Monsoon Madness

Photobucket

A couple of weekends ago, our town hosted it's summer event called Monsoon Madness and mud happens to be a focal point at this event. The picture above is Greg with our friends and their mud volleyball team.

There were 2 volleyball courts and 16 teams played in a bracketed tournament. Notice the water spray on the pole, this is how they kept the courts muddy.

Here's Greg on the right side of the net...

My role was team photographer, which kept me out of the mud...until Adam took a dive to save a ball...

..and I happened to be right there, this picture doesn't do the damage justice.

The mud on me was minor though, heres Coach Randi laying in the mud on the left.

Here's the line for that mud slide and the mud pit that you land in. The little girl sticking her face in this cesspool of mud is so disturbing to me.

There were activities for kids that did not involve mud, thank God.

But what's the best way to stay cool? It's simple. Snow Cones!

And my favorite shot of the day...these size 7's.

  1. That is an AWESOME shot of Greg at the net! Love the mud splashing up under their feet. And the girl putting her face in the nastiness is SO disturbing. Agreed.

  2. And before that girl buried her head in the nastiness, she actually asked her mother who was standing nearby if she could put her face in the water, the mother said "Yeah". EWWWWW!!!
