In general watch SHOUTS for instructions from the TD, right now most of the tourneys are run on automatic by TourneyBot (sometimes there is also a Human TD).

TourneyBot will shout something like "to register 'tell TourneyBot register 4567'..."

Where 4567 is the tourney number.

depending on what client you use you need to open a chat dialog with the player named TourneyBot and tell them 'register 4567'
Or maybe you can use a direct FIBS command and send 'tell TourneyBot register 4567'

If you are a Phone user you will not see shouts so I suggest looking for '(TourneyBot)' and send a 'subscribe' message so it will TELL you most
things it SHOUTS.

Hey diceking!

Sorry, I got here so late and sorry you're just using an iPad, but if you can open up a chat window with TourneyBot, you should be able to get the notices that way from TourneyBot who will tell you how to register and who to play next. 

I have no personal knowledge of iPads, but I just looked up iPad2 and it looks much like a mini computer.  If you are able to see shouts, then instructions are always there to see.  If you are able to download an interface to use on Fibs, I recomment javafibs.  Sorry, I don't know much about iPads, but that would be the way to go if possible.
