Here's something to remember, everyone: If you go to a basketball officiating camp where there are 83 other referees whose experience is at a minimum several years of high-school work and you walk in with only three years of church league under your belt... you're going to look like an idiot.

While the other referees were busy fine-tuning higher parts of their craft, I was basically handed the Referee 101 book and started reading from the introduction. Everyone was very kind and very supportive, though, so I will give them all of the credit in the world for all of their positive feedback while I fumbled my way through three days of learning introductory mechanics like how to chop a clock and raise your arm when you blow your whistle.
