No mention anywhere on the National website of any of the other events or the results of them. I am extremely disappointed in ESSFTA’s information on the National events. I guess that the participants in those other events, who cannot travel to the National really don’t count. Though I enjoy watching confirmation and have participated in it, I do not enjoy watching 5 minutes of it unless I want to pay for a pass that does not include any other venues. There is more to Springers than beauty!!Reply ESSFTA on July 14, 2017 at 11:07 am Hi Marilou, I understand your frustration. As webmaster, I don’t have any say in how the event is presented, but I will forward your concerns to the Board of Governors. -KimReply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
