We always have a great mat setup the night before. We also had a good group of new referees “learning the ropes” thanks to the clinic held by Don Flagg.  We missed Jamie Blake and wish her a speedy recovery.

I look forward to seeing you all at the upcoming Feb. 26 Konan Invitational at MSU. Please register your emails at the Konan/JAM website so you can get updates sent to you.
