“He had watched some beach volleyball down there outside a restaurant, and he thought it'd be great to start one of our own,” McGee explained recently of his former partner's notion. “He just raved about it. What sold us was there was nothing like it in our area at the time. We were out here in the boonies, and we needed to put ourselves on the map.”
