A few kind words from New York visitors:
“Our two KAV teams from Buffalo, NY, enjoyed playing in the Monument City Masters tournament. Thanks for all the Virginia hospitality. We met some great people over the weekend. We lost in a great set final against these fun guys from Richmond Volleyball Club. Kudos to all the teams who treated us kindly and the tournament staff.”
