Tim Pfennig and I will be leaving tomorrow for Orlando, Florida for the annual AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) convention.
While attending the convention, we will also take part in a meeting of Pac 10 Equipment Managers meeting.
Most of the division I equipment managers around the country will be attending the convention. All of the major vendors will be at the convention doing exhibits. One of the major exhibits will be all of the new Nike gear for 2010 season. It will be the first, and only real close look at the new shoe styles. Our order will be due next month, so it is very important to be able to get a look at the shoes.
It is good to see all the new field equipment, especially when our coaches are there to see it too so they can let us know what will work best for them.
We will return next Tuesday evening.
