-Preregistered players are required to check in prior to close of registration.
-Late registrations will be accommodated as possible after other tournament activities are fulfilled.

Payouts
We will play four rounds of Swiss for each event.  Regular events are payed out as follows:
4 – 0 10 packs
3 – 0 – 1 6 packs
3 – 1 4 packs
2 – X 1 pack

Two-Headed Giant payouts are difficult to standardize to achieve our desired pack payouts due to the amount of games that go to a draw.  Each member of a team will receive one pack for playing the event and an additional pack per win.  Additional packs may be awarded, post event, to raise the average pack payout.

Other Rewards
-All players that complete the midnight event will be preregistered for the release draft (occurring the following Friday) for free.  The player must play all four rounds, this precludes intentional draws and concessions.  Midnight qualifies as an Iron Wo/Man event, but is not eligible for other rewards.
-The Iron Man Challenge.  See below.
– Events will have door prizes after the first round, based on attendance.  This includes things such as deck boxes, sleeves, binders, dice, etc.
-Events with 50+ players will have an additional door prize of a fat pack claimable on release day (or one in stock if an older set is desired).
-Events with 75+ players will have an additional door prize of a booster box claimable on release day (or one in stock if an older Standard set is desired).
-Events with 85+ players will have an additional door prize of a booster box claimable on release day (or one in stock if an older Standard set is desired).

Iron Wo/Man Challenge

The mightiest of the mighty.  This grand ordeal is for Magic players of the highest endurances.  One must play five of the six scheduled events to qualify.

Specific rules
-An event will not count towards meeting the challenge if the player intentionally draws in a round, concedes a round, or drops from the event.
-Playing a sixth event can replace the score of the weakest among the previous five.

Iron Wo/Man Rewards
-Every contestant receives a commemorative life pad.
-Every contestant receives a promo pack consisting of seven cards.
-A special limited event will be held the following Sunday at 12:30 PM, invites will be announced during the week.  Invitations are extended based on standing and total amount of contestants, the limited event itself is free.  Additional rewards may be distributed upon the completion of the event.
