I was under the impression that you could only host two events for a local closed event.  Have you or others hosted pre approved tournaments with 3 or more events?

I am not aware of any event limits for closed tournaments.

I thought it was in the tournament host guide but I looked in 2007, 2009, and 2010 editions and could not find it?

So I ask the Redemption powers that be, Can a local closed tournament host 3, 4, or even all events?

In Christ,

I have hosted a local closed with at least 5 probably 6 categories before.  t1-2 player, t1 multi, t2 -2 player, t2 multi, booster and sealed.  Sometimes I host the tournament over two or three days to get all the catergories in that my group has interest in playing.

A closed local tournament can only have 2 official catagories. You can run more if you like but Cactus won't send you prizes for more than 2 catagories and RNS points won't count for more than 2 catagories.

Well I h ave recieved prizes and RNRS points for myself and for those that won/placed in each category for the three locals I have run so far.  All of them have been over 2 categories.  Do you know where that rule is listed?

Can't find where it was listed. The first time I hosted a closed tournament Rob told me I could only have 2 official catagories.

Is that just an old rule that has since changed? We need an official word from Rob on this.

If it is an official rule I would like to know as well.  I am not sure I agree with it, but that is beside the point.  If I have violated it, I did so unawares and would like to know for sure before I host another tournament.

I emailed Rob and here is the email I got back



Hi Matthew:
 
I have modified the rules for closed since hosts can apply for an event to be sanctioned after the fact.  You may host up to six closed events in a tournament season and you may hold as many catagories as you like.
 
Sincerely,

I understand why it is important, but I am not a big fan of the requirement for hosts to have 2 locals and  district under their belt before they can do this. I haven't hosted yet, but my whole playgroup are college guys (and girl), and it's impossible to tell 6 weeks in advance if we'll have people available for a sat. tourney.....

this would work great, but I won't be able to get the first three normal tourney's planned.... until summer if even, because my friends here are scattered across time and space during breaks :(

Nick, this principle works for you perfectly, then.  You do not need to send in an application before you can hold your tourney.  What were you implying as a problem, then?  Is it that you have not hosted one yet?  I or even a couple of hosts can help you with that by doing a side-by-side hosting with you with an existing host who can to an adhoc with you.  Nonethless, I do not foresee any problems.

8. Hosts must have already hosted at least 2 sanctioned Locals and 1 sanctioned District to be eligible for the Pre-Cactus-Approved tourney program.

correct, i have not hosted yet. Can you explain the second part of your post, regarding adhoc (which i only understand in terms of computer networking)?

My 'ad hoc' meant using the pre-sanctioned plan but with a host who is able to travel to your tourney and co-host with you.  His/her name will be placed side-by-side yours.  This makes the tourney official.  Try hosting side-by-side for District.  Then just apply for a tourney requiring the 6wk timeframe. You should be set to do future 'ad hocs'.

Also, the 2-local + 1-district hosting requirement assures you of some promo card supply if even little, plus the prizes -- you will need to advance your prizes, that is why.

Post in your reply your city and state.  Any host who reads this and who is nearest you should be able to help.  Otherwise, we can think of other means to make it happen for your group.

This is really great to know about. I just had a unofficial Tournament in Chicago and this could really enhance what resources we can have access to on short notice.
