Scheduled Competitions

The BJCP “Scheduled Competitions” list is always current, and shows all BJCP-SCP events around the world that have been registered as of a week or so ago.  (It takes a 3 – 6 days for the database to refresh into the webpages).  The BJCP makes rather few requirements of sanctioned competitions.  Read about that in the Sanctioned Competition Manual.
