Presented by American Electric Power, Beulah Park, George J. Igel & Co. and 99.7 The Blitz, MUD is the Epilepsy Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year. The down-and-dirty tournament has acquired some loyal players who give it their all for the team. Keep your eyes open for a few of the following techniques:
· The Dirty Dive: The body goes airborne before going “splat” into the nasty brown water.
· The Cruddy Collapse: From a low defensive position, a player collapses into the nasty brown water in order to make a last-second move to play the ball.
· The Appalling Pancake: Defensive players spread their fingers firmly on the ground (or, in this case, in the nasty brown water) to save a ball from hitting the ground.
· The Shoulder or Barrel Roll: This involves the player giving it all they’ve got, using their momentum to roll their body and regain their balance to keep the ball in play. Rolling is pretty safe as players don’t hit the hard ground, just—you guessed it—some nasty brown water.
There is still plenty of time to register your team for play. A team consists of eight to 12 people; the cost per team is $300. Volunteers and referees are also needed—and NO experience is necessary. Volunteers receive lunch, beverages and a Mud Volleyball T-shirt.
Finally, players may not “take home the gold,” but there are some nice trophies and prizes worthy of display. To get in on the action, go to www.epilepsy-ohio.org” or contact Heidi Moss at 614-652-9925. Gates open at 9 a.m. and awards are presented by 6 p.m.
