Can you hold a tournament without judged awards?

We’ve been thinking about holding a small tournament but rounding up enough qualified (or otherwise) judges is always a problem, so we were wondering if it’s legal to hold a tournament without offering any judging or judged awards.

Take a look at the 2017/2018 qualifying criteria - page 1 11th bullet: Tournaments and Leagues with 24 or more teams must offer Design and Excellence Awards. So it looks like you do.

Actually, the table on Page 2 indicates that Excellence Award must be awarded no matter what the number of qualifying spots the RECF Regional Manager authorizes.

What document are you looking at?

If you run a non-qualifying tournament (a scrimmage) you do not need to offer awards.

Ok, thanks! That helps with the decisions.
