I agree. In addition to what Nick and Curt said, I have done every role, but the most satisfying part is to put a team of Gracious Professionals who do it with no strings attached. While I am filling Judges roles for the GMU 1 & 2 event, I do ask every volunteers for possible conflicts with any teams participating that day. 
 
No tournament can go smoothly without Key volunteers. They are well trained and experienced and helping each weekend one or other tournaments in various capacities. For the GMU event, we have Lead Judges in each Judging category who will coordinate with the Head Judge and Judge Advisor. Each Judge including Judges Assistant is given an hour training and refreshments. As everyone knows Steve Scherr answers every question related to game and we are happy that he will commandeer Head referee role. In addition we have support of former and current FLL, FTC and FRC teams as well as the GMU Society of Women Engineers students.  They will be in the mix to answer any questions teams may have about FTC and FRC or Engineering career.
 
Volunteer Opportunity:
Karen Berger responded to an e-mail on Oct. 29 about volunteering at Regional and State. In case if I have not responded to any requests, I may be in process or filled slots for Saturday. For Sunday I do have just few slots. However,I have good number of slots for Students who need service hours as Judges Assistant, Queing and Game Reset Referee. If Coaches fills comfortable, they are welcome to take this role. Just send me your request separately - [log in to unmask]

Keep in mind that you are only competing with the teams at your tournament so any help you can provide to prior or subsequent tournaments is fine.  In fact, we encourage it.  As a former coach it is very helpful to sit on a judging panel.  You learn a lot about what “right” looks like and how the process works.  And, from a tournament director’s perspective it is also very helpful to have fully engaged volunteers as well as coaches who are familiar with the tournament structure.

Is it correct, a coach of a local team can judge a local tournament before or after his/her team has competed?  Recently heard a coach judged a local tournament the week before his/her team competed and the following week his team competed and was selected to advance to states.  I always thought it would be a conflict of interest and have not volunteered to judge until my kids age out.  
Thanks!
