The KCBS Organizers Round Table in Nashville was an information-filled two hours.
KCBS and MMA staff did a wonderful job of bringing together a diverse group of event organizers for the session.
Organizers wishing to network with other Organizers drop me a note in my in box and I will forward information about the new Organizers Network Forum

They have asked me to be on the panel of contest organizers

I saw a poll today
It seems the majority of folks 68% I believe,
think the recession will last into 2011.
How will this affect you as a Team?
Will you limit the number of contests you do?
Would small entry fee, small prize money
and a nice Taste of Champ Que Money

My day job is taking more of my time to make less money
Which will affect what we can add to the Western Calendar.

After two weeks of "taking it easy" Its not too exciting to be going back to the grind.
Over the Holidays we did go to a new church and enjoyed the services a great deal.
Some of you may know that years ago I was on staff at a large church here.
