OMHA has posted a video regarding the use of electronic game sheets


OMHA has also provided the following comments regarding the completion of the electronic games sheets

I understand that Electronic game sheets are new to a lot of us, however your responsibilities as an official has not changed.
It is the responsibility of all Officials in a game to review and insure the correctness of game sheet before signing.
To date there have been a number of errors occurring some of which are listed below:
1) Officials Position for game not correct i.e; Referee vs Linesmen, 2 Official game s/b Referee/Referee. 3 Official game s/b Referee/Linesman/Linesman, 4 Official Game s/b Referee/Referee/Linesman/Linesman
2) No Officials Card Number
3) Wrong Card Number
4) Penalties not being recorded properly.  i.e; CFB on 1 Line with no GM on next line with proper code. Fighting Major with no GM30 on next line or GM31 missing for 2nd fight in the stoppage.
5) No Penalty Codes
6) Wrong Penalty Codes
The Penalty codes are available on the I-Pad.
Please see the OHF_Penalty_Codes_-_2016_2017 for your reference. I would recommend that you print a copy and keep in your referee bag for future reference.
Match penalty procedure has not changed from previous years.
If there is a match penalty with the electronic game sheet, fill out the game sheet accordingly with the proper penalty codes and make sure to describe the situation in the notes spelling the name of the player in question if it is a recorded message. Immediately after the game, please call the OMHA Regional Director and notify them of the Match Penalty.
In the meantime, you will need to go to the OMHA web site at www.omha.net (Resources tab>look for the MP report) and print off a Match penalty report and fill it out and send it to the OMHA Regional Director within 24 hours of the incident.
Please make copies of the report, The OMHA Regional Director may need to have a hearing regarding the MP.re could be a hearing  You will need to reference your notes and Match penalty report.
Toleration for these errors ends today as it is creating a lot of unnecessary” work for a number of people. Officials who fail to insure correctness of Game sheets will be held accountable.
