Introducing the new CEDA forums

Greetings,

I am happy to announce that thanks to the labors of Jeff Jarman, we have rebuilt and resigned an important aspect of the CEDA website, the forums section. These have been modeled after the successful approach at Crossx.com and they offer us an opportunity to provide an organized way for our community to communicate. Forums are available for tournaments, regional issues, questions of community practice, organizational questions and a lot more.

Kicking off the 2009-10 Season

Although many of us opened the season at Gonzaga last weekend, for a number of schools this coming weekend is their opening competition. This has been a difficult year for many in our community. The new season brings sadness with those no longer with us, but it also provides a new start.

On behalf of CEDA let me wish you all the best for a great season. We are excited to have such a timely topic and one that promises to make for a compelling year of debates.

I also wanted to highlight a few items.
