[quote]What and how do they figure travel pay? [/quote] Each association is different, but I believe the going rate is 25 cents/mile from a central meeting point, I could be mistaken. Since we travel as a crew, it either goes to the driver or the white hat....

re: LHSAA/LHSOA impasse - davis818
Asking for a $5 raise to offset rising expenses is not trying to make it a full time job. And yes I do know people in the softball and baseball world that try to make it into one by travelling all across the country to call. This is not the issue. And you want good refs? Get out there with us and h...

re: LHSAA/LHSOA impasse - davis818

re: You ever disagree with the referees on the field? - davis818
I wish I would have gotten involved in it a lot sooner than I did. Been calling nine years now. Our association is hurting. We have enough people to cover around 10-12 games on a Friday night, but there are some weeks that we have 15 games scheduled....

And then thought that you could do better? Now's your chance. We need officials statewide, especially in Southwest Louisiana. [img]http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn255/davis818/recruitmentflyer060714-revision4.jpg[/img]...
