On To The Next One...

This morning we woke up to head out for the next venue. Our flight departed at ten in the morning. CONCACAF organized for us to fly a charter flight from Long Beach, CA to Columbus, Ohio, along with the other referees that officiated the first two matches at the Home Depot. We also flew with the Jamaican national team and the El Salvador national team. I would like to comment on how well the Gold Cup has been in organizing our pick ups and departures. It was great not to go through two busy airports. The plane landed in Columbus and we just had to get off the plane and into the buses that were waiting for us on the tarmac near the airport. We arrived around five o'clock in the afternoon and went directly to the hotel. Now we just have to get adjusted to the new time zone and get ready for Tuesday's matches. I will be officiating Costa Rica vs Jamaica at 7pm on the 7th of July, while Terry will have the day off. Stay tuned for more as the first round of the 2009 Gold Cup continues!
