I refereed at a volleyball tournament held in this venue. I was impressed by the setup, the cleanliness and the staff at the convention center. If you go to the convention center, don't miss the view from the benches in the back which overlook the water.

Great staff and facility. Very accommodating. In the 20 years that we have used the Convention Center, they have continued to upgrade and expand. Have an idea? They can help make it happen.
