Mud Volleyball [SIV39]



8/5/07: On August 5th, teams gathered from all over Vermont on a muddy field in Essex for a day of mud volleyball. It was the 18th Annual Mud Volleyball Tournament and the proceeds benefited The Epilepsy Foundation of VT.

The Town of Essex provided the field and the firetrucks which poured over 160,000 gallons of water into the parched earth. The mud was fragrant and spiced with manure. Frogs kept the volleyball players company in the pits.

Did you know that mud can creep into your most intimate crevices and days after the event, the pesky substance continues to seep out slowly? Eek.

Music: Lowell Thompson, "Let Go"

Location: Essex Vermont
