On the weekend of April 3-5th, 2009 30 teams "grabbed their groove" and played and partied in Funkalicious Beach Ball's inaugural tournament at the beautiful Las Palomas Resort in Rocky Point, Mexico.
The theme for the event was "AFROTASTIC APRIL", with team names being "favorite Brothas" (or Sistas)-- and I must say the teams were very creative about naming themselves. It was hard to choose among the hundreds of photos in the Funkalicious photo album (which organizer Shawn McConnell graciously allowed me to use) so you ought to go there yourself to see them all. The participants played hard; when they weren't playing they were watching others play or getting something to eat; at night they partied hearty at Chango's; and finally, when it was all done, Puerto Penasco's famous sunsets capped the days. It sure looks like they were having a great time, doesn't it?
Follow me below the fold for the pictures and, as usual, click on the pics to see them bigger:
Another tournament is planned for October, and I'll make sure it's put in our Upcoming Events Calendar so you won't miss it.
And hey Shawn-- thanks for the great pics!
