10 JUL 19

Good Morning All

09 July 2019 was our last video and rules question session for this year.  On behalf of Mr. Rick Tucci and the entire USWOA Executive Board, we would like to thank each of you for your support and participation in our daily “What is your call” video and “Rules Question” sessions.  We hope our daily sessions were challenging, educational and as much of a benefit for you as they were for us.

Our daily sessions began on 12 February 2019 and it has been quite an educational journey.  We analyzed and discussed 86 situational videos and rules questions on our USWOA webpage and USWOA Facebook page.  What’s truly amazing, in just two short years, we have had over a half a million views.   That is pretty awesome! 

The overall goal of our forum was not to determine who was right or wrong, but rather “why” you made the call.  We may not have always agreed with the scoring solutions, and that's ok, as many of our situations potentially had more than one scoring solution.  Your analysis and open dialogue was impressive and educational for everyone involved. 

Again, Thank You and we’ll see you on the mats.

Tim J. Pierson
