Hello All,

I'm in my first year of officiating. My chapter uses the Assign By Web program for assigning games. Unfortunately, I haven't received any from them.

Can anyone tell me how you would go about asking the assignors for work? I don't want to piss them off... I know I'm not going to get a lot of games, but I'd like to get some exposure. I've been working Fresh/JV and Middle School, outside of the chapter. But, that's only when someone gave back those games.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks,

My suggestion would be to let them know that you are available if they need you at any time. From time to time I let my Commisioner know that and when he calls me for extra stuff, I make sure I am available!

As an assignor for High School and observer for
college conference, I would suggest to let your assignor know
your status (1st year), be honest. If you get a call
from the assignor, take the game no matter what level,
don't wine about the travel, pay, teams invloved, etc.
Games will come, work hard to improve.

Definitely wait to have a glass until you get home from the game.

Call him and leave a Musical Message to the tune of Johnny Cash's, "I Walk the Line"......

I keep a close watch on the Division Line
I keep my eyes wide open all the time.
I show up one hour before it's time,
Because you're sublime,
I'll Ref any time!

I wear black socks and shoes......never blue
I sweep the court up when the game is through
Yes, I'll admit I'm a fool for you
Never been convicted for a crime,
I'll Ref any time!

As sure as Visitors are dark and Home is light
I Ref anytime, day or night
Calling 8 games in a day is a delight
I'll take you out to dine,
I'll Ref any time!

I've got $20 to make your wallet wide
I'll even give your cousin a free ride
I keep a spare Fox 40 by my side
I'll never drop a dime,
I'll Ref any time!

JCrow, is this what you do when you are not working games? I wouldn't quit my day job, if I were you.

Sorry brian134

My wife is a professional writer, and not a tech writer, and she thinks he is really good.

I'm a lonely man......all day long people whack me with screwy problems at work....nobody will eat lunch with me because all I talk about is Basketball and Golf......so at lunch hour, I sit alone at my desk in front of the computer and attempt to cheer myself up.

Had a big Meeting today with vendors trying to market a new product to my company. One guy says,

"You look like Joe Jones in our Sales Department."

I said, "I bet Joe doesn't date much."

Use a glass?!

Just drink straight from the bottle.

You are right, you are lonely.

Wine makes you fine
Old Duke makes you....

Yeah, but I wouldn't recommend trying it. More than a 26 year gap for me on that stuff. Yesterday's vintage today.

Dear 26 Year Gap....just made it to 22 myself. I think there is definitely some brain damage from years past.
