Assignments for Gem State Challenge and league matches for October 7 – October 13 have been published. Because this is a tournament week, it is vital that you check your schedule immediately. Please do not make any assumptions about whether you have assignments or not.

Yes, there are league matches on Saturday and Monday through Friday and we still need lots of help filling them. Tomorrow it will get even worse because FC Nova is adding 13 games to their schedule from the smoke out date. Please check the list on Monday to see all the newly available games and help out if you can.

There are still tournament games available for Saturday and Sunday. As soon as I had completed the assignments I had two referees bail out of the tournament. At this point, you don’t have to be registered for the tournament to get any of these assignments. Just let me know which ones you want.

Please see the list of available assignments on Arbiter or at https://idahoassignor.org/available-assignments/ .

Tournament rules can be found at https://usys-assets.ae-admin.com/assets/977/15/GemState_Rules2017.pdf .

Yes, there is a tournament meeting. It will be a YouTube live broadcast on Tuesday, October 4 at 8:30 PM. All referees are expected to watch the live broadcast or view the replay prior to the tournament. View at https://youtu.be/dA8t_TLLlVc .

If you have questions that aren’t answered in the live broadcast, please ask. Don’t assume you know the answer.

Thanks. Have a great week!
