Elo is expecting to receive the tickets to the Dynamo opening game in mid-April. Since the next meeting is May 10 and the game is May 12, an alternative method of delivering the tickets may need to be explored.

High school playoffs are under way. There are Regional semifinals and finals at Humble and Deer Park this weekend.
In a recent MLS match, a goal scored from a corner kick was disallowed. The kick was played to an attacker who had been over the goal line when the kick was taken and came back on to the field to play the ball. The referee ruled offside.
There was a general discussion of various game situations, both experienced and witnessed. These included high school playoff situations, how to deal with coaches and spectators, and how coaches might handle lopsided matches.
There was a discussion of how experience can aid in developing referee intuition, an ability to anticipate and "know" what needs to be done without consciously analyzing things first.
Bill led a discussion on FFPS and how it differs from USSF soccer. (He is helping coach.)
The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
