The weather was temperate this past Saturday, although the gray skies and wind posed as a very cold winter day. Our crew assembled on the front steps of Tennessee Brew Works for our third annual Christmas Tournament, A Bootleggers Christmas. We decided way back that these annual Christmas events would be close Music City friends and family only. An invite tournament sort of, but mostly just a gathering of friends. It started at The Lion’s house with 4 of us and some Publix fried chicken. This year we had 23 friends come out to hang after two drops. We had some great prizes and did a raffle, earning an apt $777 for the Tennessee Boys Home.
This year’s format was AA, or Alpha-Alliances, or 93/94 + Ice Age block, or Old School 95 + Alliances. Whatever you want to call it, it was a lot of fun. See below for standings and decks.
Thank you to everyone for coming out and donating to the charity!!! I hope everyone had fun. We had quite a few newcomers at this event, both to Old School and to the group. I’d like to welcome them to the family. Action shots below.
We have at least a couple more posts slated before the end of the year, one of which will be a quick rundown on the Pox deck I played at this event and my thoughts on the AA format. Those will probably cap off the blog for 2019. I’m looking forward to 2020 and early planning for Bootleggers Ball in the next few months. Look for news on that around February/March of next year. Happy Holidays from Music City. ChuggEggNogg.
