Derby tourney ?s

With all these posts about the derby tourneys im interested in getting the scoop. I assume it is a NL tourney but are they held every week or month? By reading the post it is a $50 buy-in now is that a flat $50 or is there re-buys/add-on? When do signups start and how many do they take? Also what is the blind structure like and how fast do they go up? I played at Cache Creek in their Thursday night tourney that has unlimited re-buys the first hour then an add-on during the break. The blinds seemed to go up about every 15 mins but the amount they went up made you think you were in a turbo tourney. Thanks for any response!!!

I think they have tourneys each week. One is Tuesday (I think @6:30pm)
the other is on Saturdays (@8:30 or 9:00am).

They are NL freezeouts (No rebuys). You start with 800 or 1000 in chips, athe blinds go up every 15 or 20 minutes.

These are VERY popular tournaments - they start building the list an hour and a half before the tourney and (from what I understand) it always fills up and there are usually 20-30 players on the reserve list. Those on the reserve can take a vacated seat within the first 3 or 4 rounds. According to their "rules", you can't get on the list anyway other than showing up and standing in line. You can't call, you can't have someone else get you a seat. (The day I played they let someone a few spots in front of me sign up like 5 players, but I don't think it's supposed to work that way. I suppose you could get someone else to stand in line for you, but they can only get one spot.)

They seat 45 or 50 players to start. They use 2 blackjack type tables for two of the tourney tables which are pretty uncomfortable to play poker at. The dealer I had was competent, and the players were loose in general.
