Format: 300 pt SpecOps ITS2014, please bring a printed copy of your list that you can give up to the TO
Rounds: 4; scenario selections are under consideration and may be tweaked versions of the current ITS2014 scenarios. Scoring will likely incorporate some measure besides straight objective points because of the 4 round limit with the potential for a huge number of players.
Size:  40 players (I'm shooting high!)

Prize Support: Prize support (I hope) will be continually evolving as we get closer to the event, but here's what I've got so far.

Second Prize - there will be something!
Third Prize - there will also be something for this guy

Dire States Competition: As well as fighting for yourself, if you come you will be representing your home state. Each state will be ranked according to the combined score of its top 3 players. I am hoping to have a trophy that will be engraved with the name of the winning state (I would love to make this an annual event).

Interstate challenges: I will be encouraging interstate challenges for the first round, and setting up non-prearranged matchups to avoid people playing others from their state in the first couple rounds.

Lodging: I would love to see people from out of town, which means hotels for some. Masterofmelee is looking into our options here, for Friday and Saturday nights. I will update this section when I have more information.

In order to extend the fun and because the logistics require some of it, there will also be open Infinity gaming on Friday evening on some of the tables that we will be using on Saturday (I will setting up as much as possible on Friday night).
