Passing the Torch: From Virtual War to Real War

Postby Night Strike on Mon Sep 07, 2009 11:10 pm

It is with a bittersweet taste that I have come to make this announcement. After a stint as a Tournament Elf and then as a Tournament Director, Natewolfman is having to pass on his Directing torch. As some of you may already know, Nate will be serving a tour in Iraq starting in a few weeks. He will be heading into places that many of us never have or ever will set foot. Regardless of your political feelings or opinions on the war, I'm sure we'll all be appreciative of Natewolfman's commitment. Thank you for your time here on CC. Good luck over there!


In order to get back to having 4 Tournament Directors, Lindax has joined the team. He has been a prolific organizer over the last several months, and many of you may have played in one or more of his LxDS tournaments. Lindax knows many different languages, so he will be overseeing the International Tournaments as well as taking care of Abandoned Tournaments. He's gone through his crash course in directing, so give him a few days to keep the boat from overflowing. Many welcomes to you Lindax!


Good luck to everybody at the start of another school year and many new tournaments.
