Hello everyone! On the day I submit this writing, we will have a month of events in the books with some major events coming up on the schedule. Hopefully everyone is adjusting to the rule changes well. know in the phone calls I have fielded; the indications have seemed to be much more positive than negative. Of course, there have been some questions, which was expected. The YouTube video that UKC released of Allen and I going in depth into each rule change has been a very helpful tool when talking to many folks. If you have access to a computer and havent seen it yet, it is well worth taking 20 minutes out of your day and giving it a listen. With the positive feedback we have received from this video, I envision more of this happening in the future. I think we can all agree that in some cases it is easier to hear something than to read and try to interpret it. It is not uncommon for two people to read the same exact sentence and draw two totally different interpretations from it. That is what makes the Advisor column and the video discussed above such valuable tools.
