No. We do not allow you the option of rejecting games. When assignments are released, the Arbiter will automatically accept the game for you. Because of this, it is imperative you keep your block dates and times current.
We understand that issues come up that prevent you from working games. However, when this happens, you must complete our turn back form so the assignments team will be notified immediately. Please note that for all games turn backed, you will be charged a $5 Turnback fee per game.
