18U Heat Paint California RED!
"What a trip! When we first landed, we dropped our bags off at the hotel and went straight to the world famous Venice Beach, where we strolled the beach buying cool t-shirts and "people watched".
The next day we were off to the Anaheim Convention Center for our first set of matches. We were 2-1 going into the second day which placed them in a very tough pool facing 949 VC and MB Surf. The guys went 1-2 on day 2 and dropped down to the second tier. On the last day of the tournament, we took our semi final match in two great sets. It was the best game we played all tournament! In the final, we handled a team from Arizona very well in the first set beating them 25-15. But we figured we'd give the people what they paid for (drama!) and dropped the second... In the third set, we refocused and won the match with a 17-15 thriller!
Overall, we had an amazing time playing different teams at a very high-calibre tournament. It was an honour and we were very proud representing LVC Fire and Canada!"
