The public is invited to enjoy the friendly competition at the Mission Lions Club Mud Volleyball Tournament Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing throughout the day. The event, being held at 4 3/4 Mile North Conway, will have a number of food booths provided by local non-profit organizations.
Leading off the tournament is a challenge match between the Mission Fire Department and the Mission Police Department. Over 35 teams have registered for a muddy good time.
Some of the food booth organizations and food items include VMHS Booster Club—hot dogs, nachos, hot Cheetos with cheese and Frito pies; Boy Scout Troop 83/Venture Troop 83—funnel cakes, spiral potatoes and snow cones; Sharyland Leo Club—soft drinks and bottled water; Mission Police Academy—hamburgers with all the trimmings; and Alton Fire Department—fajita, chicken and sausage tacos. Others will offer fruit cups, chamoy apples, kettle corn, tostados, pizza and cotton candy. For those over 21, there will be a beer garden. All profits go to charities and non-profits.
Event organizer Rosie Sterling said, “The City of Alton has gone all out to help us put on the community’s first annual Mud Volleyball Tournament, preparing eight mud pits for us and helping out in many other ways.” She invites the public to come out and cheer for their favorite teams and have a good time.
