Exciting New Feature Coming in June!
Surprise addition many have requested.
I frequently set expectations in these newsletters so you know what is coming. A new feature, athlete pictures & bios was mentioned in last month’s newsletter (it is on schedule for this month and will be a little more than pictures & bios). Part of the reason I do this is to set my focus for the coming month and get your feedback for same. Many email me with comments about these and I sometimes adjust based on some excellent advice, requests or points you make. Well, this month, I’ve set my priorities which include adding another much requested feature.
Having Trouble Finding a Meet?
We can help each other find places to compete.
The Upcoming Competitions is still in its infancy and needs meet organizers’ and your help to be a better resource. Anyone can add a meet ( click to add meet). The Upcoming Competition Promotions are again in this issue . Meet organizers can contact me to include any other meets.

“What??? Are you serious?” Those were my first words when I received the official call last October informing me that, in May of 2017, I was going to be inducted into the University of Pennsylvania Athletics Hall of Fame as a member of the 10th class of inductees (Class X). I tried to hold it together throughout the conversation, but I just wanted to scream with joy – which is exactly what I did when I hung up the phone! My youngest daughter said she had a feeling she knew what the phone call was about when she heard me running through the house screaming.
