Board Report: Craig Olson.
a. Heard two appeals, including the Chief Sealth appeal. The WIAA board upheld the Sea-King decision. Also heard a B-E appeal of a forfeiture for playing an ineligible player. The WIAA upheld the District 1 ruling.
b. A committee met with the official’s associations to discuss the fees for contests. The association presented a request for some increases in order to entice more people to get into officiating by increasing the lower level fees. The board will set fees through 2008/09. The board is asking the association to report back on what the assigner’s fees are for each group. There is an attempt to standardize those additional costs. By 2007-08, the fees will be standard for all classifications.
c. The WIAA board also wants to discuss the Kickoff Classic and the goals of the event. Is the focus to highlight local high school sports, to raise funds for the WIAA, or a combination of both?
d. Jack would like to get together a meeting of all official’s association assignor’s for District 2. He will work with Marilyn to set up a date.
e. Craig handed out materials describing the logo requirements for state tourneys.
f. Craig also handed out a copy of the Mercer Island Code of Ethics for others to see.
g. He handed out several articles, including an article on a basketball “mercy rule”, one on how Oregon makes arrangements for contests and religious differences, and one on sports marketing by groups like the Army All Star game. These are things already going on and we need to consider whether we need to be involved or continue to avoid these events.
h. Jack raised the question about softball or baseball teams using team uniforms for post- season all-star contests. Craig will raise the question with the board, Gill will check with the person who put on the game. Jack will follow up as well.
