Assigners / Chapter Secretaries
If you are a secretary / assigner for a local high school chapter, small college, or other leagues (summer/spring leagues, etc.) send me an email ... [email protected]

Reason: I'm looking for input from assigners on how they schedule their games, what their biggest ongoing problems are, what technology they use, etc.

So you don't want emails from non-assignors complaining about how assigning is done locally? :D

No, but he'll take emails from assigners complaining about whiny officials who think they aren't getting enough good games. :D

Complaints about *how* it is done, or how you think it could be done better are fine.

Complaints that you are not getting enough games, etc., will be sympathized with and then summarily ignored.

If they tell you, they will have to kill you!

My biggest problem is officials who don't fill out their availabilities properly and decline assignments.

I think that speaks more about the assignor. Make it known that if the availability is not up to date, it will cost them the game you are trying to give them and their next highest level game. They will get the hint.
