Subject: 2.4  HOW TO BECOME AN UMPIRE ?
=======================================

I'm always  pleased to  have someone  interested in  umpiring   or  in just
gaining a better understanding or the rules.  I send the following material
to all  persons who have an interest  in umpiring.  You may  give a copy of
this application to all interested USATT members.   If you  are involved in
running a touranemnt, obtain  a copy  of  the USATT's tournament guide from
the USATT headquarters.

There are four levels of umpires:  club, regional, nat'l,  & int'l.  Please
refer to the club &  regional qualification sheet  attached for details.  A
current USATT membership is a prerequisite for becoming an umpire.

The ITTF rule book (an abbreviated pocket version of the handbook/yearbook)
is furnished to you when you apply to take  the club umpire  exam.  I would
suggest that you obtain the ITTF handbook/yearbook  to  have a complete set
of  all the rules  and laws of table tennis  (published every  two  years).
there  is a very  good companion book called   handbook for match officials
which is a must for  those who wish  to gain insight into understanding the
reasons  behind   the rules.  The   publications are available   from USATT
headquarters in colorado.

I would be happy to answer any further questions you might have on becoming
an umpire,  fell free to call or  write me for  any type  of help you might
require. 
                     
Sincerely,

Tom Miller

Letter From the Editor
The Anaheim Hilton Bonus Package

     It has come to my attention that many athletes planning to participate
in the U.S. Open believe the price of $75 a night at  the Anaheim Hilton
and Towers is a little too high to pay for lodging  while in California and
are seeking shelter elsewhere.  
     Let me present two words regarding the Anaheim Hilton and Towers;
Convenience and Bargain.   
     When you're playing in a tournament, the last thing any competitor
wants to worry about is tardiness to the tournament.  The Anaheim Hilton is
the closest hotel to the Anaheim Convention Center.  Aside from allowing
you to avoid manuvering around the constant traffic jam of Los Angeles, it
will allow friends, family and children the freedom to come and go from the
Hotel to the Convention Center as often as they would like.   The hotel
contains a pool, workout facility and six different restaurants for your
travel companions to enjoy, especially  while you're sitting around
watching other competitors all day.  (Remember, they may not LOVE it like
you do!) 
     Many people aren't aware of the Anaheim Hilton's four-star quality.
They also aren't aware that a normal room at the Anaheim Hilton costs
approximately $180 per night.  USATT members are being asked  to pay only
$75 per night, less than half of the original cost.  A family of four  (as
long as they are related) or two adults can all stay in the same room at  
the Hilton for that price without paying any extra fees.  What a bargain!
     I would lastly like to humorously remind most of you that you have
relationships with people -- the kind of relationship is irrelevant.
Invite them to this one!  This tournament gives you the perfect situation
to invite those that you love to  enjoy a glamorous hotel  for a bargain
basement price and all the sites located conveniently nearby while still
participating in your favorite sport!   I'm sure that many of you have
sworn to never bring anyone along on these trips because past experiences
have been something you'd rather forget.    Not this tournament!  The hotel
is absolutely exquisite... and romantic.   How does a second honeymoon
sound? 
          Staying at the Anaheim Hilton and Towers will be well worth it.
See you in June!    

Anahiem Hilton and Towers
         Perks         

The Right Facilities
     1,600 deluxe guest rooms                               
     100 luxurious and oversized suites
     Six restaurants located within the hotel
     25,000 sq. ft. Hilton Sports and Fitness Center
     (Contains state-of-the-art exercise equipment
     and weight machines, a pool and spa, aerobics
     studio, basketball gym, steam baths, sauna,
     tanning and massage).

The Right Location 
     The Anaheim Hilton and Towers' prime location
     puts your group right in the center of Southern
     California's finest recreation, entertainment
     attractions and diversions.

RATINGS

Important Notice to 
Tournament Directors
     Since the implementation of ratings processing at
USATT Headquarters, we've encountered situations
where people who are not USATT members are playing in
sanctioned tournaments.
     USATT Bylaw 3.7.1dictates that:  Qualifications
for entry.  All entrants must have a valid membership as
defined in by-law 2.2.1.  
     Regulations require that we do not process
ratings for any matches in which the player is a non-
member or if  his/her membership has expired.  If this
policy was adhered to there would be a delay in returning
tournament results to the tournament director.  It would
also drastically affect those players who compete against
non-members since their matches would not be calculated. 
Additionally,  processing of these "non-members" also
requires staff time that has not been paid for. 
     To date, USATT has been processing the ratings
for those  "non-members" as a service to current members
to ensure result continuity.  

     However, on May 2 we will begin billing the
host club for all non-members and expired members
who participate in USATT sanctioned tournaments.



InHouse Update
Thank You For Your Patience

We appreciate the patience of the tournament directors in
receiving the ratings list prior to sanctioned tournaments. 
Because of various delays in the implementation of the
ratings system, there was some backload of tournaments. 
We have worked it out and are now currently up-to-date
on the processing of all tournaments. 

The following procedures will be used when processing
tournaments:
Prior to Tournaments:
     *  Ratings lists will be sent to directors 10 to 14
     days prior to tournaments (unless otherwise
     specified by a director on the Tournament
     Sanctioning Request form).

Following Tournaments:
     *  To speed processing time following
     tournaments, we would appreciate tournament
     directors to closely adhere to the instructions sent
     with the ratings list and submit the tournament
     report within seven days of completion of the
     tournament.

REMINDER: All players must have valid USATT
memberships.  Otherwise, the club will be billed for

NEW MEMBERSHIP RATES FOR 1994
 
In all areas of our lives, everything just seems to be
getting more and more expensive.  The costs at USATT
Headquarters over the past 10 years have doubled and in
some cases quadrupled (see article below).  In order to
continue to provide programs and the quality services our
membership deserves, the USATT Executive Committee
approved a membership rate increase effective July 1,
1994. 


The Increase
The following membership rates have been approved by
the USATT Executive Committee and will be effective as
of July 1:  

* Adult
1 Yr.               $25.00
3 Yr.               $60.00

*  Junior 
1 Yr.(w/oMag)            $8.00
1 Yr.(w/ Mag)           $12.00

*  Family 
1 Yr.                $45.00

*  Table Tennis Today Magazine
Domestic          $20.00
*  Please Note that the two year adult membership has been eliminated.

As a special consideration to long time members:

A)  Anyone who signs up for a three year membership
will pay $60, which is $20 per year.  Therefore, they keep
the $20 a year rate.
B)  The rate increase will be effective July 1 after the U.S.
Open giving many people the opportunity to renew at the
old rate.


Why An Increase?
1.  From 1984 to 1994, cost of living has increased
dramatically.  For example, the cost of food, beverage, and
household operations have risen 44 percent. 


2.  Mailing costs have doubled over the past 10 years.  First
Class Postal Rates, the primary method of mailing Executive
Committee election ballots, membership cards and other
membership material, have increased from $.22 to $.29 in
the past ten years.  Another postal rate increase from $.29 to
$.32 is expected in the year 1995.  Now that there are more
registered members and with escalating postal increases,
projected costs for 1994 mail is $31,000. (Continue P. 4)

3.  Other variable expenses such as copying, printing,
telephone and supplies have also increased since 1984.  For
instance, minimal printing costs have increased 400 percent
from $9,500 in 1984 to over $51,000 projected for 1994.  USATT
prints the following member

	  Tournament Guide 
          Tournament results
          Coaching tips
          Rule changes
          Other pertinent information 

4.  USA Table Tennis pays $5,300 per year to provide headquarters
and affiliated clubs with liability insurance.  USATT provides
insurance to clubs at no additional cost in order 
to prevent club directors from having to obtain cost prohibitive liability
insurance on their own.  

Services Membership fees are "recycled" at USATT Headquarters so that
you, our members and clubs, may reap the benefits.  Generated
revenue is spent specifically on the following:

* Providing members with the latest information in the sport
  of table tennis.

*  Supplying members with adequate administrative support.

*  Operating the national computerized ratings system.

*  Covering the complete cost of both the U.S. Open and U.S.
   Nationals every year.  These are two of the
   largest table tennis competitions in the U.S.

*  Paying liability insurance for affiliated
   clubs and sponsored events.

*  Providing forms and labels to clubs upon request.

*  Providing a 1-800 number for membership information.

*  Publishing bi-monthly magazine.

*  Sanctioning tournaments

*  Assisting th edevelopement of junior and grassroots
   programs.

please do not hesitate to call or write USA Table
