Our name is mud at Elburn Days

The 85th annual Elburn Days festival is just a month away, and with it will come great food and drink, fun carnival rides and kid activities, first-rate musical entertainment and, last but not least, the Elburn Herald’s Mud Volleyball tournament.

This will be our sixth year sponsoring the Mud Volleyball tournament at Elburn Days, and it will take place Sunday, Aug. 17, at Elburn Lions Park, 500 Filmore St. Check-in will begin at 11:30 a.m., and fun, muddy chaos will soon follow.

As usual, the Mud Volleyball event will feature six courts, and there’s room for 48 teams, which equates to somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 players. Teams are co-ed, six-to-eight players, with at least two females. All team members must be at least 18 years of age.

First- and second-place teams are recognized in the single-elimination tournament.

The Mud Volleyball participation fee is $85 per team if registered before Friday, July 25. A limited number of T-shirts is available for teams that register early. The fee will increase to $110 after July 25.

We’ll see you next month at Elburn Days. Enjoy the food, rides and music, and then get ready to enjoy volleyball in the mud with your friends and family.
