    What is expected?

    • You will bring three days’ worth of appropriate attire.
    • You will either conduct administrative duties or judge (depending on staffing requirements and sponsorship requests) Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This will require long days with almost no breaks.
    • You will prepare for the event thoroughly. If you are judging, you can start by reviewing all available rules, procedures and policies.

    Hotel Info:

    • Spouses, friends, volunteers, players, significant others are not permitted.
    • Your hotel will be paid for starting the day before the event and last until the day after the event. If you wish to stay longer or arrive earlier, you must arrange for this yourself.

    Judge Testing:

    • There will be Artisan and Expert level testing at this event.

    Important Notes:

    • This is not like a vacation, this is like work. It can be very rewarding and valuable, but it is hard work.
    • If you are not chosen, don't take it personally. There are a limited number of sponsorships available. Again, if you would like to increase your chances of being accepted, covering your own flight and hotel will go a long way.

    If you are only able to attend for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, please put that in your application. We are taking a small amount of judges/volunteers that are only able to work Fri, Sat, Sun. These staff will receive less gifts overall.
    There will be a Judge Seminar on Thursday morning prior to staff needing to report to the event area. Classes will be held that will help those be a better judge. Some of the topics that will be covered are: Floor Judging, Deck Check Team, Scorekeeping, Registration/League, Head Judging/Higher Levels (this is only open to Level 2 and higher judges). These classes will be open to the public; I highly encourage everyone that is going to work the events that weekend to attend.

    If you think wearing black boots for 10+ hours a day for 4 days straight is going to be comfortable, then go for it....
