Jonny “Vegas” Namer headed out to Vail with Team Awesome last week, and while they didn’t return with the hardware, it’s clear that this was just a fantastic lacrosse trip!  Vail is an absolutely beautiful little Colorado town with the mountains right there, and plenty of green fields to play on (at least in the Summer) and we can’t wait to get out there next year.  This year would have been too much to pack in between Thailand and Tahoe, but next year?  Count us in!  And Connor will definitely be playing Masters Lacrosse by then.  He’s getting old!

For now though, sit back, enjoy a little description of the event from Jonny, and then feast your eyes on the photo blobbage.  Looks awesome!!!  I’ll let Jonny tell you a little more:

“This was my first trip to Vail and it certainly won’t be my last!  I had so much fun in Vail this year that I’ll definitely be playing in the Vail Shootout next year… and hopefully, for many years to come.  First off, I want to thank the staff at Park Meadows Lodge, their hospitality was incredible.   Team Awesome is also a very fun team to be on.  Great to meet more of those guys!  We played some very competitive games, but just ran out of steam.  We will be back next year, and it will be even more awesome than this year’s tourney.  The nightlife was also great!  We had a few parties at the Park Meadows Lodge, and we also went to plenty of bars/clubs. Till next year Vail!”

Ok, now we’re really jealous.

How did Maverik lose? They played a team with a plan.
