Over the summer I was having a conversation with a longtime assignor who was working on logistics for a youth, high school and post-collegiate tournament. The officials are always provided a space in the vendor area at this event to talk to people about rules, officiating, the game or just make people aware that officials are human and not just blind robots wearing zebra stripes.

What this assignor wanted was some flyers that they could pass out to people that stopped by the tent. They wanted to try and recruit them to be officials.

By the time I’m done giving thanks, your turkey is cold, the gravy has congealed, children are crying, and at least one of your elders has fallen asleep.
