Lucy Schram’s message below has the schedule for the Far West convention, which includes officials clinics on Sunday Nov. 5.  The message doesn’t give the location.  It’s been at Squaw Valley the last few years.  This is your opportunity for required biannual updates, to get certification as a referee, or upgrade to TD.  We need more officials to help manage our races.  Also, the programs are interesting in terms of what it takes to run one of our events.  I encourage you to participate.  Lucy promises more information soon.
