Well, it finally came and I got to go out and enjoy one of my favorite charity events held annually in Albuquerque, the 17th Annual Mudd Volleyball Tournament.
I’m not going to spend a lot of time going into specifics. The proceeds from the event go to the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation. Last year, $463,000 was raised. For more info on the Foundation, click here:
For more info on the tournament, you can check out their website at:
This is the first time I’ve gotten to go out and enjoy the tournament.
Even though it is a volleyball tournament, most are there for the chills, thrills and more important, the spills.
One thing is evident, smiles are everywhere. It is a great place to work on your shutter reflexes, but it’s not the most equipment friendly event in town.
If you’re going to take your camera, make sure it is treated for the elements as the mud and the dust will be everywhere.
The beauty of the event is there is no assigned pits for the spectators, you just wander to the pit of your choice and enjoy some great comedy, Er.. I mean, uh…. Volleyball!!!
I just threw a couple of my favorite pix on this page. I’m working on embedding a Flash Gallery with more pix.
