Don't be intimidated. There are almost always novice or amateur divisions so you can work your way up to the big dogs, and there's nothing like the rush you get from your first event. Once you try it, you may get hooked! We'll give you the rundown so you will be well prepared and ready to register!
Good refereeing could mean the difference between a win and a loss, or a loss and and a broken arm. Good officials are able to spot disasters before they happen, and keep opponents from cheating and gaining an unfair advantage over you. It doesn't hurt to ask the director about who they have officiating before entering a tournament.
This means you will be able to lose twice for each entry before being removed from the tournament. These are almost always blind draw, so your placement is a matter of luck.
