Beach Volleyball in Vegas?

This summer we have gone to see the AVP Beach Volleyball tour down in California but last weekend they had an all star tournament in Las Vegas, and Chad decided to sign us up as volunteers. So we headed up there last Thursday and spent Friday and Saturday at the event. We were there for 12 hrs one of the days and it was so hot. I have decided beach vball is better at the beach! They hauled in a TON of sand and had their whole set up in the parking lot at the Mandalay Bay. We got to hand the balls to the players during the game, which doesn't sound too cool but it was because we were had the best seats for the games. This tournament had all the best players which made it really fun to watch.


Here is Chad volunteering at one of the games, the morning games were pretty empty since it was in Vegas.

Chad is congragulating Phil Dalhausser (Olympic Gold Medalist) after one of his wins.

Our cute matching volunteer shirts! They got is in free though for every game and a free lunch each day.

After our long day we went to the Rainforest Cafe for some dinner, but not till 11:30 at night.
The pool was a lot of fun, there was a lazy river and a wave pool.
Chad loved laying in the innertube and discreetly poured water on the passerbys.
