Here are the first two write-ups for the Chatham teams. CHS vs HHS.
Excellent. Much better than the "Star Ledger's" and the robo-written NorthJersey.com's. Did you girls' ref advise you of his expected late-arrival? You could have had your boys' ref alternate boys' and girls' saber and foil while the coaches did epee until he arrived. His ratings are F7/E7 which is standard format. Your fencer had not only a conflict of interest but isn't authorized to ref scholastic meets.
We were notified by our assigner that the earlier 4 PM meet and traffic could cause a delay. It turned out to be a more significant delay than expected. Thanks, I've worked hard on my template to make the write-ups something worth reading and engaging without being laborious. It can be shortened to a bare minimum for anyone that wants to publish and spend a lot less time writing, essentially a plug and play format. I am working this season to include the best action pictures we can get and include descriptions that place the picture in the context of the narrative to help the reader get drawn into the story.
Overall, I was happy and impressed with the referee performance of my athlete. He worked very hard to keep his focus on impartial and correct referee calls for the action in front of him. Honestly, it is my opinion that he deserved half the pay for doing half the work. It was really above and beyond the call of duty and a great service to both teams.
