What to do in case of lightning?

         Always use the 30/30 rule.

         Some schools have lightning detectors that go off when there is lightning.

         If the detector gives the ok signal 15 minutes later, you still have to wait for 30 minutes.

         Some coaches might argue that the storm is 30 miles away, and that you can start the game.

         Tell the coach you have to wait the full 30 minutes from the last lighting incident. 

         And if lightning is detected 25 minutes later, you have to wait another 30 minutes.


What do I do if I have not received payment for a game?

        If you are not paid within two weeks of the game, contact the bookkeeper of the school.

        If you are not paid within two weeks of talking with the school, contact Glenn Golba.


What do I do if I want more game assignments?
