for three consecutive years i have traveled to new orleans for work.
there is a lot to squeeze in to any trip to NOLA, especially when my daylight hours are completely booked with meetings; but my volleyball outings will never be compromised in this great city. the facilities and people of the new orleans volleyball community are irresistable.
in the past three years i have gotten to know a number of the new orleans volleyballers, who fill me in on the happenings each time i am in town. and this past week, i was able to get sandy on two glorious evenings.
one evening was spent at coconut beach.
the weekend of may 21 – 24, for the first time in many years, the AVP tour will be coming to new orleans as a stop on their tour. coconut beach will be hosting the event and professional beach volleyball athletes will be flying in from around the nation.
i will not be able to compete in this event as i will be attending something far more important – my little brother’s graduation. but i wish all of those athletes luck and i will be cheering them on from a distance.
i will be back NOLA, and i look forward to getting sandy with you again on the next go-round.
