Results and Next Event: Beach Volleyball - Desert Inside

The initial doubles event was a great success! We had ten (actually, 9 1/2) teams after a couple of injuries and last minute dropouts. By actually starting play at 8:30, we managed to finish pool play by 10:00 AM. This left enough time to run full matches all the way through the winners bracket, and a game to 25 through the losers. We finished just before our 4:00 deadline. There were many good matches and great games. Kind of exciting for folks to be playing competitive at this time of the year. Here are the results from the event:
1) Loric Box/ Adam Rubel ($40, pair of Plastic Hats thanks to Sonny) 2) Matt Valencia/ Matt Gordon ($30) 3) Jeff Poole/ Tony Schimkus 4) Ricardo Sanchez/ Doug Williams 5) Larry Cornwell/ Desi Vigil 5) Kameron Cheney 7) Shane/ Sonny 7) Brian/ Eddie 9) Harris/ Eesah 9) Paul Sanchez/ Manny Padilla
