Best Place to Get Zonked by a Volleyball - 2005
The MotherLode Volleyball Classic
This volleypalooza has been going for more than three decades in Aspen. With some 700 teams competing on eighty courts over Labor Day weekend, it sports the title of the nation's largest volleyball party. Players range in ability from international competitor to laid-back park-grass warrior. Spectators can watch for free, but look out for those the 110 mph shots: If you get beaned, you'll be seeing stars -- and not the normal kind for Glitter Gulch.
