The Referee School originally scheduled for Feb. 7 had to be postponed until Feb. 21 due to congestion downtown at the Bradenton Area Riverwalk Regatta.

This column apologizes to Ed Leonard, whose name was inadvertently omitted from the list at Palmetto, SWCD D-14 Restricted Draw Doubles. First in Consolation was Faren VanDeGrift and Ed Leonard.

The 2015-2016 tournament schedules are now circulating. Your club president has access to one that may be reproduced.
The new schedule provides a draw for the Amateur Division each week that the Open Division has a draw. Thus Amateurs will experience nearly twice as many draws next season. On the bright side, new partners may become good friends.
