The Potomac Tea & Knife Society announced today that it's changing the dates for its 12th annual Tempest in a Teapot tournament.
Traditionally held the weekend before Columbus Day, this year, the PTKS will hold the event October 15 to 17 in Falls Church, Va. That's the weekend after Columbus Day. The change was necessary to accommodate the schedules of several PTKS board members.
The Weasels are modeled after the PTKS, whom we affectionately refer to as our wacky uncles. Tempest is one of North America's most prestigious tournaments. I've attended four of them, including the 2003 DipCon and 2005 World DipCon. Thom Comstock has attended twice, and Jeremiah Peterson, Grant Smith and Peter Yeargin, once each.
