    Corey,

    There isn't a quick or easy solution for grounds. The availability of workers and judges is something that can be improved.

    I was motivated to start this thread because judges I...

    New handlers and those (like you) getting back into the game are being hurt the most by the new rules. We still consider you a member and hopefully a worker for Black Warrior. Your...
