4th Annual Nick Voll Memorial Gym Jam

2014 Nick Voll Memorial Gym Jam

The 4th Annual Nick Voll Memorial Gym Jam
A Charity Basketball Tournament and Birthday Celebration
Saturday, May 3rd at 12 Noon – Jim Parsley Center, Vancouver

I’ve moved the tournament to the Jim Parsley Center gym this year, as Trinity was unavailable. We’ll play full court, with a scoreboard, just like in years past. It’s $15 per player to participate.

New This Year
In order to provide the best experience for you guys, I’ve attached a survey below as part of the registration. All questions are required. I’ll adjust the tournament to suit the popular sentiment.

I will form each team, with the help of a roster committee, to ensure the fairest teams possible. The signup sheet will give you a chance to say with whom you’d like to team up, and we’ll try to honor those requests as best we can.

The cost this year is $15, and I can accept cash and checks.

IF YOU ARE WRITING A CHECK: write it out to “The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools,” who will handle the donations.

Where the Money Goes
My charity of choice is Fort Sports, the sports broadcasting program at Fort Vancouver High School. The program is run by a teacher at Fort, and is staffed by volunteers and students. It broadcasts live football, volleyball, and basketball games to Comcast viewers in Clark County. They’re good people doing good work that benefits the community and gives kids real-life work opportunities.

Who can play?
This is a competitive, invitation-only event. I am inviting guys with whom I play basketball regularly, as well as some friends I’d like to have at the event. If you’ve been invited, and want to bring a friend, please contact me about it. Since I’m compiling the teams based on talent, height, etc., I’ll need to let you know whether there’s room for another person.
