It was a good test
2020, September 16th
I still play every week with my band. We have a gig in 3 days in a small festival.
Yesterday, I had a rehearsal to prepare this gig, and we finished late.
The issue is that an IFC Cup was starting at 9:20pm.
And I left my rehearsal at 9:30.
I had to drive 30 minutes to go back home.
I was the only admin for the tournament, an IFC branded tournament (so no mistake allowed), and I could not be there during the first 40 minutes.
So I send a message in the tournament chat saying :
« Guys I count on you for filling your scores. I can not be there until 10:10pm.»
And everything went well. They all made the job.
It was a good test.
When we give people responsibility, they take it and respect it.
Even if they lost their game.
Once home, I managed the rest of the tournament and we did not have any issue.
