Understandable on all parts - this is a HS tournament held at a college, being run by college students (mostly Juniors/Seniors) from our local chapter of a national math/science Honor Society.
My intention is to make sure that they are dressed responsibly and adequately - this tournament (in its 2nd incarnation) has been moderately attended (11 last year, 10 now or so,) and I've always been of the idea "You dress for the job you want,"...or in this case, to maintain a positive reputation among the coaches/teams in the area. Looking like slobs won't go over with me, and I'd rather be somewhat short-handed, looking for extra help who are appropriate-looking than be fine on staff, but they look like hobos.
