The Interpretation meeting will be our first meeting of the season. The meeting will be held on November 7, 2016 at the Watertown Elk's Lodge at 7 PM. This is a MANDATORY meeting. If you can't attend this meeting, you must receive a make-up session, at a time to be determined by the Interpreter. There is also a $25 fee to make up the Interpretation.

60 SECONDS ON OFFICIATING
If you've never been to the website '60 Seconds on Officiating', I suggest giving it a look. The site is created and the content is maintained by officials Billy Martin, Tim Malloy, and Al Battista.
OFFICIAL IAABO SUPPLIER
IAABO Executive Director Top Lopes has asked all IAABO Boards to encouarge membership to purchase uniforms, gear, etc. from Honigs Whistle Stop (www.honigs.com). IAABO receives money from Honigs each year to be designated as our official supplier. As such, IAABO has been able to hold the line on any increase on our dues.
At this time, Honigs is offering a special on shirts with the IAABO emblem for all new officials at a cost of $21.00 per shirt.
If you are planning on purchasing IAABO gear, please consider using Honigs. I have used them in the past, and they provide a quality product at a competitive price. There is a permanent link on the left hand side of this page (Honigs Logo).
I have created a forum, accessible only to us, where we can have dialogue throughout the season. Talk about plays, talk about rules, or talk about politics. It doesn't matter what you talk about. There is a link on the left side of this page to the Ref Room. You must register with a username and password. I have to validate each and every member who registers on the site, therefore I am able to keep non-board members off the forum. I think this can be another valuable and useful tool. Please take advantage it. It's simple to use.
