg,
Team a1 plays d1.
Team a2 plays d2.
REPEAT once more.
Do the team’s have names?
I’ll prepare a roster. To get some hype going
King Marco – Lefty, all rounder, co-captain
Nick the Stick – Stud athlete, lefty
Pep – the big man, righty
Wader - gentle giant
Winkler – sand baller, server/blocker
Nowell – play maker, coach, captain
Addison 25 mins away from prosper
Plano 20 mins
Frisco 15 mins
Addison lots of bars.
Plano some bars.
Frisco few bars.
Lots of $100/night hotel options in all 3 towns btw Dallas and Prosper."

This is awesome. We need to make it work as well. We owe Dallas a roster as soon as we can come up with it. I believe that requires a council meeting.
Many of you won't get the analogy. For those who did our first road trip ever, it should be quite familar...

I might have spoken too soon. We might already be full. It is difficult organizing this many people and there are a couple people who I'm not sure if they are in or not.

Monkey #2, we are indeed maxed out. We have 12 confirmed for the road trip.

Wow. What a weekend. This Dallas crew is very very good.
There are photos and game film. What a venue.
Basically, they kicked our ass on Saturday.
Sunday, we fought back and won a few. However the Dallas crew were the dominant players overall.
Our search for intelligent life in the universe has indeed found intelligent life.
First time we've played in the backyard of a mansion.
