Hey Players! Planning for our 2016 event is well underway, so while you’re warming up for this year’s event, take a look at what we have on offer this year! To keep them going from dawn to dusk all registered participants at HOPE Volleyball SummerFest will receive a delicious BBQ lunch prepared by Grill Master. Each member of your team (maximum of 10 people) will be given: a bag of chips and one of the following items hot off the BBQ: hot dog, hamburger, veggie burger and for Corporate teams, also sausage. To facilitate everyone getting their lunches quickly and to shorten line-ups, team captains will be asked to coordinate food choices and pick up the lunch for the entire team (10 maximum) at the same time in boxes provided by Grill Master. Check for the Team Food Pick Up Order Form in your team registration kit (available Monday July 11 or Tuesday July 12 at our HOPE Office (739A Ridgewood Avenue) or for Corporate teams at the HOPE Corporate Party on Monday July 11 (location to be confirmed) – and make sure to consult with your team on their preferences. Please present your order form to the food volunteers at the Lunch Pick Up tent. Lunches will be served during three designated pick-up times: 11 am to 12 pm, 12 pm to 1 pm, and 1 pm to 2 pm. Please pick up your team lunches during your assigned time indicated on the lunch order form in order to avoid long line-ups. Please Note: due to limited quantities in some food items, we cannot guarantee availability of your food choice and substitutions may be made. For non-registered spectators and participants, there are a variety of food vendors onsite to serve your needs.
BE SURE TO BRING YOUR WATER BOTTLES
We encourage attendees and players to bring refillable water bottles as there will be water refill stations at the event! The refill stations are free to use and helps minimize event waste. This year, with the help of AQUAHAULICS INC. , we will be eliminating 24,000 plastic water bottles from our site! Help us keep Mooney’s Bay a beautiful place for all!
