Umpires Camp
From what I understand most of the umpires were positive towards it.
It did make the olympic's longer than normal - so that was a little harder, but it helped get over jetlag.

Just as a side comment:
Has anyone seen the Umpiring Website that is being developed ?
Got to: www.homepage.mac.com/hockeyumpire
It is in its very raw and early stage as yet, but I will be very interested in seeing how it develops and comes together.
