Hammer in the New Year: Huzzah Hobbies GT - January 23-24

Friend of the blog Elphilo is running a GT in January at Huzzah Hobbies in Ashburn, VA. The Hammer in the New Year GT will take place Saturday, January 23, through Sunday, January 24. This five round event will be running ITC FAQ and Missions as a great prep for anyone going to LVO, or anyone who wants to try out the format in a pretty competitive event. 


The field is limited to 32 players, so be sure to reserve your spot while you still can. I know some of my local guys are planning on making the trip - I would love to but don't think the schedule will work for me. That said, Phil always runs great events and the competition should be fierce and fun.
Huzzah Hobbies is a great spot for an event, and I've made the trip up just for some tournaments there in the past, including this last summer for the Road to NOVA.


The schedule looks like this:

  • Saturday, January 23:
    • 9:00: Check-in
    • 10:00-1:00: Round 1
    • 1:00-2:00: Lunch
    • 2:00-5:00: Round 2
    • 5:15-8:15: Round 3
  • Sunday, January 24:
    • 8:30: Doors open
    • 9:00-12:00: Round 4
    • 12:00-12:30: Lunch
    • 12:45-3:45: Round 5
    • 4:00: Award Ceremony

That's two days of some great games against some quality armies and opponents, not to mention some time Saturday night to socialize and hang out with people who are there. Anyone interested in tournaments in the area should try to make it out if they can.

Again, get all the details here, including lodging recommendations and directions.
