This is really awesome, and I'm glad there are more young TD's around the country!

I TD'ed my first event when I was 16 in March 2017, and ran my second event this year. Both with a full field of 72 players. It's a great learning experience for all young players.

The future of the sport is in good hands.

Nobody is in it for the credit anyways. At least the good ones aren't.

We have trouble sometimes getting club members older than that just to pick up the stray beer can or two.

Great write up. I love meeting young kids who blow my mind with how intelligent, articulate and confident they are. I think this girl would be one of those kids. I'm always thinking about me at 14 (woosh), then quickly realizing how much potential kids have and how important it is to bring it out of my own little ones (age 4 and 2).
