Memphicago Kick Volley Challenge 1

Salem, IL became Memphicago, which became Memphicagorleans with the addition of Rob Creel, who was in town for a wedding and had a day to kill. I'd like to thank Rob for seeing the event on the web and having the audacity to give me a call. He filled out the posse nicely giving us an even 8 players.

The day was perfect as Big Ben and the Hammer made the trip up from Memphis to meet myself, Cory, Tommy, and Zeke from Chicago. Also present was the already mentioned New Orleans native, and Mikey Bellman, the High Planes Breaker. There were a few singles matches to start the day, but for the most part it was doubles net all day with different partners for almost every match.

Like Zeke said, "This was SOOO worth the drive."

Inner Rectangle Blog Publishing

Just wanted to take a minute and address all the contributors of the Inner Rectangle footbag net blog. I have signed up the following blog authors and admins to have this blog's posts emailed directly to your addresses whenever any of us publishes. This includes you: Zeke, Mike B., Carrie C., Yevez, PT & Scot. The idea here is we want you all to contribute more posting content to the Inner Rectangle. So when you want to rant about how you spiked, got hurt, did well or got killed, take a minute and visit the Inner Rectangle blog and tell us all about it! Also if you for some reason do not want the blog posts emailed directly to you, let me know.

Memphicago is ON!

The first-ever Memphicago Kick Volley Challenge will be taking place this Sunday, August 17th, in Salem, Illinois. We've been talking about this idea for almost a year, and now it's actually going to happen!

The idea behind Memphicago is that the boys from Memphis Footworks will get up at 6:00 AM and begin driving North. At the same time, CLCK will fill a car and start heading South. We'll meet in the middle, play net for a few hours, get a good meal and make the drive back home. We will meet at Bryan Memorial Park at 10:30 AM. Word on the street is that there should be ample space there to play, and if not, there is a high school nearby. We're hoping to make this a new tradition: come out and be a part of it!

Love is in the Air

Congratulations to Bryan, who married the love of his life, Bonnie, last weekend in a beautiful ceremony just outside of Galena, IL. Love is in the air all around as we also send out congratulations (early) to Mikey Bellman, who is getting married in a couple of weeks in southern Illinois, and also to Tommy Whitworth, who just got engaged a couple of weeks ago.

What's up Zeke?

The BigBellToe Is Alive!

Nice Try Mike
Could it be? I could be wrong but is "Mikey" really Mike Bellman? If so, great to see that you have joined us Mike B! Miss your ass a ton and hope the wedding goes well in September! We really missed you a ton for years and glad to see your still kickin'. It was great to see the re-emergence of the bigbelltoe at the Windy City Cup too!
