Welcome

Welcome to the brand new GRCOTFCC website.  Hopefully,  navigating this page is easy,  that's the goal.  If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact Bruce Quimby by clicking on the "contact" link.  I know the fonts are small on phones! 

Merrill Enterprises

The Merrill Enterprises links are now working.  My (BQ) bad for not updating them correctly.   They're now available through both the "Handy Links" and Documents" menu items.

 

Thanks to Matt Merrill for the logos.  You may recognize them from your shirts and hats.

 

COVID Vaccine 1B Qualification

As an interscholastic sports official you are deemed an "essential worker".   Therefore,  you fall into the 1B category for vaccination priority. 

The document attached to Tom's email is your proof of 1B Qualification.  It is not posted on the website for security reasons.   Feel free to print it out.  Please don't share it.  Contact the Executive Team for another copy (click on Contact above). 

 A couple of caveats: 

     
  1. Vaccination is NOT a requirement to officiate.  
  2.  
  3. Even if you are fully vaccinated you will need to follow CDC protocols when officiating.   CDC for Schools
  4.  
  5. Certified officials who have opted out for this season can still use this instrument.
  6.  
 

Phones and Tablets

I've done my best to make this as responsive (phone friendly) as possible.  It should respond to anything Apple or Android.  Please let me know immediately if you get a bad experience on your device.  If the fonts are too small on your device try turning it to the landscape position. 

General Browser and Computer Advice

If you're running on a 5 year or older browser it would be a good thing to get an upgrade,  especially if you're doing a lot of online shopping,  banking or anything that involves your finances.  Stay safe out there! 

Little Girl

Our future!  If anyone knows who this little girl is I'd like to get the photo to her parents.   She would be about five years older by now. 

Window Size and Small Screens (Phones)

 I'm getting word of problems with the WOW64 emulator on Windows 10 and the Safari browser launched from within Facebook Messenger.  I'm trying to adapt.   I’m not correctly scaling the page for browser windows sized in a doughnut hole between 1025 an 1221 pixels wide.   All but the date/time fields scale (squeeze down) correctly and I can’t figure out why.   Fortunately,  very few windows scale in that range unless there's an emulator of some kind involved.   The best way to avoid this is to run Edge in native Windows 10.   Otherwise try and stretch your browser window and see if the problem resolves.  Thanks Margie!

Looking Forward

Let's all keep our hopes and prayers up for an end to this Corona madness;  for the health and wellness of all;   Hopefully we'll see you at a meet soon!  Until then "Watch Your Six" has a whole new meaning.
