All tournaments will use the same tickets and be the same cost: $1 per ticket. Scoring will be done on the never drains software and virtual queuing will be used.
Winners will receive trophies and possibly prizes. There will be no cash payouts. All proceeds go to charity after expenses and fees.
The only money other than the $1 IFPA fee per player coming out of the total will be an operation fee. This tournament takes a great deal of time, effort and money to put on every year. Included in the operation fee is the cost of the trophies, prizes and other miscellaneous costs associated with running the tournament. 20% of the amount brought in will be used for these purposes.
