Final Rockaway Beach Volleyball League Meeting Scheduled April 26
In preparation for the volleyball season, a critical date is fast approaching. The final RBVL pre-season meeting will be held on Wednesday, 4/26 at 8:00 PM at the Kerry Hills Pub. Captains are required to bring the balance of their league fee and their uniform orders. Rosters should be submitted as well.
If a captain is unable to attend he must send a representative (and the money) in his place. The forms are now available on our website, whose address has been simplified to www.rbvl. com. The general feedback on the 2005 season has been very positive and the league is grateful for everyone's input. Feel free to attend the meeting and to voice any of your personal likes and dislikes. We are always striving for improvement.
All but a handful of last year's squads have paid deposits to insure their place for 2006. Additionally, several new teams have been placed on a waiting list to fill any unclaimed spots.
Early projections call for 6 different divisions with varying levels of skill.
We asked the captains to do us a big favor by e-mailing your vital information (name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, team name) and the information for an alternate (or two) from your team.
We asked you to send it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. You have been very bad boys and girls as Joe has only received two e-mails to date. Thanks, Last Call and Rat Pack! We're looking to improve the speed and accuracy of our announcements so please help us out.
Once again we remind you to mark a few special dates on your calendars. Wednesday, 5/24 will be our first night of volleyball at the beach. It will be a practice night for all and uniforms and schedules will be given out at that time. Hopefully it won't rain for the fourth straight year. Wednesday, 5/31 will be opening day and play will continue every Wednesday until 8/12. On Saturday, 8/13 the league championships will be played at Riis Park during the day - keep your schedules clear. Last year's extravaganza was co-sponsored by Lipton and Gateway NPS and it was a blast!
It's not too early to save the date of the league awards dinner, which will be held at the Beach Club on Friday night, 9/15 (Will this be the last party ever there?). We don't want to hear you couldn't make it because you had a prior engagement, like your sister's or mother-in-law's boyfriend was coming over to watch "Wheel of Fortune" with you that night. Mark your calendar, that's an order!
It will only be a short few weeks before opening day arrives and there is still much to be done beforehand. If you have any questions before the meeting please call Patty Moule at 917-566-2809 (Call between 10 AM and 9 PM.).
