Looking to hold a Settlers of Catan Tournament in Sydney Australia sometime in 2006
Thinking of having a round-robin on the first day with each player playing 3 games
then on the 2nd day ceeding the players based on their day 1 performances
From the 1st round on the 2nd day we will have each winner progressing onto the 2nd round (say 16 players) and then the winners of these 4 games to go onto a final board played on a new 10th Anniversary Settlers of Catan chest board, with the ultimate winner taking home the Chest as first prize, along with a trophy and free entry to next years tournament
and 2nd, 3rd and 4th getting trophies, plus free entry to next years tournament
Would be hoping for 64 + players each paying between $15 and $20 each to cover venue and prize costs
What do you all think? any comments?
When do you think we should hold it, and how many people think they would attend?

Sean, I've run an SvC tournament in the US with between 120 and 140 players for the past 4 years.
Drop me an email at email@example.com and I can forward you are tournament rules for both playing and scoring.
These are modelled after the KOSMOS tournament format that they run in Deutschland.
