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.

I didn’t just attend. I placed 3rd . . .at my first. 😀
Tempest is freaking awesome.
PTKS is awesome too . . .
Speaking of tournament travel, DixieCon is coming up. Last I check, flights were $279 on Southwest. Anyone interested in going? We’d have to decide quickly…
I’m in and going. Jim, I believe, was at 96.4% probability based on his last comment to me.
