Yeah I have a few things that should be MANDATORY!
1.) Ask before you assume you can do anything. This goes with all aspects of the game. Smoking a cig, jump putting, casual relief, etc.
2.) Shut the hell up when people are preparing to throw. I love bantering back and forth with anybody on my card but I will shut my mouth when they get to their lie until they have thrown.
3.) Have fun. Yeah, bad rounds happen (case in point, my last two rounds of the Farragut Open). I still had a smile on my face and a spring in my step. I hate having one negative player effect the entire card with their attitude.
4.) Discuss your beef with the player it's with, not everyone but them. Nothing worse then hearing how you pissed somebody off from somebody that wasn't on your card, or worse, at the tournament.
5.) ALWAYS THANK YOUR TD AND VOLUNTEERS! They get nothing but the satisfaction of seeing their event work. A thank you will go a long way to making sure they come back the next year and try harder to make it better.
I could go on and on and on...
