What criteria do you folks use to determine if a field is unsafe? I am particularily interested in your approach to rain/directly after its rained. I ask because even though the local league usually makes this decision with regards to field use we also have to make a decision. I recently became the local rec leagues referee assignor and as such I am now part of their decision making process. For example last week we had one field for a travel game where an area of about 5-8 yds around one corner flag was seriously (1-3 inches) underwater. Had it been a rec game where I would advise on the deciosion to pull/use the field I would have advocated cancelling it. However the guy in charge of field use for travel games said we should go ahead, play, and simply take any corners that would have been taken from that side on the opposite end. I didn't ref the game but since I was on the field for another game and the assignor I got called into the discussion. i was extremely uncomfortabl with the idea but since both teams were already there-the one team having driven several hours- I let the center referee go ahead with that plan. I guess I'm asking for two things 1. comment on the particular case and 2. since we do have a hurricaine coming straight at us general guidelines for these kinds of events in the future.
