from the USAG's BBS:


Kathy Scanlan has a widely established reputation for excellence in
leadership and management of complex organizations.  She has extensive
experience in budget development and control, project-direction and
government relations.  Scanlan has worked for government, non-profit
organizations and private industry.

In the fall of 1993, Scanlan became a principal in the consulting firm
of Scanlan, Sorensen & Potter, Inc. where her clients have included
the City of Seattle, the Business Alliance Against Poverty, The
Seattle Aquarium, the American Zoo Association and World Cup USA.

Immediately before forming the consulting firm, Scanlan served as the
Executive Director of the World University Games Buffalo '93 where she
was responsible for the overall management of an international
sporting competition which included 6,000 athletes and officials and
over 1,400 international media.  Scanlan oversaw a $34 million budget,
160 full time staff and almost 20,000 volunteers.  She was hired just
10 months before this massive event and effected a remarkable
turnaround for the local organization committee.

>From 1990-1992, Scanlan served as Executive Vice President of the
Seattle Supersonics, directing business operations for the Seattle
National Basketball Association franchise.  She served as liaison with
the City of Seattle and other government entities and was responsible

the development of long term facility needs for the franchise.

Scanlan served as Executive Vice President of the Seattle Organizing
Committee for the 1990 Goodwill Games from 1988-1990 and was
responsible for the overall presentation of the 17-day international
athletic competition, the Goodwill Arts Festival and the Goodwill

million, with 490 employees and 10,000 volunteers operating in seven
jurisdictions across the state of Washington.

>From 1974-1988 Scanlan worked in various capacities for the City of
Seattle.  Starting as budget analyst for the Office of Management for
the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department from 1977 to the fall of
1980.  From 1980 to July, 1982 Scanlan was Business and Operations
Manager for the Woodland Park Zoo supervising maintenance, admissions
and zookeeper staff.  From July 1982 until April, 1988 when she joined
the Goodwill Games, Scanlan served as Deputy Director of Seattle
Center, a year round 74 acre cultural, recreational and entertainment
facility for the Seattle region which included the Seattle Center
Coliseum, the Seattle Opera House and other major public assembly

I spoke to a reporter in Minnesota today, and she told me that Kerry Huston
continues to improve, and apparently has regained more use of his limbs.  She
was not sure, but he may have been up and walking a little.

If I hear more, I'll post.

The NCAA Men's East Regional field will include teams from:

Ohio State
Penn State
(and possibly one other team?)

The Minnesota men (which includes 2 US national team members) did not
qualify, but 3 individuals; Brian Yee (US team), Bo Haun (US team) and Brian
Ottenhoff did qualify as individuals.

Why?  Unless you're a specialist (and even they need some variety), I
would always try to keep your training moving.  Try to hit at least two
or three events a day.  It may prove to be frustrating to spend too long
on a single event.

Well, some things take longer.  For example, one day you'll have to put
together all those tumbling tricks into a floor routine that hits all the
corners, etc, etc.  Other "routine construction" can be complicated too
("oops, no more bars left - guess I need something that goes backward, or a
change of direction!")

Other days, you'll be "Really close" to something, and want to spend all
day taking that final step.

Other days, things will be going so badly that you give up after the first
event you try.

I did say "once in a while".  I think you think that's more often than I do.
