Read this post, it helps with your question, and shows you all the regular scheduled tournaments played on fibs.

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.
