Weekly Bull 11/9/22

San Diego Youth Football Fund – Thank you to our amazing Association Officials who continue to provide funds for the San Diego Football Community.  Because of your support, we are able to offer scholarships, assistance with medical emergencies, or replace stolen pop warner equipment like we did several years ago.  And a special “thank you” to our NFL and NCAA officials who donate generously to this fund each year.  Mike Downing and Mike Gunzelman will give us some final numbers in a future Bull.  I have heard that the Golf Tourney was quite successful!
 
Sportsmanship Award Winning Schools – This year, our youth fund will be providing a trophy, a banner for the gym, and a $1,000 check for the school’s football program, to the following schools who were selected by our crews this year:  Mar Vista, Santana, Hoover, Torrey Pines and St. Joseph’s Academy.  The presentation will be made at halftime of the Division I Championship game on Friday, November 25th at Southwestern College.
 
SDCFOA Make Up Meeting – Wednesday, November 9, 7:00 PM.  Join on-line using the zoom invitation below and we’ll cover some Weekly Bulletin topics and some video.  This will be a 1-hour meeting.  Please let me know if you are uncertain of your status. cooversteve@gmail.com.

Week #2 of the Playoffs – This year’s games are proving to be extremely competitive and exciting.  Work hard, prepare, and focus on every play.  One team advances, and one team ends their season so the stakes are extraordinarily high!  We must be at our absolute best on each play.  Work as a crew…then celebrate afterwards as a crew!
 
Playoff Game Fees This Week Round #2 – The CIF will be paying the referees for all rounds of the playoff (1st round through the Championship Game.  CIF will make payment to all officials, chain crew and timers via Ref Pay.  Here are the fees for this week’s games:
Referee                       $95
Other Officials          4 @ $93
 
Wilson Football – Wilson footballs (any type of Wilson football) must be used every snap of the playoffs.
 
Playoff Film – Thank you for your patience as you can understand that teams are not as motivated to take the time and share film with us.  Sorry.
 
Special Discount for Football Officials Courtesy of CIF – As you know, the CIF and schools are selling tickets exclusively on-line.  So, instead of discount $5 passes, the CIF will be offering the SDCFOA officials not working a game, a special discount code when you order your tickets on-line.  The code will be included in our next Weekly Bull.
 
Alex Spanos All-Star Game – The Alex Spanos All-Star Game will be held on Saturday December 10th at 4:00pm at Mira Mesa High School.  Mark your calendars to watch this year’s crew in this special event.  The crew will be made up of officials who were selected (by Tom Ables and our current and incoming presidents to work a semifinal or final) who lost their game due to the need to add officials from the Imperial Valley to work a semifinal or final.  Our agreement with CIF and Imperial Valley officials, is to blend crews working games between Imperial Valley and SD schools for all semifinals and finals.  So officials who might lose a game might be selected to work the all-star game if you’re interested and available.
 
7-Official Mechanics Workshop – Wednesday, November 16th at 7:00 pm via Zoom for all on-field officials who are working a CIF 7-Official Semifinal or 7-Official Final.  No timers or chain crew members need to attend.  We have two 7-person crews working this week, and they are meeting on their own.  Stephen Coover is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
