The "dog days" of summer are here -named for the dog constellation, not because puppies lay around with their tongues hanging out, and soon the wonderful cool weather of fall will replace the hot humid summer weather (at least here in middle Tennessee). The coming of fall also brings forth the 2017 event the world has been waiting for (I borrowed that straight from a TV commercial telling me what I was waiting for saw it on TV so it must be true!!!). Yep, it's time to start looking for the Good, Bad and Ugly International HOTT Tournament to be played around the world. This is a tournament played using the Hordes of the Things rules (HOTT).

There are 9 legs this year, but all look to be very exciting, and this years theme should prove some very interesting armies Alien Invasion. The Legs are:

Staines/GBnUIT, UK Coordinators are Pete James and Chris Denman covering for Tim Moore who will be out of pocket.

North Yorkshire, UK Coordinator Bob Carter

Republic of Texas, US Coordinator Blake Radetsky

Tornado Alley, US Coordinator John Hovey

Shetland Islands, UK Coordinator Mike McEwan

Glasgow, UK Coordinator Euan Caldwell

Mid West, US Coordinator Bob Beattie

Atlanta, US Coordinator Tom Thomas

Nashville, US Coordinator Terry Webb

Theme armies are not required to participate, and most locations have loaner armies available, so if anyone is interested please let me know and I'll see about getting you in touch with the coordinator for the Leg you're interested in.

In addition to the local prizes provided by each Coordinator, there will be the Barker Award for the overall best theme army, and the Stronghold Award for the overall best Stronghold. These are submitted and put up on various forums for world wide voting.

Dates are just starting to be firmed up and I'll post those shortly.

Hi Ivan, Very glad to hear it. Which Leg will you be attending?

I have the following dates for the some of he Legs for this year's Good, Bad and Ugly International HOTT Tournament.

Staines 9/3
The Shetlands 9/17
Nashville 10/21
North Yorkshire 10/29
Glasgow 11/7

I will advise the dates for the remaining three Legs as I receive them. They are The Republic of Texas (San Antonio), Tornado Alley (Dallas), Atlanta

It is not too late to plan on joining in, and if interested I can help get you I touch with a Leg Coordinator for the event you are interested in.

Again, in addition to the local prizes, there will be the yearly Barker Award for the best over all theme army and the new Stronghold Award for the best Stronghold over all. The theme this year is Alien Invasion (Not of this World) but a theme army is not required to join in, and most legs are able to supply loaner armies if needed.

The 2017 Good, Bad and Ugly International Tournament marches on, with the Shetlands Leg coming up September 17th. Mike McEwan runs that Leg, and has a good group of gamers who via for the win.

After that we won't have another Leg until October. Stay tuned, and remember – "Look to the skies!"
