Gillis Bronze - Third Year Inductees
OZ and Hill
The Stuetzel Bros.
Eric Read has been one of the most consistently creative forces for over a decade, helping the Knolly Camp achieve stardom at the Gillis. If it wasn’t for him, nobody in that camp would have gotten close to the Hall.
Ozurovich and Hill have been attending The Gillis for over 25 years, conducting their own tourney within a tourney each year, keeping the St. Bernards Hoffy connection going strong. They have stayed together as a team the entire time and are the leaders of the most vocal camp and court at the Gillis.
Robby Brown - This King has been showing his positive attitude and winning smile for over 25 years at The Gillis. He always picks a partner cuz he’ll have a blast with them, not because he wants to win (right Butch?). He has always been one of the best personalities to grace this beach. It’s amazing too, he’s still available. Girls? You’re missing out.
Mike Kerker & Crew - Can you say “Life of the Gillis”? This guy can carry the weekend party on his shoulders alone. His clan of Gillis animals bring the spirit of this tournament to new heights. From their great camps and costumes to the high level of volleyball in full dress, Mike and his crew are welcome members to the Hall of Fame.
The Stuetzel Bros., Phil (Dad) and Robby - The great Harry can no longer cast a shadow on these local boys who have attended almost all 31 tourneys. Robby has been the builder and idea guy for so many great camps and teams, even dancing in diapers one year. Phil has carried many players, including his dad, to new heights over 3 decades. It must be a family thing.
Brian Brandlin - Brian has been the force behind his own court for decades now. He never even moves a large muscle or gets his hair out of place while directing party-goers from his beach chair. The group he commands seems to get larger and larger each year but never out of control. His penchant for free legal advise while sipping a Coors Light is made from legends. Stop by Brandlin Legal Clinic, always at the south side of the G Spot.
Dannie Cavanaugh (with Horimoto) - Once a proud Oiler, Dannie has been THE ever-present force that united all Culver City Gillis participants for 3 decades. Some grow up there and move on, but Dannie is the never-moving king. His costumes and great Legends play never diminish and his support each year places him in the Bronze Gods of the Gillis.
