Travel and Hotel

While the honorarium is a flat rate in order to simplify calculating costs for tournament organizers and referees, the Division provides additional compensation for those referees traveling an unusual distance. In addition, hotel accommodations are provided—as needed—for Division events.


We try to have coffee and donuts available in the morning of each competition, but there’s no guarantee.

We will provide you lunch, either from a concession stand, or ordered from a local restaurant.
