Sign me up, please.

Also, you might want to consider having an assistant TD to handle the lower-rated tournament brackets since with this rate of sign-ups there could be enough interest to support 2+ brackets below the top 2. It would be good if a few more people had experience with being a TD and you could still be the "top TD" who handles any problems that the junior TD can't fix (or, that they create). I'm not volunteering to do it. I just think it would be helpful if people with an interest in running tournaments got the chance to get some experience. It might encourage more people to host/fund tournaments in the future. And, it appears that the demand for tournaments right now exceeds the supply.

Of course to be a TD they would have to commit to being available that day which probably means they can't participate in the tournament themselves (or their entire bracket would go on hold whenever they were in a game), so you need to find people who are both available and also interested in the tournament but not interested in participating o_O perhaps there are some such people. They won't come forward unless you ask them to.

Well I shouldn't have much of a problem, the easiest part of TD'ing is the actual tournament (if you did everything properly beforehand). Of course, if someone wants to take a babystep into TD'ing I can always work something out with them and introduce them to best practices. I'd say the attempt to find people would be better left to me working with Dog about some tournament newsletter, but if someone that stumbles upon the thread wants to take a shot at TD'ing, that works too.

ETA. And no, not everyone can or should be a winner. Do what you think is best and what doesn't turn into a logistics nightmare.

Usually people that play 1v1 tournaments end up reaching 1500+ ladder in a few months. Of course there are outliers, but playing in a tournament usually goes hand in hand with trying to be better at the game than other players, and to do that you must practice a lot. I guess what I am saying is there just isn't a big demographic of lower rated players that also want to play in tournaments.

Spoiler: show
I believe that it is necessary for the major League to make a low rating threshold of 1800
