MODIFIED SEASON IS HERE
With the beginning of the Modified season starting, it is important that we refresh our knowledge of the Modified rules. There have been some changes, so make sure you look them over carefully. As with any game, make sure you are contacting your partner at least 24 in advance of your game.
CAN NYS BE FAR BEHIND?
Several states have stepped up and drafted legislation to hand out consequences for spectators, players, or coaches who threaten officials. Indiana looks to be the most recent.
A girl's High School Varsity game was called with :42 seconds remaining after a fan throws a water bottle at an official.
Here is another example of how unpredictable our jobs can be from night-to-night.

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.
