Tournaments: When and Where
I encourage competitive players to know when and where events of interest take place. Especially official Indie events. As for individuals who have not yet attended a prize-based competitive event, I recommend checking out your FLGS to see if competitive play is for you. FLGS glory may instill in you a fervor to attend larger events.

I've posted these links, because each has very significant tournament information and GW has them in the deep shadowed corners of their website. Most people don't even know such pages/information exists. This is one area where GW needs to seriously step up their game if they intend to run a competitive Circuit. I personally recommend that, in time, they dedicate an easy to read portion of their 40k page to competitive tournament information.
