First of all let me say this. Once again I open mouth and later inserted brain. I had no right to support anyone
"as a National Head Referee". I was apparently speaking from the heart. I want everone to know that I am in total
support of the BCA Referee Program and will not take sides with any force. Where this thing will go, I don't know, but I expect every referee that signed up to work this tournament be present. We as a group have a job to do in Vegas and we will do it to the best of our ability. Once this years tournament is over I think everyone needs to look at where this thing will go. It wan't that many years ago that the referee program was restructured, so that billiards could be played in the olympics. I'm not going to elaberate on that, but if thats the case than how does the BCA sell the Referee Program with the league program? I have been an active force with the referee program since 1993, and it just bothers me to see good people with the same intentions split apart.
Hope to see everyone in Vegas.

Change can be good.

Bill Butler
BCA Head Referee
