The competitions and the so-called ID programs run by Region 1 have become a joke.

Too bad to have someone who spent so much time and energy into building up a program, but then, ultimately, might have contributed to its fallout.

That said, how weak have all the other state reps become by allowing it to happen. There should have been a rotating directorship and a mandatory change of venue for each region 1 championship spread equally across. Of all places to hold such a tournament, to choose URI two years in a row amounts to ludicrousness and evidence that all others on the BOD knew what was happening.......and just simply let it happen.

In addition, depending on the extent of the fraud, you can't help but wonder who the heck is auditing their books. It's a big enough organization that there should have been checks and balances. We're not talking about a one-man operation here. Credibility gone unless they clean the entire house out.

USYSA might be satisfied with the outcome but I think the state police and IRS might not be ready to call it a day. Even in RI, there are laws against stealing.

I work in RI. Application of such laws depends entirely on who is doing the stealing.

Doesn't matter, the reach is too vast. Outside counsel and forensic auditing will land him in jail.

Hope so. Stealing from a youth organization is pretty low, even by RI standards
