Without a Tournament Director there can be no tournament.Try not to take the TD for granted! TDs will ensure that the tournament runs smoothly and resolve any issues that arise at the table.
But they are human like the rest of us and will appreciate you co-operation. You should call the Director whenever you have a problem, but remember:
|Be Courteous||call the director politely, in a tone that will not upset your opponents|
|Be Patient||when you call the director may be involved elsewhere — do not demand instant
|Be Aware||familiarise yourself with the basic movements — check that you have the correct boards and the correct opponents|
|Be Helpful||Offer to assist with setting up and clearing up. Pass the boards to the next table. Do not leave them on the floor.|
|Be Tidy||Clear away crockery, glasses and litter|
|Be Grateful||It costs nothing to thank the workers!|
