I have been watching this thread for awhile now, and not made a post. I'm going to say this in hopes of trying to prevent anymore animosity within our state and hopefully make steps for compromise in the future. The Rule put into place in January saddens me beyond what most can understand. However bickering about it and making personal attacks will not help the situation (Pam is not looking at this site she just hears what others say and her own opinion). With that said,
I think we should not discuss the TOC in the Kansas Forum anymore. It seems like every time we do, instead of trying to resolve problems both sides make personal attacks that fail to help resolve the issue. What has happened is done and the next generation will have to try and persuade KSHAA to change its policies. Until there is a change in the majority opinion of the powers that be this issue will never go away. All we can do is hope that Kansas teams in the future will try as we did, more diplomatically I suppose, to try and change it.
(There is not a favorable view of those of us who support the TOC because of the anger we have developed by not being allowed to go. The aggression back and forth from both sides only pushes progress backwards)
