Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? I’ve always spent a fair amount of time scrolling down the meet schedule to locate meets. It was a little cumbersome but before long I was pretty good at it. Then it was pointed out to me that I had been ignoring the little note above the search box at the upper right hand corner. It says: “Use the SEARCH BOX below to locate meets quickly.” I wish I had found it earlier. You can instantly pull up any NCS meet from 2007 to 2012 by simply typing in the sanction number, the city, all or part of the meet name, the host club, or even the meet director or meet referee – and it is really fast! I may never “scroll over” that list again.
