Or... you can treat the members of the community like adults who can read and tell the difference between a local gig and an "official" high level event, especially when it's posted in the forum for local events and not high level events, which, last I looked, had its own forum.
Or hell, post some official clarifying language in a response post disavowing the CC of all knowledge of this thing. That way if people somehow still manage to get confused you can rightly say you tried to warn them.
But instead you choose to squash the creative endeavors of people actually a) trying to grow the game and b) trying to work within the existing CC structure.
Keep this up and you're going to find out that the CC isn't needed to promote the game. There's enough other ways to get the word out that the CC Organized Play forum is a bit player.
Gonna look real silly when ToC events are outdrawing CC gigs, "high level" or not.

Another option would be to petition the Department of Organized Play to have your tournament officially recognized for the level you're advertising.
Dude. It's a Level 1 event in CC-world. If I have to get permission from the Director of OP to run locals, this is a much bigger issue than I thought it was....
