Wow. That doesn't bode well.

I sent in my registration for the Region 1 school in Connecticut this past weekend. Also made hotel reservations yesterday. Hope that one goes as planned.

I attended one in Lexington, MA back in 2008 and found it very informative.

There's a lot of this going around. Is it a lack of interest in umpiring, or do you think it's more the economy making people unwilling to travel (and get a hotel and meals, etc.)?

Or are we all just that good?

I won't be coming here that much anymore. I might check in now and again.

I KNOW I am not that good, it is just that time of year, the money to spend id not there and the amount of weekends I have are limited. I will be in meetings/clinics every weekend until the start of the college season, in Feb, and even then I have games one Saturday and a meeting that Sunday.

I ahve attended these schools in the past and the money is well spent.

Do not confuse a school with a clinic. Two separate animals.

I agree Irish, but education is education. All is good in some form or another. I look forward to the time I can get back to a school, but it is not happening in the foreseeable future.

Trying to stem confusion that WILL occur because someone mentioned a school in a thread about a clinic.

It happens all the time. I guarantee I will get a couple e-mails questioning a national or our state school being canceled.

People today do not take the time to read everything to point. They see, they assume and the next thing you know something doesn't get done or goes in the wrong direction and I'm not just referring to umpiring.

Well, there are a few which may have cut into their market, but they aren't that close.
