“The Brainstorm at the Lake,” MACA’s annual conference, hit the Inn at Grand Glaize in Osage Beach on September 26-27, and was declared a success. The day featured a variety of breakout sessions, a “new” president in the morning, and an election of a vice-president in the afternoon. Coach of the Year awards went to four top coaches, and member-emeritus Troy Kinast won the Carol Farmer Founders Award. One karma-charmed member won a new ZeeCraft buzzer system, donated by the ZeeCraft people.
Stacy Schroeder, Associate Executive Director of the Missouri State High School Activities Association, has announced that the MSHSAA has moved the date that the Scholar Bowl online rules review becomes available from the originally scheduled date of Friday, October 1 to Monday, October 4. The rulebook packets are being shipped on Wednesday, September 29 and people really need to have the rulebook in hand before they do the rules review. MSHSAA anticipates that more coaches will have them in hand if they post the review on Monday.
