Our apologies.

IWP is sorry for cutting the zoom call with USA Water Polo’s Matt Farmer short this afternoon.  We apologize for the interruptions and disruptive behavior of some of the participants.  We appreciate Matt’s professionalism and all those active, respectful, and interested participants, but as we were unable to fully curb a few unruly participants, the meeting had to be ended earlier than we had hoped.  While we plan on having more zoom meetings in the future on a variety of topics, we will looking further into the technology and implementing much better controls for when we try this again.
