SAN DIEGO COUNTY FOOTBALL OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION - THE WEEKLY BULL – December 20, 2019
Make Up Meeting Tonight – If you need a final meeting or to take an exam so that you will be eligible for the 2020 draft, come to Challenger MS at 7:00 pm to make up a missed meeting. The meeting requirement is 9 meetings (banquet and clinic both count as a meeting each) plus pass the mechanics and rules test. I’ve emailed each member of the association that is deficient in meeting the requirements. If a one-year waiver is necessary, that letter/email of explanation needs to be sent to me asap.
CIF Seminfinals (Friday Night) – These will be some of the most exciting and competitive games of the 2019 season. Our officials have all attended a special workshop in preparation for their 7-man crew assignments led by Clay Reynard Jr. (PAC12), Chris Wiggins (PAC12), Steve Hoslett (Mountain West), Brian Bortness (SCIAC), Ron Gillenberg (SCIAC) and Don Carey (Retired NFL). We are ready for the challenges we will face as our crews are being led by some of our most outstanding referees/leaders! Go out and support them and enjoy one of these games. Check in Arbiter, your local paper, the internet, or the CIF website for games and times. Remember, no passes are accepted.
Open Division Finals (Saturday Night) – 7:00 pm at Southwestern College. We will have our usual seating on the 3rd level (parking lot level) of the stadium in the south endzone. Parking is $10. Please join us as we cheer on the following crew!

Final Instructional Video – Tonight I will be sending out a final Instructional Video for the 2019 season. I may continue to periodically share videos in the post-season and off-season. I hope you’ve found them informative and helpful in your work. We will continue to amend and/or enhance how we use instructional video in the future, so if you have any ideas to improve our services to the membership please feel free to contact me. I will also be provided suggestions from the Association Survey to help guide our improvement efforts.
