This format runs on the Best of Show Placement Structure only.
Local CircuitLocal circuits consists of local venues outside of the regional circuit. The competition format used depends on the size of the event. Note however if attendance turn out for the hobby events is large, the extended local set up maybe used even if the attendance for the convention as a whole is less than 200.
