Thank you for your interest in joining The Legacy Pit at our first Open! We’re very excited to be able to facilitate the return of paper Magic and we’re excited to be doing it with Magic’s best format, Legacy. Below, you will find all the information you’ll need to be a judge at our event. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com or through the contact page on JA. We look forward to working with you!
Head Judge – Ryan Freeburger
Appeals Judge/Checks Lead – Jaime D’Agostino
Floor Lead – Jack Pullman
We are looking to add eight judges to our team. One Side Events Team Lead, one Lead Scorekeeper and six floor judges.
The judging staff for this event will be organized into three teams: The Floor Team, the Deck Checks Team and the Side Events Team. The Floor Team will primarily be responsible for round turnover, the distribution and collection of slips, and answering calls. The Checks Team will be primarily responsible for performing deck checks and collating match slips. The Side Events Team, just like the name suggests, will be in charge of running the scheduled side events that will be running alongside the main event.
Judges for The Legacy Pit Open are expected to prepare for each event by reviewing the Comprehensive Rules, Magic Tournament Rules, Infraction Procedure Guide, and Judging at Regular REL documents. These documents can be found at the Magic Judges Document Center. As certified representatives of the Magic Judge Program, judges are expected to behave in a professional manner at all times. Judges are expected to arrive on time and in appropriate attire to begin judging at the start of their assigned shifts.
Judges at The Legacy Pit Open will be expected to wear a black collared shirt (If the judge owns any of the previous “judge” shirts, this is acceptable), black pants, black belt and black, comfortable shoes. During breaks, or any other time that a judge is off duty, judges should remove or cover their judge shirts. Judges will also be required to wear a mask at all times while in the Event Hall. This event has a Mask Mandate that requires players, staff, vendors and spectators to be wearing a mask at all times while inside the Event Hall. Judges will be expected to assist in the enforcement of the Mask Mandate in the same way that Judges are expected to assist with disruptive individuals.
If selected for a judging role, you may be asked to do any of the following:
- Work on the Main Event (pairings, slips, floor management, deck checks, end of round, etc.)
- Judge Scheduled Side Events
If selected to judge, you will be expected to work the full event, reporting at 9AM. Judges who are placed onto either the Floor Team or the Checks Team will be released at the conclusion of the Quarter Finals which is expected to be around 8PM. Judges on the Side Event Team will be released at the conclusion of the last side event, which is also expected to be around 8PM. Judges will have a one hour lunch break during the course of the day, as coordinated by the Team Leads.
Floor Judges will be compensated 150 dollars for the full event, paid in cash or through Paypal at the conclusion of the event.
If selected for the lead score keeping role, you will be asked to do the following:
- Scorekeep the main event using EventLink
- Oversee additional scorekeepers in score keeping the side events
- Track event attendance and status
- Help other members of the team with printing signs and forms
- Answer general player and judge questions
If selected as the Lead Scorekeeper, you will be expected to work the full event, reporting at 9AM. The Lead Scorekeeper is expected to be released at the conclusion of the Main Event. The Lead Scorekeeper will have a one hour lunch break during the course of the day, as coordinated by the Head Judge.
The Lead Scorekeeper will be compensated 200 dollars for the full event, paid in cash or through Paypal at the conclusion of the event.
