June 21-24, 2012
Captain's Quarters Motel & Conference Center, Eastham, MA
The Great Cape Escape is NOT a Yankee event, but is a great weekend that includes volleyball with a number of familiar faces from the Yankee community during the summer. Below are some details from the GCE staff for this year's event.
Great Cape Escape was started in 1992 by a group of volleyball players as a weekend outing on Cape Cod. Like any group event many people already know each other... but the veterans are very welcoming to the newcomers and many lasting friendships are forged at GCE. Here’s our usual schedule:
