"Wisconsin Refs" - 3 Person Question

What conferences in the State of Wisconsin use 3-Person officiating, at the high school Varsity level?

I am aware of the Big-8 and Southern Lakes. Are there others?

Rock Valley will allow you to use 3-person crew, if approved by both AD's and Commissioner. It is a game-by-game choice. However, it is pay 2 for 3. Some guys don't mind making $37 instead of $55 per game, to get that 3-person experience.

The following are similar to Rock Valley:
Central WI Conference
Marawood
Great Northern
Northern Lakes
WI Valley

I have not worked the Cloverbelt enough, nor did I ask about 3-person games in that Conference.

$70 ea and no mileage?
$55 ea and $45 mileage?
Hmmmmm?

Did your team split 3 ways and driver "eat" the costs?

Something like that.
Why are you laughing at me?

To me, it's an odd thing. I want to work 3 100% of the time, but I want a full game check for a full game's work.

In a 40-game season (a few left), I worked about 15 3-person games and was paid a full check for all but 2 (I'll work 3-for-2 with certain people once in a while and over the holidays or early in the season).

I won't play "mother-may-I" with coaches/ADs, either -- when I find out they want all kind of approval to do it, then they'll just get the 2 officials they were contracted.

In my last association JV games would occasionally be assigned three officials, but it was a 3 for 2 deal.

Here, there is a slight reduction in fee for 3, but it is not nearly as bad as 3 for 2. JV is $41 for 2, $35.50 for 3.

I believe that the 3 officials for 2 pay (the officials choice) is good to a point to expose the teams and AD to the benefits of having three officials. At the same time we can promote and get in the AD's ear about their conference going to 3 person.
