Hey Grandson of Barcelona Bob: By the way, Vrebalovich was a former AVP player, and a member of the AVP's player run staff. And he and Berger partnered with an investment firm, Spencer Trask Securities. Then, Armato saved the tour in 2001.

Bad business model is @$$%*!*! The AVP has been poorly run by Jason Hodell and a group of newbies who thought that it would be easy to fix what they though was wrong with the sport. The failure of the AVP is directly linked to the management of Hodell and not the economy or a bad business model. Good managers deal effectively with circumstances, not whine about them.
well, the AVP just announced that they are moving the San Francisco event.
So I guess that at least means they will be having the event.
Exciting to think it will happen. Too bad about the lack of public transit to Little Marina Green. Changed the date, too. I wonder if it will warm up by September? The new dates don't conflict with FIVB, so that's a plus.

While Little Nicky Lewin partied in Vegas at his best friend's bachelor party this weekend daddy's brokers were busy negotiating with buyers of the distressed tour. It appears that they have several buyers. Here at the Jersey Shore we get good info like that from Snookie and The Situation! It doesn't hurt that one of the top guys at AVP is a homeboy .... a deal will happen this week.
