CFOA Historical Items Needed
The CFOA is in the process of collecting historical items like old patches, equipment, pictures, letters, articles, etc. The intent is to have a simple CFOA historical display to be present at the annual meeting, banquet, beach week, and special training sessions (meetings). CFOA members and others will be able to observe and know more about CFOA history in sports officiating.
If you have any interesting items that may be historical regarding the CFOA or officiating, contact Chuck Pula at 386-333-9393 or e-mail.
