North, Central American and the Caribbean WMA Regional Championships

 

Last month I wrote about our concern that the LOC could host a quality meet. The experience in Clermont has identified numerous issues that would have to be addressed by the LOC to bring the total ‘championship experience’ up to standard. I have reports from the Games Committee and other sources and sent the head of the LOC a document with our issues which range from parking, to officials, to the band at the athletes dinner.

 

As of now Clermont remains the site for 2009. Several groups have shown interest to provide an alternative if either Clermont pulls out or the MTF Committee determines they cannot host a quality meet.

 

Annual Meeting

 

The draft schedule is out and I have included the tentative MTF Committee schedule ( XLS File ). I’m working on the agenda so if you have items please send them to me.

 

2009 Budget

 

The process has begun so get your requests to Joy and me.

 

 

 

See you in Reno at the Annual Meeting!
