i have to thank jason, admin, and the rest of the PAKC crew for inviting me to be a part of this. there were some great things done for this event that i hope to see implemented at future events (such as the strike zone painting).
i feel like it really made a difference having circuit league refs available to us, knowing that they actively work with these rules on a regular basis and are much more familiar with them than most other refs.
thank you to all the players, as well. i had a chance to speak with the refs at one point during the day and they said that with a few exceptions, most everyone was pretty well behaved. there were obviously going to be argued calls, but most everyone seemed to know when to accept the call, move on, and not take things too far.
to those that got to meet my sister this weekend, thank you for being so welcoming. i'm really proud that we have such a great community. sometimes it gets lost here, but in person people tend to be friendly and supportive. it was her first time seeing adult kickball but she had a great time, and is already looking forward to helping out at vbko in september.
can't wait to see everyone in dc!
