I say kudos to the Pottstown Rumble organizers for another successful tournament. For a large event that draws several thousand volleyball players from across the United States and probably several thousand spectators, it runs like a well oiled machine. The Rumble is one of the biggest events that is hosted in the borough and probably the most well run. I think it draws a great group of people. A very well-behaved group from what I have observed over the years and today was no different.
I think the cooperation between the borough and the event organizers was apparent. From the PART trolley shuttling people between venues, the folks at Parks and Recreation and the powers that be in borough hall, it seemed as though everyone was on the same page. I even noticed Pottstown Police Officers walking around.
This event has put Pottstown on the sports world map and is a favorite venue among players. Memorial Park looked great. The music was a nice mix and had high energy. The sun was shining. Vendors had lines of people waiting to buy food. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
The Rumble showcases the best things about Pottstown. One vendor said to me they wished there were several more big events during the year like this one. It’s a nice infusion of cash into the local economy. That’s always a positive thing.
So hats off to another great Pottstown Rumble! Feeling Pottstown Proud.
