Ixtapa: January 14-21, 2017 (192 players, 250 total guests, 10 AVP Pros)

   This vacation (#42) was our 23rd year to the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa region and 42nd trip overall, where we fit 28 nets on the beautiful Guerrero beaches.  The volleyball competition was again at its best with some great players making the KOB/QOB finals in all 6 divisions.  The local food in town was cheap & amazing at our favorite places like Deborah's, Frank's & Calabozo’s, to name just a few.  The beer and TEQUILA SHOTS were, as always, a screamin’ deal at Alex’s! The AVP professionals’ knowledge (they)omit passed along was top notch with the 6 clinics and hundreds of private pro games, aka PPG’s. To top it all off, the party atmosphere this year was one of the best - whether it was early on playing pool games, lobby card games, to “pick your pony” on the court, to dancing, to late night bologna bar. Thanks for the positive energy all week long! 

   The trip kicked off early for some as the early birds were strong this year with almost 50 people getting in one, two, or even seven days early and staying in various places in Zihuat or Ixtapa to relax before EVERYONE arrives.  This year’s opening night color was GREEN!  Saturday during and after dinner the hotel looked like a St. Patrick Day’s parade.  Great way to figure out who the 250 volleyball players are as well as our “hola me llamo” name tags to help get down names for the week!

   Sunday after opening ceremonies we had some afternoon football watching (some guests happier than others with the results) but most of the guests were happy to be away from winter and get their feet in the warm sand.  That night, as we like to say, “we got off campus” for cheap $1 beers with an old friend, ALEX.

   Monday continued with the king/queen doubles as well as 80+ on the boat for snorkeling, food, twerking, drinks, backflip competition, napping & of course “diaper bobbing.”  We spent the rest of the day with 200 of our new closest friends on one of the best beaches in the world playing our favorite noncompetitive game “HOOK!!!”. The pro’s again took the opportunity to get creative with their “props” using coconut drinks to set with or cocktail tables to pass with then jump off of for a little extra flair. As the day came to an end, we watched one of the best sunsets your eyes have scene; first row tickets were free!

   The week continued with yet another round of volleyball, PPG’s, clinic #3 of #6, pickup play, pool volleyball, the women’s 2x2 pro demo match & of course our major theme night on Tuesday…. PAJAMAS!!!  Full on “warm” onesies, robes & sweatpants, to “cooler” scantily clad outfits, just underwear & well… you get the idea.  With the theme night as the instigator, Tuesday’s late night may have been the busiest “bologna bar” to date; well done everyone. 

   Wednesday kicked off with the first wave of elimination KOB/QOB rounds, which meant more pickup play, more participation in the clinics, more PPG’s scheduled and of course the men’s 2x2 & 3x3 pro demo matches where the “Loomis Wigs” were hilarious and Kolinske’s stunt double was looking pretty good.  The night life was great with “happy hour” at Alex’s which led into Frank’s who had a live band to get down to.

   Thursday the battles in each division were getting intense as each division was down to the sweet 16 then elite 8 players.   The good news for eliminated players was the Coed option, fun times in the draw as we pair you up to form new “lifelong partnerships” and start the afternoon bracket to crown 6 more divisional winners by Friday morning.  Thursday night was another “Sexy Bar” night where we got …. well SEXY as always. 

   The end of the week was here (insert emoji sad face) but Friday was one of the best days of the trip (insert emoji happy face).  With most players eliminated the few that remained got to play their finals in front of all their old and new friends.  Clinic #6 was everyone’s favorite topic of HITTING, by the end the Molten balls were getting smashed.   For the 2nd year in a row the hotel set up 20+ tables, an amazing dinner, and served drinks at the awards ceremony as we all dressed in our finest WHITES to show off those week-long Mexico TANS.  We recognized each of the 12 divisional winners, as well as our favorite part, the MVP’s!  This year our annual auction raised a record amount, $6,500 to go towards local Zihuatanejo schools. Thanks to all those who bid and to the pros for donating great items.

   As always, we end the recap with “what a week of sun, volleyball, food, sunsets, friends, ocean/pool time, drinks and dancing!”.  This week was top notch in all aspects, all was because of you!  We look forward to all hanging out again on a beach, on your hometown courts, a reunion stop or a professional AVP tournament cheering on our favorite professionals!

Sooooocccccciiiiiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllll………. Ooooiiiiiiii!!!

P.S. Staff research with the help from 10 guests found Mangoz dance club to be a definite destination for 2018, well done research crew!

Puerto Vallarta: November 12-19, 2016 (96 players, 125 total guests, 6 AVP Pros)

This vacation (#41) was our 8th year to the Puerto Vallarta/Nuevo Vallarta region and 41st trip overall.  The hotel was amazing as always especially Manuel!  The beach was as flat and wide as it has ever been which lead to the great volleyball competition.  The 6 pros taught and played so many games that by the end of the week they were impressed with how improved everyone was, guess thats what happens when you play that many games, i.e. 131 for Mr Seeland.  The early arrivals got a little volleyball in on the newly donated SOB Volleyball Vacations Net at the Buenaventura & then were taken to a nice downtown PV dinner and a fun walk down the Malecon for dessert.  We kicked off the trip in color style with BLUE!!!  Every looked great!!!  Sunday was a bunch of volleyball (if you were NOT on Bucerias time Kris and Mike) with 4's, clinics and 2's which lead us into a boat cruise with an amazing sunset that may have sparked a dance party.  Monday continued the King/Queen tournament, the 1st of the Private Pro Games which lead into the epic Pro Demo Match which was fun to be 1st row watching some killer 3x3!  That wasn't enough for us so the pros continued and did coed 2x2, man those athletes are GOOD!!!  Tuesday the overcast broke and we had "sunshiney" days the rest of the week.  We were down to 3 divisions of King/Queen then we went on our side trip excursion.  This years adventure the group went into downtown PV for ziplining and also a chance to explore downtown PV during the daytime.  Wednesday the King/Queen tournaments were winding down and we crowned 6 winners, but before that happened we had a surprise arrival by the one and only Jeremy Akers, not sure who was happier the guests or Angie. Thursday started off with a morning clinic then we kicked off the coed bracket (after getting paired together the previous night) followed by more Private Pro Games, pick up and hook.  As a group we headed out to Bucerias (1st visit there) and went dancing at The Drunken Duck with some silly wigs, great job by the live band.  The week flew by as always and it was Friday already, we crowned 6 coed champs who battled through the heat and a tough double elimination bracket. After our final sunset we end the week as usual with everyone dressed in WHITE since we are all nice and TAN for the closing ceremonies.  As we munched, had a beverage, recapped the week, recognized our winners, played a drinking game we ended with the MVP's our favorite part.

  

What else can we say but THANKS to everyone for making our 41st trip South of the Border a great one!  How can it not be with great people, food, drink, beach, hotel, dancing, sun, adventures, pros, Manuel & of course the sport we love VOLLEYBALL!  We look forward to 2017 and doing 2 weeks at this amazing location!

 Cabo San Lucas: March 12-19, 2016 (144 guests, 6-8 AVP Pros)

This vacation (#40) was our 3rd year to Cabo San Lucas and 40th trip overall.  The 2016 Los Cabos vacation marked our return to the California Baja Peninsula, for our annual South of the Border Spring Trip, this year included a new hotel and new BEACH!  Over 125 guests joined us from 22 States, including the great white north, learning from the 6 pros on the beach. The week started off with big news, the beach was awesome and we were able to set up 26 NETS!!!  We had 8 days of great weather to play as much volleyball  as you wanted. The 5 professionals taught 5 group clinics and with special guest arrival on Wednesday of Mr Brent Doble to make it 6, most guests were able to get a Play with a Pro Session in before departure on Saturday morning. Highlights of the week included our usual opening color theme night, this year Black is Back, where we took over the outdoor buffet – followed by the beach bar – then closed down the Cantina.  Tuesday was a great day of ball followed by the side trip, buses down to Cabo San Lucas for a walk around town followed by a dinner cruiser which turned into a dance off.  After the cruise we piled into Cabo Wabo where special guest Toby Keith hit the stage with the house band! SOB organizers would like to take credit for this, but it was just good timing.  On a side note, the second bus back to the hotel that night detoured back to Cabo Wabo to catch the show.  All the SOBers got off the bus to go inside except 1 would “fell asleep” only to wake up parked in a dirt parking lot thinking he missed the hotel stop!  Good thing the SOB buses were there to get everyone home! "Hooook" was in full force as always, games going until you couldn't see the ball anymore. In the style that only he can provide, Billy Schuster was noticed taking a shot of Tequila during a water break in the Elite 8 while everyone else on his net actually drank water.  By Wednesday our Men/Women finalists battled it out after 5-6 rounds of tournament play and we crowned the Anejo/Reposado/Blanco CHAMPIONS! Continuing tradition for Thursday night we went to the "other Downtown," San Jose del Cabo for the Art Walk, dinner, cheap drinks and more dancing at El Companaire (The Barn) on the dance floor in our "stylin" wigs and St. Patricks Day best.  Like last year the pros were in full "Spring Training" mode and would do as many drills as they could to entertain you with their skill along with the pro demo and King of the Court.  New to Cabo this year was Play with the Pro games. Our photographer Russ working hard as always including the ever so popular PRIVATE photo shoots, thanks Russ!   After a wind delay on Thursday afternoon, the week ended with a ton of volleyball and coed champions being crowned on Friday.  One of the highlights and for the 2nd year in a row, our professionals took on the local Mexican team in a battle royal winning the 1st 2 games before mixing teams up for a FUN 3rd game!  The trip was capped off by the awards dinner Friday night. Another top notch award ceremony with the catered private dinner/drinks during the ceremony as we recognized the week's winners, the trips MVP's & the fifteen 2015/16 trip trifectas.  The live and silent auctions raised over ??? for a local charities, a fantastic feat from an amazing group of people, that included a custom ball with photo for $1,000. Cabo San Lucas was another successful SOB Vacation, our guests got a chance to play the game they love on a beach for 8 straight days, have 1, 2, 20 or more cold drinks; dance a couple nights away, and meet like minded players from all over!   Thanks to everyone for growing our Spring trip to Los Cabos!  See you spring, 2017!

Ixtapa: January 16-23, 2016 (230+ guests, 9 AVP Pros)

   SOB #39 was our 22nd year to the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo and sold out earlier than ever.  It has become the can't-miss event for many players all over North America.  Each year this trip sees 240+ players and friends, new and old quickly became one big family by week’s end.  2016 started off with our staff setting up 30 nets on a nice wide flat beach and Friday afternoon 50 early arrivals were on the beach shaking off jet lag and dialing in sand legs.  Coed 4's started Saturday, however the highlight of the day was perhaps the best sunset we have ever had, simply amazing.  Opening Night Color Theme was ORANGEand Saturday night in the lobby bar looked like a Bronco game!!!  During the day on Sunday our volleyball transitioned from 4x4 into the first round of doubles, with scheduling adjustments made for players from NFL Playoff cities.  Sunday also started the week’s daily clinics with the 9 pros offering great instruction.  Sunday evening was our first night off property and newbie’s were introduced to the downtown area of Ixtapa, Deborah’s Restaurant, and their first night of "trouble" with Alex and "Teeeequuiilllla Shoooooottttssss!!!!"  Monday was snorkel cruise day and half the group enjoyed the Picante while others played pick up at the hotel or explored Old Town Zihuatanejo.  By Mid-Afternoon, 200 players had made it to Playa La Ropa for an epic afternoon of  Hook at  La Perla.  We added a King of the Court Net this year which was well received and the main 4's court had a line wrapping around most of the perimeter. Following another La Ropa Sunset, everyone scattered to restaurants down the beach or in "Zihuat" for dinner.

   Tuesday morning everything changed....the ocean got mad and said "no volleyball for you this morning!"  All 30 courts washed out because of an epic 11 foot swell that threw amazing 20+ foot waves at the beach all day. On the bright side we had 1 dry court and as the tide receded, the staff was able to reschedule games on 12 wet but playable courts.  The swell eventually backed down to its' usual 3-4', the courts dried out, and we had 30 courts back up and playable by Wednesday evening.  In a way, it was a nice blessing as the damp sand stayed much cooler than years past which allowed for more pick up play during the day.  Thanks to all of you for your patience!

   We continued the fun Tuesday night at the Sexy Bar and Wednesday we went to the Tree House aka Kopados for a killer night of dancing. We had two pro demos again this year so we finished the day Tuesday and Wednesday watching some of the best athletes on the planet strut their stuff on center court, with epic waves crashing in the background.

   Tournament elimination started mid-week and the "lucky losers" got to enter into the coed draw starting with some fun match making and "Oh that's a good match."  Thursday saw more eliminations from sweet 16, to elite 8 and finally just our Friday finalists remained. With a majority of the players eliminated it was time to get crazy for THEME NIGHT: "Viva Las Vegas!"  As always this group didn’t disappoint with their creativity.  We saw multiple Siegfried and Roy's and their pet tigers, slot jockey's, slot machines, Blue Man group, Fear & Loathing, Vegas dancers, dealers, Hangover & of course the Bellagio Fountains!  Friday saw all 6 divisions of KOB/QOB get crowned along with the 3 divisions of Coed 2's. Congrats to all the winners and thank you to Pros Ty Loomis and Kelley Larsen who did not disappoint in the finals.  Ending the week is always sad but this year we went out in style with an amazing group dinner dressed in our nice whites, thank you Park Royal staff! We continued the tradition of silent and live auction during the awards, where we raised a new record, $4,122 for Zihuatanejo schools!!!  Thanks to the pros for their donations and to everyone who bid, i.e. Serwa’s and Whipple’s.  As always, thank you everyone for another fantastic week filled with great memories & new friends.  Next year can’t come soon enough to share the amazing beach, drinks, sun, ocean, volleyball, food & instruction from the pros.  We plan to storm the beach again next January and hope to see you all then.

Puerto Vallarta: November 14-21, 2015 (120+ guests, 6 AVP Pros)

This vacation (#38) was our 7th year to the Rivieria Nayarit location and 38th trip overall.  PV once again sold-out, 4 years running, with 20+ "extras" that joined us as well.  From our side we just have to say WOW, what a great group of guests, it was our pleasure to "work" the week for all you wonderful people.  In continuing with our SOB tradition we started the week off in a color, this year we matched the hotel and went with PURPLEeveryone looked amazing!!!  Sunday we crammed in some morning volleyball so we could take a new 7hr boat cruise adventure. Those 7 hours felt like 7 minutes, we had an amazing Q & A with the pros (volleyball and some not so volleyball questions), followed up by snorkeling/kayaking/paddle boarding, then we jetted over to Yelepa for an amazing hike to a waterfall for a dip, which led to a secluded beach for snacks/drinks (Raicilla).  Upon our return back we had a little company, just a "few" dolphins wanted to play with us, wow what a site!  We followed that amazing time up with a dance party as we enjoyed the downtown lights in the dark. Next year look for another new side trip adventure.  Early in the week we kicked off the doubles with a little Monday "heat" and enjoyed a little happy hour in the Rock Start Suite where they treat us like true Rock Stars!  As the week went along we crowned the champions of our 6 KOB/QOB divisions, CONGRATS to all finalists!!!  With the usual "turtle season" going on, guests enjoyed the many newborn turtles, some nests had more than 100!  Throughout the week the pros were busy with 100+ Private Pro Games, 6 group clinics, and one semi-private 45 minute clinic.  We hope you all walked away better volleyball players learning from some of the best on the planet.  As always we finished the week up matching everyone up with coed partners.  After two days of intense competition we crowned our final champions over the 3 divisions, again congrats to all who battled all the way through to the finals!  Thursday was our usual get out, get crazy, get a wig and let’s go dancing in PV!  As the week comes to an end we have our traditional award/closing ceremonies, and since we all have a great tan going let’s do WHITE clothing (except the master of ceremonies, Tom Davenport).  PV continues to be the trip each fall where it is the best family reunion ever!  We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do providing it.  As always we want to say thank you for making the week so memorable!  Hard not to with amazing Volleyball, Sun, Drinks, Food, Guests and Pros!!!  We are already counting down to 2016, Luiz how many days?

Cabo San Lucas: April 11-18, 2015 (145 guests, 8 AVP Pros)

This vacation (#37) was our 2nd year to Cabo San Lucas and 37th trip overall.  The 2015 Los Cabos vacation marked our return to the California Baja Peninsula, for our annual South of the Border Spring Trip.  Over 145 guests joined us from 23 States, including the great white north, learning from the 8 pros on the beach. The week started off with big news, The ENGLE's showed their "bumping" skills and told everyone they are "expecting" the "mother" of all trips!  Congrats Engle's!!!  We had 8 days of great weather to play as much volleyball  as you wanted. The 8 professionals taught 5 group clinics and continued with the Cabo tradition of PS's (Pro Sessions), 45 minute 6 guests and 1 pro semi-private clinics. Highlights of the week included our usual opening color theme night, this year shades of BLUENavy/Teal (not Hunkus, even though we had a "Tealle " hand made shirt), where we took over the "Sky Bar."  Tuesday was a great morning of ball followed by the side trip, new this year, a Snorkel Cruise to Chileno Beach then to downtown Cabo for dinner.  After dinner we had a great time dancing the night away at Squid Roe until you couldn't stand! Good thing the SOB buses were there to get everyone home! "Hooook" was in full force as always, games going until you couldn't see the ball anymore, which would lead into a few hot tub parties. The live and silent auctions raised over $7,000 for a local charities, a fantastic feat from an amazing group of people, that included a custom ball for $1,200. By the end of the week our Men/Women finalists battled it out after 5-6 rounds of tournament play and we crowned the Anejo/Reposado/Blanco CHAMPIONS including Devlin getting his 1st win in 20 trips! Continuing tradition for Thursday night we went to the "other Downtown," San Jose del Cabo for the Art Walk, dinner, cheap drinks and more dancing at The Barn on the NEW dance floor in our "stylin" wigs.  Like last year the pros were in full "Spring Training" mode and would do as many drills as they could to entertain you with their skill along with the pro demos.  One of the highlights and a SOB 1st, our professionals took on the local Mexican team in a battle royal, all for a great cause!  The week ended with coed champions being crowned on Friday and the trip was capped off by our awards ceremony.  Our photographer Russ working hard as always including the ever so popular PRIVATE photo shoots, thanks Russ!  Another top notch award ceremony with the catered private dinner/drinks during the ceremony as we recognized the week's winners, the trips MVP's & the fifteen 2014/15 trip trifectas.  Cabo San Lucas was another successful SOB Vacation, our guests got a chance to play the game they love on a beach for 8 straight days, have 1, 2, 20 or more cold drinks; dance a couple nights away, and meet like minded players from all over!   Thanks to everyone for growing our Spring trip to Los Cabos!  See you spring, 2016!

Ixtapa: January 17-24, 2015 (215+ guests, 8 AVP Pros)

This vacation (#36) was our 21st year in Ixtapa and our 36th SOB trip.  We have once again sold out the doubles tournament 4 months prior, thanks for the support, especially from the influx of Canadians and Texans!  The stories that come out of the trip are priceless, we look forward to all the new ones to come!  As the norm with Ixtapa perfect volleyball weather sunny and no rain or wind, except for the late night rain Monday.  We had 1st time visits to the beach from two EXCEPTIONAL people, Deborah the Owner of Mama Norma's & Alex, 1st time in all the years they came out to watch.  Our newest addition to the Ixtapa trip was our Private Games (PG's) with the pros, just sign up to experience a once in a lifetime experience.  On top of that add in a private photo shoot by our man Russ Dix, where else can you get that.  Opening night theme color is always an easy way to "discover" our group and this year we were BRIGHT as the Mexico sun, YELLOW!!!  During the day on Sunday our volleyball transitioned from 4x4 to the start of 2x2  with clinic #1 (of 6).  Night time was our 1st visit to Alex's where "Macho Macho Mug, Who Wants to Drink the Macho Mug!"  Almost half the group went on the Snorkel Boat and reconvened with everyone else for another epic "HOOOOOK, ALL FOUR" day at La Perla in old town Zihuatanejo.  Tuesdays volleyball and clinics continued during the day leading to THEME NIGHT, Famous Duo, Combo or Group.  As always the group never disappoints with their creativity, 2 groups of Gilligan's Island, couple ROWDY wrestlers, Robert Palmer Addicted to Love, The Single Ladies, etc.  The list goes on and on as did the party where 30+ needed to cool off for a late night dip in the pool!  Our pro demo matches were back and in full competition, can't beat free professional beach matches, wow they are GOOD!  The bologna bar was busy as always with the late night owls, who wants the soup du jour?  Thursday continued with King/Queen of the beach and players eliminated got to participate in the always fun coed 2x2 draw, who is my partner going to be?  More Sexy Bar action that went late as always, why not? Friday was the finals of 9 different divisions that lead into our award ceremony recognizing our winners as well as our 15 MVP's!!!!!  As the award ceremonies came to an end we completed the silent auction and we raised over $4,500 in donations that goes to local Zihuat schools, THANK YOU for your generosity!  Friday night we found a new late night dance location, IxtaParadise, what a way to end the week on the "bouncy" floor!  We say this every year, but it's true, what a GREAT week, GREAT group, GREAT volleyball, GREAT friends & most of all GREAT memories!  Thanks for being a part of something special and look forward to seeing you on the beach!  Start the 2016 countdown!

Puerto Vallarta: November 15-22, 2014 (110+ guests, 6.5 AVP Pros)

Our 6th year on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta continued the tradition of an amazing trip with amazing people.  The weather was perfect, no rain, no wind for highs of 87 and nice cool lows of 69 at night.  The week opened up with our traditional color theme night where we GREENED it up (easy color for the Akers family).  Our Sunday boat trip was "adjusted" for an earlier departure so we could snorkel before the sunset.  We had a surprise for the guests, a nice little visit for 4 days from the man/the myth/the legend Doble!  Thanks Brent for the 4 days. Of course before he left we had a tequila tasting in our Rock Star Suite on the top floor that morphed into a dance party.  Our men's and women's 2x2 finals were moved to Wednesday where we had guests "We're Cheering For You ...!"  Throughout the week we saw baby turtle hatchings right on the courts and even saw a mama turtle spend 45 minutes to lay her eggs.  Our pros did a combo of 6 group clinics, 1 semi private clinic (pro sessions) & countless games of 2 pros and 2 guests, what an experience for each guest!  We brought our amazing photographer from Zihuat Russ Dix to capture the memories of the whole week!  What about those 7 sunsets we had, all kinds of variations, not a bad one all week!  Thursday was our chance to visit downtown Puerto Vallarta for our wig/crazy hair dance night at The Zoo and Mandala!  As always we wrapped up the week with coed finals (no pros just guests) and the award ceremonies on stage in the lobby!  We say it all the time but another amazing week of volleyball, sun, drinks, and nightlife!  Thanks to the pros for teaching all week and most importantly you the guest for a memorable week, only 355 days until 2015 PV!!!

Cabo San Lucas: April 5-12, 2014 (140+ guests, 6 AVP Pros)

The 2014 Los Cabos vacation marked our inaugural trip to the California Baja Peninsula, and we have found our NEW home for our annual South of the Border Spring Trip.  Over 140 guests (26 States plus 11 of our northern neighbors from Canada) and 6 pros were on the beach for 2014. We had 8 days of perfect weather to play as much volleyball  as you wanted. The 6 professionals taught 5 group clinics and NEW to the Cabo trip PS's (Pro Sessions), which were private 45 minute sessions with 4 guests and 1 pro "working" with guests on fun and informative drills.  Highlights of the week included our usual color theme night of RED (look for a new color for 2014/2015 vacations) where we took over the "Sky Bar."  Tuesday we ventured to downtown Cabo San Lucas on 3 SOB buses to Tabasco's and took glass bottom boats out to Lover's Beach and saw the famous "Arch" up close and personal. The group explored downtown Cabo for dinner on the town and somehow a majority of the group found a great dance location at Squid Roe. Each night we saw the usual "Hooook"  game go until dark and then leading to a few hot tub parties. Wednesday was the traditional Coed draw and a live auction that raised $800 for a local charity. The pros were in full "Spring Training" mode and would do as many drills as they could to entertain you with their skill; they even threw in a few "side out against the pro" sessions. Thursday afternoon saw our finalists battle it out after 4 days of tournament and we crowned the Anejo/Reposado/Blanco CHAMPIONS! Thursday we went to the other Downtown, San Jose del Cabo and found $1 beers and more dancing at The Barn! The week ended with coed champions being crowned on Friday capped off by our awards ceremony.  A nice touch by the hotel was the catered private dinner during the ceremony as we recognized the week's winners, trip trifectas and MVP's.  The Friday Silent Auction was a success, thanks to the generosity of our guests we raised over $3,000 between the two auctions. All in all Cabo San Lucas was another successful SOB Vacation and a chance for our guests to play a little volleyball; have a few cold drinks; dance the night away, and meet like minded players from all over!   Thanks to everyone for being a part of our 1st trip to Los Cabos!  See you in 2015!

Ixtapa: January 18-25, 2014 (230+ guests, 8 AVP Pros)

The 2014 Ixtapa trip marked our 20th year in Ixtapa, & 21 years of vacations South of the Border.  Over 230 guests (20 States plus Bermuda, Canada & Germany) and 8 pros were on the beach for 2014. We had 8 days of perfect weather to play as much volleyball  as you wanted (some guests over 100 games).  The 8 professionals taught 6 clinics and played over 450 games of pick up play.  Highlights of the week included our theme nights, starting off with our "colors" theme of RED then later in the week First Responder (everything from Dr's to Superheros to The Texas Rangers).   We (most of us, 65 CO strong) all were happy watching the Broncos win instead of playing volleyball Sunday afternoon, priorities here!  Monday another sold out snorkel cruise that led the way into Zihuat for some hook on the famous beautiful beach of La Perla.  Some new games came about like "Sound Hook" and "Whirl Pool."  New to Ixtapa 2014 was the addition of a Women's pro 2x2 demo match Tuesday to go along with the men's 2x2 demo Wednesday!  Kopados aka Tree House Bar, was a hot & sweaty but the drinks were cold and the dancing went all night.  Hook games every night until dark with some Pro's using props such as flip flops, paddle boards, coconuts, chairs, etc.  Sexy Bar was ...  well as we always say SEXY!  Alex's was a staple many nights for $1 beers and MANY games of Thumper.  The week ended as we headed on over to The Generals, for dancing which included Twister and maybe a microphone all night long!  The Friday auction we saw the generosity of our guests raise $2,900 for Los Ninos to build schools in the area.  All in all another great week of sun, volleyball, drinks, games, dancing and overall great people!   Thanks to everyone for being a part of Ixtapa 2014!  See you in 2015!

Puerto Vallarta: Nov. 30th - Dec.7th, 2013 (100+Guests, 6 AVP Pros)

Puerto Vallarta (PV) 2013 had 100+ guests and 14 nets on the beach in front of the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel.  Our 5th anniversary on the beach in PV was one of the best to date!  We had an amazing group of players from 20+ states, including Canada & Germany playing volleyball for 8 straight days with 6 of the best pros in the world, i.e. a Silver Medalist!  The week kicked off with RED as our opening theme night, the boat cruise had dolphin and bird sighting's which led into an incredible boat dance party!  Amazing pro to guest ratio of 1 to 15 with some of the best beach players on this earth.  We had a couple birthdays to celebrate, like we need a reason to have fun.  Our 3-time coed champion continued his dominance in the coed draw in a thriller 3 game set.  By the end of the week things got even better with crazy Wig/Hair/Clothes night for downtown dancing in PV, where we saw some limbo and slip and slide contests!

Nassau Bahamas: March 2nd - March 9th, 2013 (54 Guests, 2 AVP Pros)

This was SOB's 1st trip outside of Mexico to Nassau Bahamas.  We had 50+ guests on the beautiful white sandy Cable Beach that enjoyed volleyball games and clinics from our 2 top notch pros, Evan and Christal Engle.  Each and every day the games were fun and competitive, with Coed 4x4, Men's/Women's 2x2, and we ended the week with the Coed 2x2 finals on Friday.  During the week the wind was minimal with plenty of sunshine while Tom & Doug "manned" the pick ax.  Inaugural trips have the best stories, and this trip didn't disappoint, from the daiquiri drinks at the shack across the street made with real fruit, Senor Frogs dance party featuring "Leap Frog," the snorkel cruise in amazing blue water, visiting the famous fish fry row, to "borrowing" a bus for transportation of 50+ people, grabbing beers all week from Tom/Doug's bathtub/shower suite, Atlantis Casino Night, and everything in between.  This will be a trip that is remembered by all for the adventures, the people and of course the 8 days of volleyball on the white sands of Nassau!

Ixtapa: January 15-22, 2011 (200+ guests, 7 AVP Pros)

The 2011 Ixtapa marked our 17th year in Ixtapa. The trip sold out on October 15th (160 players) so we decided to add additional 30 spots and bump the draw to 192 players. This required more staff, more pros, more nets, and a tweak or two to the formats. Rotating 4's was cut back to two rounds in order to add more doubles and "open" an afternoon for Hook at La Perla in Zihuatanejo. 2011 also saw the addition of a Double Elimination Coed 2's draw for all players failing to advance to the Elite 8's. Sexy Bar rocked again, Double Dutch was in full swing, The Chan Man brought it all to the final and Dane made good on side bets when his man lost, top auction item was some massage time with LA Vanessa, and all in all, it was another exceptional week.
