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.
