How to run a tournament?

I'm thinking of organising a tournament for Rock Paper Scissors. I'm hoping to attract at least 100 people (although preferably more), and to include sponsorship, prizes, referees, a pre-tournament entry process, and other tournamenty requirements. It would take place somewhere around June or July depending on how much planning was involved.

I've never done such a thing before.

Is there anyone who has run a tournament of any kind and can give tips on what's involved and how to do it?

You should talk to Naomi, she's been running a tournament for a few years now.

Have you looked at the World RPS Society page yet?

Response by poster: rossination: yes I have.

It seems that I should point out that I'm primarily looking for information on how to run an event of this size, planning required, etc.

I really only mentioned the fact that it will be an RPS tournament so that anyone answering would know the context.

Budweiser and A&E have been doing this at bars around here this year. It's... unsettling.

It's USARPS. That should help you.
