PENDLETON - The Round-Up Arena infield will take on a new look in mid August.

Rodeo, football and whiffleball are staples on the grass span, but volleyball will get its turn to take center stage when the Blue Mountain and Pendleton volleyball teams hold their fundraising tournament Sunday, Aug. 16.

The tournament will have high school and open divisions with brackets for teams with two to four players.

Registration forms can be picked up at Dave's Chevron in Pendleton.

The entry fee of $20 will gain participants entry to as many of the brackets as they wish to play in and BMCC coach Dave Baty said they have permission to use the lights so play can go into the night.

Each participant also will get a free hamburger.

Baty said the low entry fee is designed to get the tournament off to a running start.

"We were going to have a two or three tournaments but in these times it's tough to get sponsorship from local businesses," he said. "We're just trying to give this thing a good start and raise a little bit of money for the local programs."

Teams also may register the day of the tournament.

Brackets will begin to be filled out at 7:30 a.m. with play starting at 8 a.m. but Baty said teams that can't make it there that early need not worry.

He said it should be no problem creating new brackets as the day goes on to accomadate everyone who wishes to play.

Anyone with questions regarding the tournament can call the BMCC volleyball office at 278-5910, stop by Dave's Chevron or call Baty at 377-9639.
