Chase does such a good job running tourneys in this area. Why mess with that formula? I think it's harder than it looks.
Other than the fact that we have a ton of events to choose from, I would not discourage someone who wants to "Run" an event. Along with what the other guy said, Chase does a great job with his events, so my recommendation would be to help him or run a pool to get a feel for it. If it weren't for the assistance of some experienced TD's playing in my first event, it could have been a disaster and probably would not have become what it is today. I think you biggest challenge will be finding a good date to do it. Good luck either way man.
Gene, I would love to sponsor the Rumble every year but unfortunately I don't have that kind of cash. I still plan on being involved with the players book and several other things for the Rumble.
I understand there is already a ton of tournaments in Iowa and Iron Lion already does a great job in the area. I by no means want to take anything away from from them. I will make sure that my dates won't conflict with anything they are running. If anything my tournament should help their business because I plan to use them to vendor. They have told me several times that just vending an event is the ideal situation for them.
I offered to be the TD for a couple Iron Lion tournaments last year but my offer was turned down. I want to become more involved in the sport other than just being a player. I want to gain tournament directing experience. Everyone says its harder than it looks and I believe them. But how will I know for sure if don't run one for myself?

I am not the patient type. I'm not going to wait a couple years before running a tournament. If I want to do something, I want to do it now. I am going to run a league this year (possibly two) and some unsanctioned events to raise money to put in another course in the area. I think that should make me well prepared for my tournament in the fall.
