TD Tournament Application Suggestion

TD Tournament Application Suggestion
December 17, 2010 09:01AM
Hey guys and gal,
Here's a suggestion from The Zinger in reference to TD applications:

"Now, is it possible to start forcing TDs to submit a SN Tournament Qualifier Application in order to sanction his/her tournament? And if possible someone could even put it online for submittal if it can be done. On this application, the TD needs to check a box off that reads something like this: I have read, understand, and agree with the SN Handbook and will follow the SN Giudelines to the best of my ability. This way there is no playing dumb. Maybe have a spot or section at the bottom where the td can list all tournaments he is wanting to run. If a td lists all for the year that's good, but I believe a td must send in at least 1 application per year he runs a td just so he can check that little box off I was talking about."

Thoughts?

If we had control of the website, not a problem. Pretty quick easy form that could be whipped up.

Either that, or we could put it on an editable PDF that they can download, save, and e-mail to us.

I just hate that we always have to do things the hard way.

Agreed. We would be able to have decent webspace for less than $50 a year.

$50 a year? Those are the fees from a single 25 person tournament. I doubt anyone would object to the BoD using that or even $100 annually for a top notch website. Something else to look at down the road. Sounds like you guys have full plates as it is.

Do it and quit asking questions. A lot easier to say your sorry then ask permission.

If the thought is to go that way (and I'm not even sure it's necessary)....I would hope the board would choose a neutral party provider. To avoid the obvious conflict of interest that some board members might have.

Actually a precident was set in regards to board members and possible financial gain a couple years ago. Bill McCarty was on the board and the and a provider/maker of bag tags at the time. The board at that time didn't have him do the bag tags because it was considered a conflict of interest. The bag tags were purchased from a neutral provider.

Actually I remember reading of a year that he did do them while on the board... granted there was a little bit of drama but that was due to the fact that they didn't really publicize the bids and it looked like a "no bid contract."

My favorite part was "THE obvious conflict of interest."

The following year he did not....due to the fact that he was on the board....and it was considered a conflict of interest.

I doubt that would have been much of an issue IF they would have had an actual transparent/open bid the first time.
