Last Chance to Reserve Your Seat For RBVL Dinner

The Rockaway Beach Volleyball League players enjoyed themselves at last year's gathering at the Beach Club. 
The Rockaway Beach Volleyball League players enjoyed themselves at last year's gathering at the Beach Club. The Rockaway Beach Volleyball League will celebrate the completion of their 17th season at a gala awards dinner on Friday, September 15 at the Beach Club on 116th Street. Players love to visit the Beach Club, which has been a long-time sponsor of the RBVL, and a good time is predicted for all attendees. A great party band, Souled Out, will provide live music. Of course, you will provide the dancing. Admission is $70 and will include a buffet dinner as well as an open bar.

The previous record for an RBVL awards dinner was 225 and it may be shattered this year as nearly 180 people have already responded, paid for their tickets and formed tables. This is your last chance to get a ticket. If you haven't done so already, please call Rocky at 718-338-3951, Denise at 347-866-4570 or Bugsy at 347-413-3563 to make your reservation. Even better, drop your cash or check off at Bugsy's house. Money talks! We are right near capacity but the Beach Club is working with us to clear up a little more room for the last few people. Rumors abound that this might be your last chance to party at the Beach Club as we have known it through the years, so don't miss out.

Championship sweatshirts will be given out to the 6 division champs, Freedhand's Court Champs, Killa Hills, Connolly's, Coppersmiths, Sand Spikers and Suns of Beaches and some surprise awards will almost certainly follow. We're even using "Spell-check" this year to make sure all of the names are spelled correctly. Will John Sica produce and unveil another MTV award winning music video? Only the shadow knows.

Bring your dancing shoes and dress any way that makes you feel comfortable. Last year the fashion ranged from casual beach to elegant chic. Several outstanding Hawaiian shirts showed up as well as some classy dresses and you can expect more of the same this year. Shorts or tuxedos, slacks or dresses - it's all good. Right, Murph? But please, no horizontal stripes!

After the big dinner-dance you can take six months off and not think about volleyball until February, when the planning begins for 2007. We hope to see all 44 teams back for another go at this sport we love so much. The games are over but summer is not, so we'll still see you on the beach as long as the weather stays nice.
