what tournaments are like
Well, I can't really speak for national youth tournaments, but I've been to a collegiate tournament and another, and they have the same basic elements. You need to bring a regulation set and clock (sometimes both are provided) and pencil and paper would be nice too. If there's long time controls, be sure to invest your time. You don't really have to race. Always write down the move and double check before you touch any pieces :P it helps to avoid dumb mistakes. Ah right, and be wary of touch-move rules :P Get plenty of sleep. That's about all i can think of!

We are thinking about going, its hard for us to go to these things. We are going to the National Scholastic championship in Atlanta. Are you going to try to make it to that one?
