The 25th Glutton Mud Volleyball Tournament was a huge success. 48 teams played in the hot sun with 97°F temperatures to determine who would end up as the champions of the tournament this year. Nose First nosed out the second place team in the final game which ended at 8:25 pm, just as dusk was settling in. We couldn’t have played one more game without lights.
Final number aren’t in, but we did make over $1400 for the Evangelical Children’s Home with the Silent Auction.
