Seal Beach has settled its differences with the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals, paving the way for the return of the AVP Open July 10-12. A dispute between Mayor Marilyn Hastings and the AVP board over how much the AVP should pay for using the city beach scuttled the event after it was held north of the city pier in 1994 and 1995. When the tour attempted to charge for seating at its tournaments, Hastings contended the city should get a cut. The AVP balked.
