    And I went through the trouble of re-recording this using my cell phone where we could get audio in both channels and I forget to put the name in.

    Under Armour Clothing

    From my understanding UA does not produce much of their own items they contract out to others. For example the catcher gear is rebranded All-Star Sports equipment.

    2018 POE

    In some regards I agree to keep it simple. However if I remember correctly (and I haven't worked HS in NC in many years) they were requiring us to cover sportsmanship. So in some cases it may be a requirement.

    On top of of that managing 800ish people in one room was a nearly impossible task.

    Things weren't too bad. We lost power a few times briefly. It started out as heavy rain and fierce wind. About midnight it switched over to snow. The winds were crazy we lost a couple of trees. Overall about 6" of accumulation there were a couple of areas in my yard that was up to my knees, but the area behind some thick trees the grass was still peeking through. My creek froze over, but it looks really cool.

    @LineyNinja definitely register and attend. You will learn a lot. Many of my groups require you to attend the training to work at the collegiate level period.

    Thigh Protection

    I didn't care for the McDavid hexpads as they were not true compression and I didn't want yet another layer.

    Quick Tip Videos

    I have a couple more that are coming out with only 1 channel of audio. I've spent too much effort trying to correct the issue including duplicating the existing audio and adding it to a second channel, but no luck. I intended on knocking out 3-4 videos over the weekend as my goal is to have a surplus which will carry me over for when the season heats up (One month from today my season begins !!!!) I have new equipment on order which should be in this week.

    It was a little overrated for our area. But the wind was pretty crazy.

    So even with my video editing software no dice. My webcam only records in mono so I just bought a new one that is both stereo and can do 60 FPS at 1080p. So I have a couple more which are already recorded with the old one but new ones will be recorded with this hopefully that will help.

    Blizzard Warnings

    And these aren't Dairy Queen Blizzards unfortunately... For many of you this is not anything, but Blizzards in Northeast North Carolina are very few and far between. Over a typical winter we will have 1-2 brief stints of sub-zero temps but nothing sustained and we'll get a snow with an inch or less of accumulation maybe every other year. The Weather Channel is calling for 4-7 inches plus wind gusts of up to 50 MPH and whiteout conditions. And depending on which of the local stations you watch we could be getting up to 20" of snow. We have had some snow storms in the past and in 2001/2002 we got a couple of feet but not combined with 50 MPH winds. The last blizzard I recall was in the early 1980's and we actually got over 3 feet and I remember a snow drift actually building on the side of my house where we could walk up it and onto our roof.

    @rzanew so you got a corrupt download along the way somehow. You can clear your cookies, temp internet files and such should fix it otherwise each time you see it funky do the hard refresh.

    Safe or Out

    All of the above... The first thing I noticed was that the umpire went to a spot "X" when the ball was put into play. I don't believe he ever saw the ball coming and read it was off line to anticipate the play and make any adjustment.
