Saturday, 25 October 2014 – "Smashed Pumkin Tournament"
with sobriety (level) divisions. $5 Entry Fee!!
Costumes Recommended but not Required. But, there is a catch. If you do not wear a costume you MUST provide alcohol to share (Thus the name Smashed). And there is more. "Smashed Pumpkin" T shirts will be available for $10. We ain't making money on these shirts (insert guilt complex here – donate more).
Start time set for noon (note: there is no Youth volleyball so no ban on drinking). Drinks Up, I mean Nets Up at 11:00am.
Tournaments are intended to start at High Noon.
(A more complete description of tournament formats can be found here.)
Arrive at 11:30am or so to allow us to get a head count (call ahead if need be); play will begin at noon assuming you ALL get there no later than 11:50am so we can get an accurate count! $5 suggested donation. At the conclusion of the tournament nets will be open for free play, all skill levels welcome.
Note: Mid-City Youth Volleyball (MCYV) League plays from 9:30 to 11:30. Please leave all adult beverages in your car until all youth participants have left the field. This is not a request. Thank You for your cooperation. Youth Volleyball is on break.
Location: MCVG plays on the grassy banks at the foot of Bayou St John, across the street from the Mid-City post office, Bayou Bicycles, Fetch Mid-City and Armstrong Electric Supply, in sight of the American Can Company and within easy walking distance of Parkway Bakery and Tavern. That would be on Jefferson Davis Parkway at the intersection of Toulouse, for those of you that need to use GPS to find us.
Smashed Pumkin Tournament:
Saturday, 25 October 2014! Cost – $5 That's right we heard you last year $5. But, there is a catch. If you do not wear a costume you MUST provide alcohol to share (Thus the name Smashed). And there is more. T shirts with the Skeleton Volleyball (the original version) will be available for $10 (and no they will not be black or orange this year). Start time still at noon (note: there is no Youth volleyball so no ban on drinking).
Get your costume on! But a shirt! Get Smashed on the Bayou!
Tuesday Eve Volleyball:
Only 2 weeks left! Early Bird Net up at 4pn! DST ends Nov. 2 so Oct 28, 2014 will be the last Tuesday Night till March 2015, We play at our usual location along Bayou St John 5:00pmish, and we'll play 'til dark, then we will retire to a local establishment for libations. We are asking for a $5.00 donation from all players. We are running our Speed Format Doubles and Quads Tournaments, and there will be a net for pick-up play. This is a great way to play at a level comforatble to you, meet the other players, and have fun. We will try to start the tournaments by 6pm. Beginners and Novices can ask Thomas Gorman and Peter Hickman about drills prior to play (about 15-30 minutes), we are happy to oblige. See you Tuesdays.
Inclement Weather? No such thing. Use your own judgement to play or not, but very rarely has Tuesday night been called off due to weather. Chances are a few of us will be out there.

The Mid-City Volleyball Group (MCVG) is a collection of people from across the city who are passionate about playing and promoting outdoor volleyball. We regularly set up portable courts along Bayou St John across from the Mid-City post office for clinics, tournaments and pick-up games. We are equal-opportunity fun-seekers who wish to share our love of the game, so we invite players of all skill levels to join us. Our ultimate goal is to build and operate a modest sand volleyball venue in Mid-City that will offer beginning and advanced level clinics, tournaments and league play.
MCVG currently offers the following activities:
- Saturday noon “speed” tournament for adults or advanced juniors; $5.00/player (See above for start time).
- Saturday afternoon pick-up volleyball for all skill levels following the weekly "speed" tournament; free.
- Tuesday night volleyball.
Mid-City Youth Volleyball, MCVG's sister organization, offers the following activities:
- Junior League for youths 10-17
- Mini-Volleyball, ages 6-9ish
