Tournament Structure:
Age-Modified Swiss with a cut after a certain number of rounds (determined by attendance, most likely around 6-8) to single-elimination rounds (the number in these single-elimination rounds will be determined by the number of people in each age group, most likely either 4 or 8) that will determine the champion for each age group. The age groups are 10 and under, 11-14, and 15 and over. Each age group will have seperate single-elimination rounds at the end to determine the champions.

Right now, here are the side events that are being considered...

1. Super Sealed Challenge ($20)- Players will get one theme deck from one of the EX sets and 3 corresponding boosters to build a 40 card deck.
2. Constructed- Format to be determined
3. League- Ongoing, lots of promos to be earned!

The first one is a Sealed Deck format where each player will get one theme deck from one of the Nintendo sets (Ruby and Saphire, Sandstorm, Dragons, TATM) and 3 booster packs from the set that his or her theme deck is from and will build a 40 card deck out of the cards pulled from both the packs and the theme deck.

The second could be either Unlimited, Eon Modified, or Neon Modified (Genesis through Skyridge with LC, Wizards blackstar promos 21+, Wizards Best of Game promos).

The third basically means that he'll be handing out Darkness NRG promos, Metal NRG promos, and Flygon holo promos to everyone, with extras going to the winners of each tournament (probably the Winner versions there)
