Player pre-registration via the MLD website and paypal.
Onsite registration possible if there is space in the field. extra $10 (or equiv) more for onsite.
90% payout: 5% to local organizer, 5% to MLD
3 boards: 8-12 players (1 board as practice)
4 boards: 13-18 players (1 board as practice)
5 boards: 16-24 players (1 board as practice)
6 boards: 14-30 players (1-2 boards as practice)
7 boards: 25-30 players (2 boards as practice)
8 boards: 27-36 players (2 boards as practice)
9 boards: 29-42 players (2 boards as practice)
10+ boards: 32-48 players (2+ boards as practice)
Each of these setups would have the day take around 7 hours.
Venue Buy-In: Since these events will be all day ones, the ability to get the venue to add money should be explored. A suggestion would be for $5 a head. Some Local Tournament Directors are adding the sponsor/venue-add money to the consolation bracket to attract more players.
Making the events into a series
Host multiple local events in a particular State/Province and have an end of the year Champion
Use the MLD Singles as the basis of a full weekend event
Blind Draw on Friday, MLD Singles on Saturday (Ladies, Open, Youth?), Doubles or another Draw on Saturday nite, Doubles, Mixed Doubles, Triples, etc on Sunday.
