Calling all new tournament directors! You have been sitting in these tournaments, watching your kids play for years. You wish you could host one at your school, but you don’t know where to start. You can do it, and the OSCF board wants to help get you started!
Join Kathy Stevens on Friday night (April 29) during the Bughouse tournament to learn the basics of running your own tournament. Then, stop by on Saturday to see those concepts in action as she runs the Friends & Family tournament. You’ll get real-life examples, discover all the resources that the OSCF offers to support tournaments, and have your questions answered by OSCF qualifier Tournament Directors.
This event is free and open to all who would like to attend! While walk-ins are welcome, if you know you’d like to attend, please RSVP to Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
