To the editor,
I cannot believe all the fuss about the proposed beach volleyball. In 2001, the Canada Games committee held their beach volleyball tournaments here in Grand Bend. Everyone enjoyed these games and they were a huge success, with great results and participation by many volunteers and spectators.
We believe that beach volleyball can be held here again and will give not only children and young people something constructive to play, but something for everyone with open minds to watch and get involved with while bringing more visitors to our resort town.
Since arriving here back in 1976, I’ve supported most activities, volunteered for lots of them, and always enjoyed our public beachfront. Bravo to Mark Reilly for bringing back a participation sport for everyone to dive into.
Give volleyball your support,
The whole thing is a tempest in a teapot, and if you place any credence in Mr. Crossley’s musings, it will be the least of our worries.
