Re: 2012 tipping calendar

So DiRenan is doing Cincy and I've just signed up MarkNL for Moscow (you can opt-out if you change your mind).

Re: 2012 tipping calendar

What are the requirements to manage a tournament?

Well, to have some spare time during the week, to be able to count (or use a calculator), keep track of how each player played on each day, post updated scores after each day and that's pretty much it. And of course, to clearly understand the game's rules.

If you're interested, just say so

Re: 2012 tipping calendar

Ok. Thanks. I might pass to manage one right now, since I'm currently in school, but could do a tournament associated in my time zone to make it easier...Will think about it!

Sure! Oh, I forgot to say that when it comes to International series tournaments, you as a manager get to choose which one we'll play that week, cause in tipping we always play only one tournament per week. And since you are (I'm guessing) from the US, you might want to consider Quebec (starting September 10th), as it's the only one left after the US Open that's not half way around the world. Of course, there are no rules against running any event that you choose (I ran Australian Open for example, and I'm in Europe), so it's totally your call.

Anyway, on page 1 you can see which tournaments are reserved and which are still free to take, so when you find some time and if you're still interested, just let us know

I'm afraid not. But it's not a big deal really, there's always someone to help out, Frederik and I can give you a hand with the scoring and it's normal to see other players posting order of play for you if you don't have time. No one expects perfection in your very first tournament

Re: 2012 tipping calendar

Anyone wants to take USO? I can do either singles or doubles, although I'd prefer doubles because of scheduling and my other work and daily errands. Anyway, sign up if you're interested.

Re: 2012 tipping calendar

I've checked and I'll able to do Moscow if nothing else shows up

I can't do USO, Next 2 weeks are busy. I can try to help out the manager a bit. Also I've just started managing and I don't think it would be a good idea if I ran a Grand Slam as my 2nd tourney

No problem, we'll find some way around this Btw, if you think managing a slam in your 2nd attempt is tricky, try to imagine running it as your first - I've done it that way; what a disaster that one was...

Re: 2012 tipping calendar

Thanks longtin, I know you're always ready to help, no problem if you can't this time

---

So folks...there's a serious risk that we don't play doubles in NY, cause it's really impossible for the same manager to run both, especially in a major.
