Last weekend was the final USASF Regional Meeting of the summer. Overall I got the impression the regional meetings were larger and more successful this season than they ever have been. I’m going to take this as a positive sign more people are wanting to continue their education and get credentialed. It being a voting year probably helped out a bit, too.
For the most part the West meeting was inline with the other regions, with the exception being I heard more people talking about attendees monopolizing a speaker’s time in class. Some even went as far to say some speakers were heckled by coaches during classes. The closest we got to this in the Level 6 classes I was involved with was when someone brought up Level 6 judge training in reference to disagreeing with the results at Worlds last season. Fortunately the group was respectful enough to comply when I pointed out the class wasn’t the appropriate time and place for that conversation and we could find time to talk about it outside of class. A couple people took the time to talk to Karen Wilson and I about it and I plan on making it a topic at the USASF Staff Meeting next month.
