Get outside, spike, flip and connect at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, in Merrell’s second annual volleyball tournament during the Industry Party on August 4th from 6:00 p.m. â€“ 8:00 p.m. The first seven brands to rally a team of six or more (the more the merrier but all teams must have a co-ed presence) will be part of the fun. In line with Merrell’s mission of increasing outdoor participation, all proceeds will benefit Outdoor Nation (www.outdoornation.org) and the cost per team to play is $111, representing Outdoor Nation’s goal of building its foundation one-by-one-by-one.
â€œWe are excited to rally the industry in another volleyball tournament for a good cause,’â€ said Amy Roder, marketing specialist at Merrell. â€œWe’re hoping our industry friends will join us in some competitive fun in the spirit of increasing outdoor participation, something that we, as an industry, hold close to our hearts and in common.â€
Spectators and teams on the sidelines can also join in the fun. Beyond volleyball Merrell will host Flip Cup tournaments, a life size Connect Four Game and a life size Jenga Game. For more information or to register a team, please contact Amy Roder: firstname.lastname@example.org; 616.863.4748.
