umm get a note saying you have a tournament and they have no choice but to let you out. ONLY IF YOUR PARENT/GARIDEAN (sp) signs it.

tourneys i go to are during the weekend, try to find websites where it lists tourneys in your state, then just pick and choose

If your parents will let you, just have them call you in sick. I honestly wouldn't miss school just to play in a local tournament. If it's PSP/NPPL, then I might consider it. Take it from someone who missed 35 days of school last year, you do not want to miss much school!

wtf...how'd you miss that many days. Did you fail. Anywho, most tournies other than like NPPL and PSP are during the weekend. I'm reffing a local tourny tommorw and like 13 5 man teams + 2 extras are showing up. (7 times 13 = 91 ppl...i think).

once you get into the bigger tournies, you may need to miss school. get your parents to talk to the dean (or whatever you have) and if he/she says no, call in sick.
