Many readers will remember that in 2016, MSSA's Thomas Brown (of All Stars) was selected to go to IeSF's Referees Course in Yinchuan in China. Not only did Thomas excel during the course, but he too ended up being the head referee at WCA's Grand Finals which were held in the Olympic Tennis Stadium in Beijing.
