Note to all tournament directors
(Jan. 27, 2004) — This message is to all Michiana Region tournament directors and those interested in possibly becoming a director.
On January 26th I received the resignation of assistant Michigan tournament director Christi Saenz. Effective immediately, I will serve as the official tournament director for the entire region. All tournaments requesting sanctioning, be it Indiana or Michigan, will work through my office.
As per region requirements, you must be a registered member and submit an official sanction request form. If I have already granted sanctioning for your event, nothing changes for you as a result of this situation.
If you are wanting to run an event in Michigan, I need a copy of your sanction request form you filed with Christi. She has informed me that she has forwarded everything she has on tournaments today in the mail. If you sent Christi this sanction form, she will hopefully be sending it to me and you will not have to submit another. If you have not submitted the form yet, and would like for me to send you one, please e-mail me your address as soon as possible.
I want to get all events sanctioned and listed on the website as soon as possible. I believe the Indiana portion of the schedule to be complete with few if any changes coming. I know some Michigan events have been added but I am sure there are more. I would like to get all of this taken care of in the next 10 days.
If there is anyone wanting to host an event in our region and needs help from me, please tell them to contact me as soon as possible. For all of you that have received sanctioning, you should have received a tournament director's packet by now. If you have not received one, contact me and I will get it right off to you. I do not want to list a sanctioned event on the website and then see it canceled.
Make sure that you are ready to host the event if you request sanctioning. My goal for this entire region has been to see well run, very organized, consistent, fun tournaments. This goal has not changed for me.
