Greetings MWFOA members,
A few notes to keep you updated on what’s been going on with our Association this past month.
Board meeting rescheduled for May 6
The Board has been meeting regularly this off-season, and will continue to do so. If you have items that you feel the Board should consider, please don’t hesitate to forward them to your Member-at-Large, David Rockhold at firstname.lastname@example.org . Our next Board meeting has been rescheduled for May 6, 2017.
MWFOA member on the mend
Long-time MWFOA/CFOA member Ralph Gotta suffered a stroke this past April. He is in good spirits and Ralph says he is moving around “as fast as he was before,” albeit with the aid of a cane for now. Ralph is hoping that some needed rest over the summer will allow him to return to the football field this fall. Whatever his role, the MWFOA will be glad to have Ralph around next season, and the Board is excited to hear that he is on the road to full recovery.
Spring football has arrived
Believe it or not, there are opportunities to officiate football games in the spring! MWFOA members have been working NNFL (National Nineman Football League) games in April, and we hope to grow our relationship with this league in the future to give our members a chance to earn money and get more officiating experience in the off-season.
In addition to the NNFL, MWFOA members Andrew Pool, David Rockhold, and Aaron Seifer got the opportunity to work a spring scrimmage for Western Oregon University’s football team, and have the opportunity to officiate games this spring/summer for the PFL (Pacific Football League) in Hillsboro.
Great officiating turf shoes on clearance at multiple stores
While this newsletter is not intended to become an advertising site for specific businesses, I would be remiss if I didn’t pass this information along to the membership. Two online retailers have placed the Reebok Zig Referee Shoes on clearance for good prices. These shoes originally retailed for $100, but are now being offered by Honigs (select sizes only) for $29.95 and Purchase Officials Supplies for $69.99. Great shoes at a great price!
Hope you have a great May – keep an eye out for new recruits – bring on the sunshine! J
