WCCO Viewers’ Choice For Best Sand Volleyball In Minnesota

Line:92% IT WAS 1999 BEFORE FALLING TO NEARLY 2,000 DURING THE RE RECESSION. NOW SAND BARS ARE ALL OVER THE STATE. THE BEST SAND VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE KIND OF BRINGS US BACK TO WHERE IT BEGAN ON THE BEACH. WHEN BEACH VOLLEYBALL WAS IN ITS EARLY STAGES, IT WAS FRANKIE AND ANNETTE THAT GAVE US THE FIRST STAGES. TO BE CLEAR, THE NAME OF THE GAME IS SAND VOLLEYBALL AND FRANKIE AND ANNETTE WEREN’T VERY GOOD PLAYERS BUT MAVERICK AND GOOSE BROKE HOLLYWOOD’S NO.

Align:start 1 RULE AND EVERYBODY SAW THEM SWEAT IT OUT AND THAT BROUGHT VOLLEYBALL ALL THE WAY TO COOLSVILLE. THIS IS COOLSVILLE MINNESOTA, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS VOLLEYBALL GOUGH. IT’S FOR EVERYONE WHO LIVES ON THE LAKE. HE BROUGHT ERNIE 6 YEARS AGO AND WITH THAT CAME A PROPERTY WITH A 100-YEAR HISTORY AND I VIBRANT VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE. IT WAS ONE NIGHT AND NOW IT’S TWO AND THEN TO THREE NIGHTS. THE DEMAND IS THERE. PEOPLE LOVE IT. WITH PARKING FOR 26 BOATS IN DOOR OR PATIO SEATING, A QUICK SCAN OF THE GROUNDS AND IT’S EASY TO SEE WHY? THIS IS AN EXTRAORDINARY PLACE TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL. WHAT OTHER PLACE IS A BEAUTIFUL LAKE IN THE BACKGROUND FOR A PICTURE PERFECT SETTING. OH YEAH, PICTURE PERFECT. TAKES ME BACK TO THE DAYS OF MIRAMAR.

Align:start TALK TO ME, FRANK. THANKS A LOT. HE’S NOT THAT GOOD. BUT THESE GUYS ARE — BRING YOUR A GAME, BECAUSE THE LEVEL HAVE PLAY HERE IS RIGHT UP THERE. IT’S ALL COMPETITIVE. WHAT’S THE LONGEST YOU’VE GONE THAT YOU ARE PLAYING IN THAT YOU STILL HAVE SAND IN YOUR BODY? AT LEAST 2 DAYS. BOY, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE WORKING HARD. YEAH, THEY ALWAYS GIVE ME THE TOUGH ASSIGNMENTS. WELL, SOMEONE’S GOT TO DO IT. SOMEBODY’S GOT TO DO IT.

Line:92% NOW, IF I CAN JUST GET ALL THIS SAND OUT OF MY PANTS. I’M CHRIS AND WE ARE THE VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE IN MINNESOTA. I’M NOT THAT GOOD. HOLD ON A SECOND. I STILL HAVE A LITTLE IN THERE. VOLLEYBALL SEASON ERNIE STARTS IN EARLY JUNE ALL THE WAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER. THEY HAVE THIS BIG BANQUET AT THE END OF THE YEAR FOR ALL THE PLAYERS THERE. EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT ON THE TEAM, AT ERNIE’S IT’S SUPER COOL.

IT LOOKS LIKE GREAT FUN. I WOULD LOVE TO BE PART OF THE LEAGUE. IT GETS COMPETITIVE..
