2008 Chapter 52 Graduates Steve G., Scott J., Lynn, Kurt, Jay T., Michael Z., and Chris G. gave a whole weekend to classroom study of Aresti, IAC rules, and judging criterion.
Graduates and IAC members can take written judging exams on-line.
Thanks to Ray Rose for providing excellent instruction and sharing IAC history and judging line war stories.
Tim Wagner, manager of Greenwood Lake graciously provided the excellent classrom with great access to meals from the Blue Skies Cafe below. The Blue Skies had record demand for breakfast and lunch. Even so they took great care of us and the food was excellent. The Momento II Restaurant in nearby West Milford provided Italian cuisine and royal service for dinner on Saturday night.
Thanks to Miriam who was totally there all the way helping out, brought the coffee, and straightened-out our books.
The school, originally scheduled for February 23rd, was delayed one week due to a Friday blizzard and ice storm.
