Going to Nationals!   Congratulations to NRV 15 Nationals!

Our Playing Schedule

Very unique scheduling! 
The top 4 seeds all start on court #1.   We were seeded #3!  That's pretty sweet!
Then, regardless of how these top 4 teams finish, they were the top seeds on their next nets.

So, there was a 4-team pool Saturday starting at 8am.
Then a 3-team pool starting Saturday, and finishing Sunday starting at 8am..
Then the single-elimination playoffs began Sunday 11am and were done at approximately 4pm. 

The see all the results and scores, scroll below the pictures. 


Round 1 results:   We lost to #1 seed Coastal 0-2.   Then we beat #2 seed Roanoke United 15 Red 2-0, and beat #4 seed Beach Elite 15 Black 2-1.  So we came off of net 1 in 2nd place. 

*  Round 2 results:  We beat #9 Williamsburg 15N 2-0.   That was it for day 1.    Day 2 below.  

*  Day 2:  Our 2nd pool ends with us beating #8 Peninsula Juniors 2-1. 

Now for the single-elimination playoffs. 

* Quarterfinals:   We beat #7 Beach Elite 15 Red 2-0.  
* Semifinals:  We beat #3 Beach Elite 15 Black 2-0.
* Finals:  We lose to #1 Coastal 25-22, 13-25, 12-15.....
but they choose to not attend Nationals, so the bid was given to us.  :)

Richmond Convention Center Rules

Typical Richmond Convention Center Rules.
No outside food is allowed in the RCC......
but some years they have allowed food inside.  Odd.

Coolers are not permitted in the RCC at all......
but they let us to do that some years also.  Really odd.

Normally:  Unattended coolers can not be left outside the RCC
 and we are normally told that folding chairs would not be allowed into the facility......but yet they are sometimes. 

Well, this is from the Monument City website:

  • NO COOLERS of any kind, of any size, or for any reason are permitted in the Greater Richmond Convention  Center. Coolers left inside the building will be removed to the outside of the building. Coolers left outside the building are the sole responsibility of the owner, but may be confiscated if security deems them a hazard.

  • Neither the Richmond Volleyball Club nor the facility will assume any responsibility for coolers or providing a place for them.

  • This is a Greater Richmond Convention Center rule that we must enforce as a condition of our contract. This is not our rule. We understand people do not like this, and neither do we. But we are bound by the terms of the contract and cannot negotiate this away. We apologize for any inconvenience it causes.

  • Any individuals who ignore or verbally abuse the security staff will be asked to immediately leave the premises. Please abide by the rules and let the tournament be enjoyable for everyone.

NRV 15 Nationals!
The ODR representative at Nationals, July 2 - 5, 2012
In Columbus Ohio.   We can't wait!
