Next Major Referee Assignment
v. FC Montreal

Today's FIFA Laws of the Game extract
Law 11 - A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of his team, he is, in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by: - interfering with play or - interfering with an opponent or - gaining an advantage by being in that position
Yeah, it's been a few months since I've last updated this and I think it's time to get back into it. Obviously a LOT has happened since April and I don't think I'll be able to remember them all. So I'll just have to start with recent history.
First Refereeing: I was appointed as 4th official in an International Friendly between AS Roma (Serie-A, Italian team) and the Montreal Impact. There were 20,801 fans in the stands and the atmosphere was electric. It really was a highlight of my career and bests the crowd of 11,000 when I ref'd the Impact against the Haiti National team a couple years ago.
I have also been appointed to the Saputo Coupe du Quebec in mid-September, which pits the best AAA teams of the province as they try to become the provincial champions.
The next tournament a couple weeks later is the Over-35 National Championships. This tourney will take place in Trois-Rivieres. I've never been to the Over-35 tournament so I'm looking forward to that.
And then finally, I got my invitation to the Senior National Championship in St John's, NL which happens at the beginning of October. With the Seniors and the Over-35's, I will have done every level of Nationals except for the U14s - which won't exist next year anyway...
Now onto LLO: We've had some issues with the school that we normally perform at and we've been forced to look for a new venue to host our productions. We've got a couple of leads and we're just waiting for some approvals in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, that will go through and this won't be a thing to worry about. The Open House happens in a few weeks and then that's followed by the auditions. before that, there will be a couple of meetings. So the season is about to get underway.
Because of a re-zoning with the School Board, both kids have been transferred to a new school. Their school starts in 3 weeks, with little "L" starting Kindergarten and "W" entering grade-2. They're both looking forward to it and it's exciting to see them grow up and turn into little people.
And as far as work goes, it's moving along really nicely. Things are fitting into place and I'm becoming more and more comfortable. There is still a LOT to learn but I feel I've got the base now to be able to learn them. Managing a department is a whole new experience and, as far as I know, it's going well. No personality conflicts and everything seems to be going well.
Hopefully, it won't be another 4 months until the next update...
