The Carolina Region is pleased to announce that it has hired Audun Runde as the region's first Tournament Administrator.
Audun's responsibilities will include: developing and posting the adult and junior tournament schedules; identifying, securing, and assigning facilities for all regular, regional championship, and bid tournaments; updating the Region website and Points systems with pre- and post-tournament information (site assignments, pools, results); and distributing pools, rosters, and tournament communications to tournament directors.
These activities/duties have been performed from within the Region Office since the office was established. Since the Region has grown tremendously over the past five years, the Board of Directors felt it was time to add another staff person to aid in the operation of the region and support the membership.
2013 also marks the beginning of a new junior tournament format for the Carolina Region. Audun hopes to use his background with spreadsheet design/programming to help the region automate both tournament scheduling process and post-tournament results. Members should see quite a few changes in the Points System this season based on these two factors!
Audun will begin his duties immediately and will work out of his home in Cary. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
