Stu and Patty Waite figured it was about time all their friends from the San Diego volleyball scene of the 70s and 80s got together to reminisce and rekindle old friendships. On Sept. 28, after six months of organizing and planning, they did just that, gathering more than 50 former indoor and beach players and their families at the ArtBeat gallery in San Diego. Notable attendees included Dennis Hare, author of The Art of Beach Volleyball; Jack Henn, coach of the San Diego State men’s team which won the 1973 national championship and member of the 1968 Olympic team; George Stepanof, a CBVA beach volleyball Hall of Famer; and Pat Powers, member of the gold-medal winning 1984 men’s Olympic team.
