Bath Magic UK are sponsoring an annual Invitational tournament to be
run in December 2004. This tournament may be sanctioned by the
DCI depending on the formats used. This tournament is not endorsed by Wizards of the Coast. It is run by Paul Dale and Jim Grimmett only. The format of the
tournament will be announced at the November 2004 Monthly Standard tournament.
Between January 2004 and November 2004 inclusive, every person attending a Bath Magic Monthly Standard tournament will receive points. These tournaments will continue to be sanctioned by the DCI, and run under the DCI floor rules.
Points will be allocated on the following scale:
At the end of November the top 15 players in the league table and the Bath Invitational Champion 2003 (Tu Nguyen), will be invited to a tournament that will run alongside the December Bath Magic UK monthly Standard tournament. The prizes will be finalised by the end of November 2004.
Every player who has 4 points or more at the end of November will win at least one 15 card Magic: the Gathering booster.
Jim Grimmett and Paul Dale may play in tournaments and win points, and therefore appear in the league table. THEY WILL NOT BE INVITED TO THE INVITATIONAL. If either Jim Grimmett or Paul Dale (or both) appear in the top 15 in the league at the end of the year, they will be removed from the league to allow someone else to be invited.
Tu Nguyen may play in tournaments and win points, and therefore appear in the league table. If, after the November 2004 tournament, Tu Nguyen is listed in the top 15 places, his place will drop down to allow someone else to attend (as he is already invited as defending champion).
If a player is invited and cannot, or does not wish to attend their place will drop down to allow someone else to be invited in their place.
Disputes will be adjudicated by Paul Dale and Jim Grimmett. Their word is final. To allow disputes to be sorted out fairly, full records of every competitor - and their placing - in every tournament during the year will be kept and made available through this web site.
