Web Site: Communications while Webmaster is unavailable: Due to the League Webmaster's illness, the League website updates have been delayed. Information on the Virtual Invitationals and any communications to officials have been sent via email. The Board members also may communicate information out to members via the Facebook group as a temporary solution.
Virtual Invitationals: The League organized the first Virtual Invitational in October. 12 teams participated. The results from the October Meet were compiled and distributed to the participating teams. There were some lessons learned during the process and some small changes were made and communicated to the 14 teams expressing interest in participating in the November Meet.
Official's Training: The League Clinics have completed for Meet Managers, Refereeļæ½s and Administrative Officials. This year, there were approximately 66 individuals who participated in the Level 2 sessions, down from 90 last year. There were approximately 77 in the Meet Manager, about the same total as last year, however there were 11 new participants that didn't participate last year. The sessions were very interactive, and some good questions were asked and answered. The trainers reinforced procedures on how to properly combine events as well as some creative suggestions on ways to reduce paperwork.
State and National Championship update: There was very little new information on 2021 championship meets, the expectation was that Nationals would NOT happen. There was no final decision on the PA state sponsored meets as of yet, however the expectation was that they would NOT happen at Penn State as normal.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:01 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Bruce Cooper
