I notice in the Oregonian that FSN is running a game or two of whichever Washington Tournament is happening this week. If I pay my neighbor to tape them for me (I don't have cable), will I see one or two of you Forum-ers? Which one(s)?

Ron Pilo is working the girl's side of the 4A tourney. He's a regular here. He's a pretty darn good official so it wouldn't surprise me if he made it to the final game.... but figuring out what the tournament evaluators are looking for (in the refs for the final game) is always a crap shoot so who knows.

Actually, I got the call at 11:15PM last night. I will be working the final at 7:00pm on Saturday with a fellow official from Vancouver (Dave Christel) Looking forward to the game. It will be on TV. Hee Haw.

I'm not surprised Ron. Don't forget that e-mail I sent you telling you that I expected to see you on TV Saturday night. Can't wait to watch! Congratulations and much deserved.

P.S. Lucky you for the "early" 11:15 time. My call last week at 3A came at 1:30 AM thanks to an overtime game. :-(

Ron's game will be on Fox Sports Northwest at 6 PM Saturday night followed by the Boy's 4A game at 8 PM.

Congrats Ron.

I had the opportunity to watch Ron last in his game last night. He did a great job, and will represent his association and our forum well. He is a class act.


Ron... Do you know who made the semi's for the girls side and who made the Semi's and Finals on the Boys side?

I don't know who from Seattle will work any other games. Glenn Lampman the caller needed to make other calls and didn't elaborate.......

P.S. Did you introduce yourself to Phil yesterday.........???

I did, we talked for about 5 minutes, he gave me his card, and said he would let me know when his tryout camp would be.

Nice Job Ron! I'll be looking forward to seeing you on the ol' tube Saturday night.
Thanks also to zebramann for giving us the Channel and times for the games.

RD
P.S. Ron, did you get a chance to say Hi to Ralph Erath on the Boys side? Also Larry Lizotte on the girls side?

Have a good game, Ron. Any chance it'll be carried on Fox Sports New Enland? Probably not. We'll end up with yet another hour of the Worst Dang Sports Show Ever. Bleh

Thumbs up

Ron - congrats. I'll try to catch the game on the tube, although I'm not sure if I can. I have to wash my socks.

Oregonian is showing "Washington High School 4A Basketball Final" at 8 pm and I can't tell if it's boys or girls, and then at 10 pm is listed "Wash HS BBall (JIP)", which I assume means Joined in Progress. I'll just have my neighbor tape the whole she-bang, and watch it on Sunday.
