"Opposite Table" Text

Can someone reply with a "copy and paste" of the text of the mechanic detailing the calling official going opposite table? I'm interested in the phraseology used by NCAA-M, NCAA-W, and the NFHS back in the early 2000's.
Thank you in advance.

We started going "opposite table" beginning with the 2005-07 NFHS Officials Manual. Anyone have the NFHS book prior to that? I'd like to see images of the wording for both 2- and 3-person.
Thanx in advance.

Any of You?

Anyone out there whose state has high school officials going "opposite table" after reporting?

True in 100% IAABO mechanics Connecticut for the occasional three person game.

In two person games we switch and the reporting official can end up anywhere.

But Freddy wants NFHS mechanics, and I can't help him with that.

If nobody has answered "yes" by now, I would think that means everyone who has read this thread goes tableside for 3-man in HS.

"Negative replies not required"...military thing that reduces unnecessary email traffic.

Any IAABO State (except MD), Ohio, and Louisiana switch opposite the table.

'Nough said.

Chiming in from Mass. here, an (almost) all-IAABO state.

We go opposite in three-whistle and opposite for free throws in two-whistle.

I found a couple of books.

Official's Manual, 1999-2002
Three Officials, Foul Switching Techniques
a. The official who calls the foul goes opposite the table
b. The opposite side official replaces calling official.
c. The third official remains in the same position occupied at the time the foul was called.

Same verbiage in 1997-1999 book.

If you (or anyone else) wants these books, let me know:
1997-1999 Official's Manual
1998-2000 Handbook
1998-1999 Simplified and Illustrated
1999-2001 Official's Handbook

Thanx, Bob!

I'll take the 1999-2002 NFHS Officials Manual.
Expect a PM from me with my mailing address.
Tell me how much you want for postage and the pain of having to mail it.
Thanx again!

You might as well take them all. It can't cost hardly any more to ship 4 instead of 1. (Unless someone else wants them and lets me know before I ship these)

You can pay either:

(a) exactly what it costs me to sen them. Let me know if you want first class or book rate (I can get you prices from work tomorrow).

or

(b) since searching for these books cause us to have to move, the cost of the movers. I'd estimate that at $5k - $10k.

First class for 1. The officials manual. If it's not appreciably more go ahead and put the other ones in there.

In Oklahoma we had been going opposite table in 2 person games, however, starting this year we will be going to the table, to be consistent with 3 person

Always Thank Bob

My thanks to Bob for sending me two NFHS Officials Manuals from just before and just after the turn of the century.
I had to pay his moving expenses to get him to mail them to me, but I guess it was worth it.
Thanx Bob!

You make it sound so ancient.
