Kylie's brother is the starting Quarter back at Johnson and Mom is also very active in many Sports. With Kylie, it must just run in the family. Way to go Rittimann Family! We are glad you are part of the Magic Family.
The Magic family had a day of fun and food with our good friends from Corpus Christi Crossfire Volleyball Club. The day turned out beautiful and everyone had a good time. A many thanks to all of the Magic Family that volunteered to help with the day's events. We had some great bbq from Vince and company (Rick, Tate, & Ariel) not to mention the fabulous deserts & treats to finish up the meal. Also a big thanks to Fagen, Coach Crystal, and the Crossfire Volleyball players and parents for taking the time to drive in from CC for the day. We want to wish them good luck at the upcoming Tour of Texas Qualifier (although they probably don't need it based on the way they just played). In forming the club, there are several things that were and still are very important to me. In addition to good volleyball, I am very big on food, family, & fun. In the beginning of each club season in our parent meetings, I always discuss how important these things are to me and the Magic organization. I want people to be welcome at our events and welcome at our tables. I want the food to be more healthly than not and an occasional treat is good for the players. I spend a lot of time with our coaches and in team meetings stressing the importance of the sharing of our Magic Family, the Magic Food and the Magic Fun with everyone. From the refs, other Magic teams that might be at the tournament, our families, other families, the brothers, sisters, and always end with "to include the grandmas & grandpas". I go on to say that if someone is standing there and looks hungry, lost, nervous, or just not sure, introduce yourself and ask them their name. Ask them to join us! With all of this said, I received a letter in the mail from a Crossfire Grandparent after Saturday's fun day. A Col Lawrence McVay Jr. First Col. McVay, Jr, let me say on behalf of the Magic Family "Thank You for the sacrifices of your family, and the years of service to our Great Country". Col McVay is the Grandparent of Crossfire player Madison McVay (#6 if you get the chance to see Crossfire play). Col McVay Jr is a very proud Grandpa that attends many of his granddaughters games. After Saturday's Event, he took the time to write a very nice note thanking the Magic Family for their hospitality and a good time. While good volleyball is very important to me, it really is the Food, the Family, the Fun, and the Grandparents like Col McVay Jr. that make it all worthwhile at the end of the day. Winning or losing doesn't matter at all, if you don't have someone to share it with. Getting to share the win or loss with someone like Col McVay, Well It doesn't get much better than that! If you are at a tournament and happen to catch a Crossfire match, cheer for them and look for Col McVay. Tell him Hi and introduce yourself! He is the Proud Grandpa on courtside with a big smile of his face :) Thanks, God Bless, and Good luck to Crossfire and the Magic teams in the Tour of Texas Qualifier this weekend!
