Want to participate in the official Chozo Sanctuary Mario Kart 8 thread, but don't know all the details? Look no further! Well, look a little further, like at the image below:

1/2017 update: As noted in the above graphic, the tournament code is now a pinned message in the Mario Kart text chat on our Discord server.
I'll be trying to post the result here after every tournament that people participate in, and we can use this as the place to find out who's going to make it for the tournament, post videos, and have general chatter about the racing.
We also have non-Nintendo voice chat via the Discord client (available for iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, and probably Linux). Check out the voice chat thread for all the info.
Updated 5/22/2017: Special Birthday Tournament "Rules"
Birthday tournaments happen during the week of a regular racer's birthday (unless scheduling for the birthday person requires it to be pushed back), during which all people racing are encouraged to race as the birthday person's Mii. To be eligible for a birthday tournament, a person needs to have participated in at least 3 tournaments, and actually want there to be a tournament for their birthday in which everyone uses their Mii.
Miis should be set to have copying turned on if you want to give people the opportunity to make changes and rename the Mii. If copying is turned off, everyone will have the same name as the original person, and look the same. It is, of course, optional to allow people to change your Mii, but keep that in mind if you want people to be able to change things (including the name).
The birthday person will have two birthday wishes that can be made! Those are chosen from the following (defaults if no choice made are shown in bold - speed is the only one likely to change, if we decide that 200cc is our "standard" speed at some time):
One of the following:
- A set of 4 races that must always be chosen, if available (2 if playing in Battle Mode on Deluxe).
- A set of 4 races that must never be chosen, if they come up (2 if playing in Battle Mode on Deluxe).
- Everyone must choose Random for every race.
One of the following:
- What speed/mode we race in
- What items are enabled
- Shells Only
- Bananas Only
- Mushrooms Only
- Frantic Mode
- What vehicles can be used
- Karts Only
- Bikes Only
- Control method
- Tilt Controls Only
- COM difficulty
The birthday person may wave one or both of these wishes if they just want to have a standard tournament.
Other themes/suggestions might be in place depending on the person whose birthday it is (like racing on Gold karts for a golden birthday), but the birthday person will always get to choose two of the listed parameters.
I've purposefully not specified 50cc or 100cc as a race speed, since those are so slow, and also removed the option to have No Items because I'm of the firm belief that Mario Kart is not meant to be a "purely driving skill" game. Battle is currently only available in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as a choice, because we all know that Battle Mode in MK 8 Wii U sucks.
Feel free to invite your friends - if they're friends of a member, they're friends of us (kind of). Remember:
