The CAT Senior Open on December 15-17 has been approved as an N2/N3 Qualifying Meet. Bruce Ludwig is the Meet Referee, and Jackie Allender is the Administrative Referee. Posted elsewhere on this site (www.oregonswimming.org) you will find a Request for Evaluation form specifically for this meet. All persons wishing to be evaluated for N2 or N3 must complete this form. If you wish to be evaluated for Chief Judge, Starter, Referee or Administrative Referee you must submit this form directly to Bruce Ludwig no later than December 1, 2006. The form indicates an e-mail address and a fax number that can be used to submit the request. Request for Evaluation for Stroke & Turn Judges are preferred in advance, but may be accepted on deck if evaluation slots are available. The number of evaluation slots is limited. The actual number is dependant upon the mix of certification levels for which evaluation is requested and the number of evaluators available. All persons wishing to be evaluated for advancement to N2 or N3 must work all four sessions on Saturday and Sunday. Referee Trainees may request assignment to fulfill their prelims/finals training obligation by contacting Bruce Ludwig personally. Space is limited for Referee training assignments.
All officials are welcome and encouraged to work this meet, even if evaluation is not requested. However, to be considered for assignment as Chief Judge, Starter, or Referee a Request for Evaluation must be used. Simply write on the form "No Evaluation Requested." Officials requesting evaluation will be given priority in making assignments for these positions.
This meet will be a training meet for officials, and is guaranteed to be fun to work. Newer officials should NOT be intimidated by this process as the meet will be a good experience for all.
See you on Deck! BL
