Tad has helped me with over 500 meets and has already done at least 5 meets completely on his own so I have no doubts he can handle any meet we do. But a meet director needs to sit in the Captain's Chair for a while and weather a few storms to be able to call himself a true Captain. The time has come for Tad and Devin to rise to that level. NASA will continue for MANY years to come as I have documented every scenario for these boys and have trained them very well. The training is complete now comes the practical experience.
An NO, I am not retiring from PL. LOL. Don't even think of starting that rumor. Unless I win the Lottery I have no plans to retire in the distant future. I plan to around until at least I hit over 2,000 meets which is at least 5 years and then and only then I'll simply cut back on some of MY meets. I am simply letting the boys spread their wings and grow.
