    The IHSAA Rules Interpretation Meeting is now available through the IHSAA Arbiter site.  The deadline for completion is August 16 and all officials on your crew must complete it if they expect to work the state tournament.  You can access the Rules Interpretation meeting directly on this page.  You will be prompted for your Arbiter ID and password when you click the link for the football meeting.

    Your tournament application is due September 5. You can begin your application August 15.  This should include adding your crew's updated schedule for 2012.  Part II testing will be August 27 - September 24.  Remember test scores play a part in your crew's overall rating so many associations are eliminating their test review meetings.
