Jun 16 2013 To all my Basic Skills friends, a quick explanation that is long overdue.  I'm so sorry i've not been taking pictures the past several competitions - its ABSOLUTELY not because i don't care about you - i'm heartbroken about this - but USFSA has forbidden me from taking pictures at competitions i judge at.  I haven't said anything previously because i've been hoping for a reprieve but it now looks pretty final. They have reasons that make a certain amount of sense, but i think its very sad anyhow. So please know its not because i don't think you're important, or that i don't care any more.  I really do, but i'm not allowed to do it.
