I went skiing with eddie kriel,
just the other day.

I HATE the PSIA!"
My dad brought him over from europe in the '60s to work at his school, where eddie's brother, peter, was the AD.
Eddie stayed with us, and used to pop his head into my bedroom at night, after i turned in (i was in the single-digit ages) , and say, in his new and broken english:
"SEEEE yu in ZEEE 'morgen-ing',
Eddie was always one helluva nice guy, and I find it encouraging that he still holds the PSIA with the same disdain shared by me, as even back in those days.....
I gave my PSIA pin to a beautiful east german girl who liked it back when i got my Austrian Lev. II... She was true athlete, even on her feet.
To this day the only instruction-association logo I wear is my Graubunden canton teaching license patch..no metal pins, they attract die blitzen....
