Grand Prix Trial: Calgary sanctioning is now open for Advanced WPN stores!
If you are Advanced level, you are eligible to run a Grand Prix Trial for a Grand Prix. If so, you will be able to select and schedule a Grand Prix Trial in Wizards Event Reporter.
Grand Prix Trials (GPTs) are Magic Tournaments that award the winner a 2-round bye to the appropriate Grand Prix. General Grand Prix Trial program information can be found at http://www.wizards.com/wpn/events/Article.aspx?x=Grand_Prix_Trials
Please read this information carefully before setting up your Grand Prix Trial:
Check the Pro Tour Qualifier Schedule before setting up your GPT. We strongly recommend that you do not run your GPT on the same day as a PTQ in your area. This can be found at http://www.wizards.com/Magic/tcg/events.aspx?x=mtgcom/events/ptq
Format— Stores may now choose the format for their Grand Prix Trial. Choose Sealed Deck, Standard, Extended, Modern, or Block Constructed. If Sealed Deck is your chosen format, please refer to the Grand Prix Trial fact sheet for that particular season to determine the approved product mix.
Premier Event — Tournament Officials (Tournament Organizer, Store Owner, Judges, Scorekeeper) may NOT play in the event.
