I'm pretty sure that the best way to create a new event is to write up trial event rules, submit it to soinc, wait a long time, then get really really lucky. Maybe if we had a poll or petition we could do it faster, but it would have to be a very good event idea.
Close. The steps are: write up the event (templates are available here:, convince some regional and state tournament supervisors to run it at their tournaments for a year or two (contact info for all states is here then have them submit it to the national rules committees for consideration as a full event.
