The Special Olympics World Games are coming to Los Angeles! From July 24 to August 2, 2015 over 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will compete in what will be the world's largest sporting event of 2015. 

The application to serve as a Technical Official for Table Tennis is currently available and will be until October 31, 2014. Please apply early and spread the word to any interested colleagues! The application can be accessed directly by the following URL:

Receiving this invitation reminds me of the time that I participated in the event in the early 1990's when it was held in New Haven, CT at Yale University. I had a great time at the event, even though I needed to commute to the venue on a daily basis. I hope that many of you will commit to this worthwhile event.
