Good for you girls. I coached volleyball for 4 years and was an official ref in Ontario. Played in Europe and Ontario. I miss it SO much!

I'm so glad you guys got something going. I had been talking about doing it here for the longest time but never had/have the time to take the time to set it up.

and ashoor....volleyball first. Short pants second. lol gawad

I'm gonna do my best to come into town for the finals.  Looking forward to it for sure.  And if I'm willing to drive four and a half hours to come cheer on the ladies, the rest of the Chicago folks better be there cheering too.

I believe the finals are on a weekday.  April 28th last time I checked.

Are you really heading that way Jon?  AVN gathering in Chicago!  I'll bring the whisky.

Middle of the week?  That's tough.  Let's reschedule an unofficial final on the beach for the first weekend of May.

That was a great game.  Team Ur won the championship.  The awards banquet the next night was awesome too.  They brought in a guest from Boston, Elsie Donabed, who was the first Assyrian women's volleyball captain in Iraq. (I think I got that right)  She was amazing and gave a speech about starting an Assyrian girls team back home.

I'll have some pics to post as soon as I get them off my camera.
