Huzzah Hobbies RTT Feb 2nd, Recap and photos!

Morning all!

So we successfully concluded our RTT at Huzzah hobbies over the weekend. Everything went smoothly and we got to test out the new NOVA missions plus paint scoring!

A special thanks goes to Huzzah Hobbies for being such a great host! We hope to do another RTT there in the near future.

So recap in case you don't want to go through the wall of text / photos

I'm sure Mike will put up his thoughts and event feedback shortly so i'll try and keep it more general.

We had filled our 20 spots, and had several people on the wait list. Day of, only 14 showed up. We called the folks on the wait list and those who were unable to make it to see what was going on. It seems it was just one of those days, ranging from car issues, illness and even one hospitalization.

Lesson to all of you out there in the future, always show up if you want to go an event! PEOPLE ALWAYS DROP THE DAY OF!

It was ok though, 14 people is still a good event, it just meant we could not give out an invitational ticket for the winner ( as we needed the full 20 ). But it did mean that the prize support we had could now be spread out a bit better.

We started the day off with 3 dozen doughnuts from shoppers, which in case you have not seen, are enormous and amazing. Games started at 11:10, and we broke for lunch at 1:50. We got pizza and sodas for the entire crew, and apparently hit the supply needs right on the nose as there were only 3-4 slices left over when the dust settled. Games got off without a hitch, and the last game ended at 8. We had people out the door by 8:30. So all and all not so bad time wise.

Other than the notes I'll add for the photos below, I'll just mention that I personally find it really difficult to be a TO. It has nothing to do with my ability to judge, make rules calls, organize, or talk to people. I just get agitated because when I see all those games, I want to play too! So it kind of grates on me the entire time as I constantly want to jump in on the action. So its not difficult in a bad way.
