Congrat’s Springdale’s Volleywood- 2015 Growler Champions!

Congrat’s Springdale’s Volleywood- 2015 Growler Champions!

 

They beat Lake Park’s Air Vectors in the Semi- finals, then barely got past Springdale’s newest team, $et for Life, in the final matchup that went 23-21.  InGrowler tradition, the championship winners each win a Growler filled with their favorite Lynnwood Brewing Concern beer.
$et for Life, “The next generation young studs of Springdale”,  had a tough road to bet the past two year’s Growler Champions Seven Oak’s Kiss My Ace and N. Raleigh’s Six Pack Attack, only to be matched up against the now 3 time Growler Champion Volleywood in the finals.
St Baldricks- It was a big night with over $6,500 brought in through admissions, SB donations and raffle.  Let’s keep the momentum going.  We are currently over $38 K on the SB site.  Our projected Profits should produce a check for at least $10 K to St Baldrick’s, so we will far exceed $50,000 this year.   Thank you for to everyone that contributed this year.
GROWLeadERship Team-  These guys have been a tremendous relief for me this year.   A Big thanks to everyone on this page >>  http://growlervolleyball.com/contact-us/  If you would like to take on a larger role next year, please email me.  We still need more people that will take ownership in managing parts of the Growler.  We could use twice as many as we have now.
I also want to thank all our Volunteers, especially those that were out every Growler to help before, during and after the events.
Please share your Growler Photos on Facebook  http://growlervolleyball.com/contact-us/  Thank you Stew and Erin for sharing some great memories.
thanks,
Mark Williams

2015 Growler Schedule is OUT

The 32 team field is set.  Congratulations to Dan Schaefer and the SARC- Set for Life team for earning the last slot in the Growler this year.  They came in with a strong pledge of $1700.
The SCHEDULE IS OUT-  I’ve slotted all 32 teams and set up the schedule.
I’ve tried to mix up the brackets so you’re matched up against some different teams than you had last year.  However since you’re set up in Divisions, you’ll also see many of the same teams that remained in your division.  Each of the 4 divisions should be very competitive and I expect some close games.
Please double check to see if there are any errors. (Example: 2 games at the same time or 3 back to back games, incorrect # of games, etc..)  You should have a total of 11 games (3 games on night 1, and 4 games on nights 2 and 3).
Volunteer-  The Growler takes enormous effort and man hours.  This year, there is a minimum expectation that every team will help out.  Cristine Allison and Casey Rainey are our Volunteer Coordinators  and will manage our our volunteer duties and resources.  They’ve created an easy way for you to sign up.  http://growlervolleyball.com/volunteer/    We can use help from players, family and friends.   First opportunity will be Set Up Sat. July 25th
Please contact them if you have questions.

Jockeying for Final Night Seedings

Everyone will get to play the final night, but you may want to check out the brackets to see where you could potentially be seeded.   The top 7 teams will receive a bye for the first round.  Who is dangerous that you may want to avoid?   If you are 20-23 you can avoid the top 3 teams in the first couple of rounds and potentially be that Cinderella team.   A lot will be determined as we go into the 3rd week of round robin play.  Here is the latest Final Night Championship schedule.
