20th Annual Marianas Pro-Am Cup

 This year's Marianas Cup had 25 men's and 16 women's doubles teams. Misaki, who is already 14.5 was the youngest player to play and we're proud to say that he made it all the way to the semi-finals!
 Misaki is an all-around athlete and plays not only beach volleyball, but soccer, baseball as well as surfing and snowboarding.
 The women were doing quite well and the Japanese beach volleyball players dominated.
 Minami is now 8.5 yrs and a surfer girl as well. She and Harley enjoy a nice photo shot.
 Russ and Cramer were on the mic all weekend, MC-ing the event.

 Misaki's partner was former AVP pro, Jeff Carlucci. Together, they did the best they could and beat a lot of other great teams. Both Godfather Russ and Papa Jon were proud!

 The four time winners were Daisuke and Junki from Japan (semi-pros) who defeated AVP Pro Ty Loomis and his amateur partner, Matt, a military helicopter pilot from Guam.
Congratulations to all who participated and to all the organizers, volunteers and sponsors for another fantastic event of amazing sports in Saipan!
