@a1canada will likely win and he deserves it. I gave my vote to @Vocelov. I think she/he did a steady and constant good job througout all the year, and she/he deserves some recognition too.

For me this is a 4 way tie , @Vocelov @BMT360 @Normand all took on a great amount of events, plus each a time consuming GS.

Management was the best overall since I began playing , very happy with the group of managers we have now, each are extremely dependable, and never any need to avoid events because of who is managing, like I would have in the past.

We do have some need for more managers, as it's to much to ask for the same ones to take on so much each year, but I'm confident we will have more step up as others step down, as has long been the case.

All the managers do a hell of a job in sometimes very difficult circumstances. So deep respect for their work, time, patience and self control to organise iT all. Vocelov is getting my voice this time because of the 18 tournaments but you are all TT heroes, managers !!!!

Thanks to everyone who was nominated - you are all winners.
My vote goes to Vocelov as he combines quality and quantity so greatly, and somehow he was not nominated for Rookie last or this year.

Everyone here deserves an award for keeping the game going.

But a1canada wins for this year. Its not just the frequency of the management - its the enthusiasm while doing it that really puts him over the top. I could never combine the two like he has!

Certainly winning this award was not expected again this year until the voting started , some outstanding efforts from @BMT360 @Vocelov @Normand @Snowwy @nachotuerto @PetecoKraus @alejan_milos @dinkulpus

In my view 2019 had the best managing in a long time, no one really had to do some of the crazy number of events like in the past years, you can see from ask the board thread, there are far fewer manager mistakes then ever before, answers on issues do not take forever like when I began playing , help is more readily available , and there is better information to go off of when managing.

Bring on 2020 season !
