Recently we received word that Adam Szymanski and Adam Szugajew from Poland would no longer be able to be part of the Solo Masters referee team. We made a call to the community for a replacement and received a number of qualified applicants.
We are pleased to announce that we’ve selected Jonathan Pickles, aka “Pickles” and Ryan Evans, to join the team. Pickles is one of the most solid players on the rules, has been the referee at a large number of important tournaments, and has the temperament to handle 80 players from all around the globe. We’ve asked him to be the new head referee.
Ryan Evans, aka “the hobbit”, is a veteran of the UK tournament scene and can compete at the highest levels. We’ve also seen him game all night and drink cocktails missing half of SmogCon 2014, so he will fit right into the WTC scene.
We welcome their oversight at the 2015 WTC Solo Masters as they strengthens the entire team. For the full referee roster, visit the roster webpage.
