Thursday Volleyball Update!


10:00 pm

Hey ho sports fans! We are looking good for the tournament! Our BTC [Beginning Teacher Committee] Chair Helena Suite will arrive early at PJ2with Sparky Stelmacovich and Claudio Chichiarelli to make sure everything is set up and ready to go for our 4pm start time. Our committee members will arrive as they get out of school. Any extra help is much appreciated, please see the BTC there before the games!

We've got 2 referees confirmed with 2 more strong maybes. Now I know why everyone is so thankful for our volunteer referees! The Competition League can get pretty tight, so please let's respect the referees calls and make sure we first and foremost just enjoy the good sport and comradeship of the games with our fellow teachers. I am still working on getting plenty of referees, so please contact me asap if you can help out! Whew!

I picked up the water bottles, granola bars and fruit snacks for during the game tonight. The drink tickets too. We will set up the tournament schedule [Round Robin] on bristol board outside the gym. We would appreciate the help of anyone who's expert at this in case we have to make any last minute changes!

Some schools don't have a full team, so we've asked any individual players to come early, and we will see what we can do. Better a few too many than a few short, and at the very least, if you are so inclined you could perhaps play relief on another team. Please see us before the games begin.

We've got two custom made trophies, about a foot high, one for each league, and a bunch of medallions too, for all our outstanding athletes. It should be fun, so please show up by 4pm, and let the games begin!

Photos will follow on my slide show in the top left screen. When you click on them it takes you to Flickr where the enlargements are. Kindly forward any you take of your team etc. too! I will start posting them this weekend, so please check back here later.

Please stay tuned for any further pre game updates. There is a lot more info that follows below. I have provided a map box in the left hand column, to help you find your way to JP2. Scroll down and you will see it....

11:00 am:

Our BTC is busy getting the trophies and medallions for tomorrow's tournament starting at 4pm. The gyms will be setup in advance but we are still short one or two referees!!! You need to be tough nosed but fair, the competition can get pretty rough. If you can help out or know anyone else who can please email me asap!

We are planning on a Round Robin, best 2 out of 3. I have one team cancellation. If your school does not have a team please come anyway, see us at the registration desk, and I'm sure we can plug you in anyway. Some teams always show up short or need a substitute and so on. The more the merrier.

We ask everyone to sign in, personally, at the front table by the gym, so we have an accurate count for all the teams etc. Guests are asked to do so too. We will use these lists for drink tickets afterwards, so please sign in.

More updates to follow over the next 24 hours and see below:
