Officials Clinics in Idaho a success: PNA Officiating Coordinator Teri White says, “Hi everyone! Just to share what I think ended up being “the perfect” picture from my clinics in Couer d’Alene last weekend [Jan 7-8]… this sums it up! We had 15 people for the Stroke and Turn clinic and 12 for the Starter in spite of that wicked winter storm that blew through. Fantastic people, and great fun talking to people who truly understand the technical aspects of the strokes! Matt Bronson (Inland NW LMSC Chair) plans on talking about the success of the clinics at the upcoming LMSC Leadership Summit (March). I hope this will generate fire to get other LMSCs who are short of officials to join in. Take care!”
