The population of St. John’s swelled by over 4,000 people Oct. 28-29 when the Newfoundland and Labrador Volleyball Association hosted its annual Volleyfest 2011. It’s described as the largest school-based tournament in the country. The association capped participation at 176 teams, which is a record for the event. That’s almost 2,200 athletes from Grades 7 to Level III, plus 50 to 70 coaches and officials and about 25 conveners.
