9-3-09 Palmer vs. East - Superfan Night

So our first home game is right around the corner. 9-3-09 vs. East. The first game of the year is going to be a Superfan Night.

What is a superfan night? Well thanks for asking! A superfan night is where we try to get the gym as packed as possible with Palmer supporters. We want to be able to completely drown out the other teams cheering section.

It is up to each team to bring in as many fans as possible. Take the cards I've given you and cut them up into 18 invitations. Whichever team has the most fans bring thier invites back to us on game day will win a pizza party. The fans will have the chance to win a pizza as well, and it's going to be a lot of fun.

If you need more invites let me know!

Warm Up Music

I am working on the warm up music for this year. If you have any suggestions let me know pronto. I'm taking suggestions from all 3 teams and spectators also!

If you don't suggest anything we could end up with 2 cds of Taylor Swift followed by the Taylor Swift rap "Thug Story"

I love it. :)

Jamboree Results!

So Varsity did great going undefeated all tournament. I didn't get to watch as much as I would have liked but I heard all sorts of good things. Great defense, great setting, great offense... :) Keep it up girls!

JV finished 2nd in their tourney. They worked super hard and improved all weekend long. Everyone did great but I have to give kudos to all the passing, serve receive and defense. Anna was setting really well and Kasara was just pounding the ball down. She crushed an overpass that unfortunately went out of bounds but I would have been scared if I was playing against her. That's for sure. Lily has stepped into the libero role and is taking control. I think teams will soon start to try and avoid serving and hitting at her. I can see it now "keep the ball away from Palmer's libero, she passes everything up." Wait, don't they already say that about a certain varsity libero? I could go on and on about each player but we have lots of games to come and I'll reserve my comments for then.

C-team tied for 3rd with Colony JV. They went in there and surprised a lot of teams I think. Miranda was setting some very nice balls and Megin was getting plenty of kills. Jaime and Kristen V. were serving teams off the court. Good job to all of c-team, you placed 3rd in a JV tourney and that's not easy to do. You were playing against a lot of juniors.

Locker Room Project...

I heard that they are sanding the lockers at the Arlow household today. They could use all the help they can get. If anyone is interested in helping out, let me know and I'll see if I can find out the time.
