  Respond to Accept OR Decline games timely  
  Lets make sure we all know what a TURN BACK is. "A TURN BACK is any game that is TURNED DOWN/DECLINED. Reasons are generally:  

- A simple DECLINING of an assignment (points to schedule availability. Consideration for a game being assigned IS NOT POSSIBLE if availability is updated via Arbiter routinely)

- No response in a TIMELY MANNER (points to potentially not logging into the Arbiter or ignoring assignments - inability to respond)

- Game is initially accepted, but declined later due to scheduling conflict

- DOUBLE BOOKING occurs when multiple games are assigned on the same day in the same time slot. (usually a high school & college assignment, or two high school assignment from different association)*

- INABILITY to take action (points to reviewing assignments/emails, but not accepting assignments)

- WAITING for "SOMETHING BETTER" to be available (multi-association members)

- FAILURE to log into the Arbiter routinely

NON-COMPLIANT GAME FEE PENALTIES are assigned games that are "Turned-Back" for reasons that are non-compliant or unacceptable actions based on the MIGS Policy.  Under the following conditions a Game Fee will be charged on any assignment turned back not accepted:
  48hrs. before start time of assigned / accepted game $25 for EACH infraction  
  AFTER initially accepted* $5 for EACH infraction AFTER 2ND Offense  
  within 7 DAYS AFTER Arbiter assignment $5 for EACH infraction AFTER 2ND Offense  
  When you are available according to Arbiter 36hrs BEFORE assignment $5 for EACH infraction AFTER 2ND Offense  
- Your availability shows FREE for ballgame on the 2/19.
- On the 2/10, Arbiter assigns the 2/19 game (9 days later)
- That game is more than 36hrs away

Declining this game results in a fine, as your status showed AVAILABLE when the game was originally assigned.
  * These situations will be reviewed by the assignor on a case by case basis to determine if a fee will be applied.
