It takes many people to help run an event successfully. Some of those people are scorekeepers who have volunteered some of their time to help out. Many volunteer scorekeepers are also tournament players who are looking to qualify for the event as well.
As a reward for the volunteers who perform scorekeeping duties during the competition, some tournament directors will give them a period after the qualification time is over to qualify for the tournament on their own. This has been referred to as the “Scorekeepers Hour” because it is a period where only the scorekeepers are allowed to play the qualification games.
