HUDL Video, By
Mistake – On Friday, Mar 11, I
received a video from either HUDL or some other source. I clicked on it and
played a few clips. The program said that I had to load it to my account
before I could play with it or make notes on it. Well lo and behold, when I
loaded it, it automatically sent the video to everyone on the officials or “athletes”
page as you are called. But wait, not just my officials; it sent it to every
official on that HUDL list. Hudl said that each
agent could not have an account by himself; Four Agents are sharing an
account. So it not only sent that video to all the Eastern Officials; I believe it sent
it to Bobby Pennington”s officials, Brad Allen”s officials and James Peyton”s
officials. My email was full with: “What am I suppose to do with this video
you sent me” inquiries.
Only Tried to Load
that HUDL Video to Play with it Myself, then send it to selected Officials of
our Eastern Association – I do
not remember clicking on anything when I was loading that video to send it to
anyone, much less everyone. I apologize.
For Now, Please
Disregard That HUDL Video you received from Me – I have not critiques that video nor am I going to until I can find
out what went wrong on this loading.
Please Disregard that HUDL Video you received from me on Friday.
EOA Golf Tournament
is Sat, May 17 – Our Golf
Tournament this year will be May 17 at Key Vista Country Club between Pink
Hill and Beulaville. There was a huge conflict with our original first Saturday
in May so we picked the first Saturday AFTER mother’s Day weekend. We will make up the teams
puting a very good golfer, a fairly good golfer,
and average golfer and a not so good golfer on each team. Then we play Superball
or as some call Captain’s Choice. That
method involves everyone hitting off the tee; then choosing the best drive
and everyone hitting their second shot from that same spot. Then you pick the closest ball on the green
and everyone putts from that same spot.
You play a lot of the shots of the Good Golfer, but this method gives
everyone including the not so good golfer a chance to contribute to the team.
We will tee off at 10:00am so you are asked to be there by 9:15 to 9:30 at
the latest. We give prizes to the
first place team and the second place team.
We also have a Pich Shootout, a Chip
Shootout and a Putting Shootout. Winner on the first place team and the
second place team are not eligible for the shootouts so we have a lot of
golfers winning prizes. We all play closest to the pin on all four Par 3
holes and a closest to the pin on the second shot on the last Par 5. And if there is a tie for First or Second,
we play it off on the course. We keep
you there as long as we can just hanging out with your fellow officials. It really is a fun day; the golf is
secondary. The cost is $ 40 and that
include Green Fee, Cart and Prize money. Hope you will join us. Deadline to enter is Friday, May 9 at
6:00pm. I will then make up the teams
and post them on the Web Page that week before the tournament.

Masters Pick Em Contest is IN Full Swing – The Contest is closed now but the 14 of us
that did enter are in a dog fight to the finish. All of us had good players that did not
make the cut and anyone can win. It
will go down to the wire Sunday and someone will sneak in the door. It is
fun, something to do and gives you a reason to watch the Tournament that
Tiger is not playing in for the first time in a while. Go to the TOMMY
MATTOCKS REFEREE Page on Facebook to follow us or

The New UNC-W Coach is
in His Office –
the new coach at UNC-W has arrived and is holding down his office in Trask Coliseum now. That means he is around now and
hopefully should make a decision on the Referee Camp that school has been
hosting every summer. We really expect
that decision to come sometime this week.
Stay tuned, we will announce the moment we know something.
Blow for One of the
Good Guys – We just found out
today (Sat, May 12) that our good friend Eddie Biedenbach
has not been retained by the new Coach. While all new coaches want a staff of
their own and usually of some friends they need to be loyal to for their help
along the way; we was really hoping Eddie would remain on the staff for at
least the first year. Eddie could have introduced him to a lot of people he
would need to know as well as many of our high school coaches. The new coach did not see it that way and
chose to bring in an all new staff. We
can only wish Eddie well as he must go in a new direction and we wish the new
Coach Kevin Keatts wells as he tries to rebuild
that UNC-W basketball program.
