Stormy weather and 50 mph winds don’t dampen tourney success

“A lot of work goes into organizing this, but the day of the event it is all worth it.” Volley for Mitchell organizer Pete MacGregor said the four-on-four sandy volleyball tournament is a blast and for a great cause. In its third year this year the event raised $8,000 for Parent Project MD in cooperation with Mitchell’s Run Thru Rockford.

MacGregor said the idea came up while he and the Peterson family were hanging out by a backyard campfire. “It’ a way to be involved if you aren’t a runner or walker,” MacGregor said.

VolleyMitchell2This year’s event was Saturday, August 8, a rainy day. Sandy Peterson, Mitchell’s mother, praised participants. “It was pouring rain at 8 a.m. and of 50 teams, only one didn’t show up,” she said. “It was a great turnout. We were very lucky to have Score let us take over that part of their business. They were very generous,” Peterson said. Co-chairs of the event are Bill Jackson and Jeff Hartnagel.
