Below is the full details & trailer posted on their site:
The Arkansas Regional Knockouts (A.R.K.) Tournament Series was created by ARFGN members ARK SmokeMaxX and ARK XI to measure the level of Arkansas talent against neighboring states. It is Arkansas ONLY Major fighting game tournament and one of the largest recurring events in the South.
A.R.K. III had over 150 people, over $1000 in bonus pots, and special guest EG Justin Wong! You can bet A.R.K. IV will be even bigger than that!
Please join us, have a good time, and hopefully win some big money! We are expecting approximately 200 people to be here!

*Playstation Pad Users: We encourage people to bring their own pads and converters for the 360 games. However, if you are unable to do so, we will have PS2 -> 360 converters (they also do PS2 -> PS3 and 360 -> PS3) available to buy at $10 or rent at $3 ($10 collateral required). These converters have not been thoroughly tested, so they are not guaranteed to be lagless. However, initial tests as well as anecdotes from Tech Talk and Youtube seem to suggest that they have none/low lag.
$15 Entrance Fee. This covers the entire weekend. Included in the entrance fee are free pizza and drinks as well as unlimited casuals, thus it cannot be waived for spectators.
$5 Per Minor Tournament Pot Fee (???).
$10 Per Major Tournament Pot Fee (???).
Team tournaments are TBD.
Prizes: All pots (except Smash) are split 70/20/10. Smash pots will be distributed at a 60/30/10 ratio.
