2013 MotherLode Wrap-Up!


What a weekend!  The new Men’s 55’s and Women’s 45’s divisions were a “hit”.  As well, the “Festival” divisions were well received (players enjoyed the chance to, still, be able to play with the chance to win a “Division”).

Weather was, pretty much, a non-factor; although we did have to suspend play on the grass on Friday afternoon.  However, play-offs were held for the Friday divisions on Saturday morning and we were “all caught up” with Saturday’s “main draw” play by Saturday afternoon.  The weekend was warm and Monday’s final day on Labor Day was spectacular – hot, sunny, with a great crowd all day long.  The Men’s and Women’s A, BB, and B divisions were more than competitive as every divisional finals, excepting one, went to third game tie-breakers.

The Men’s Open saw the Bomgren brothers win for the second consecutive year.  And, the venerable Traci Walsh, from Woods Cross, Utah, who has been a perennial finisher for the last few years; finally broke into the Winners Circle as she, and Angela Peterson, from Lindon, Utah, defeated a strong up-and-coming team from Denver, Mallory Deneen and Anna Lehne.

As well, The MotherLode Volleyball Classic welcomed a new Presenting Sponsor, Coldwell Banker Mason Morse real estate – a local Aspen firm that has been operating in the Roaring Fork Valley for many years.

Oh.  Yeah.  It was a great weekend for grassroots tournament Producers to get together as Tom Galecke (Waupaca Boat Ride), Mike Manczuk (Wasatch Beach Volleyball) and Seth and Ken Kaas (Pottstown Rumble) were in attendance.

All-in-all, just another great MotherLode weekend.  Look for more (and, even better?) things to occur at the 42nd Annual MotherLode Volleyball Classic.
