Huzzah: KitS Results and Great Fun Had!

Huzzah 2012: Winners of the Knights in the Sky Tournament.

Huzzah 2012: Winners of the Knights in the Sky Tournament. 3rd Place: Bill Zona, 2nd Place: Shawn Tester, and Ace of Aces: Eric Hatch

Ten pilots took to the Huzzah skies this year for a chance at the coveted Huzzah KitS Cup. It was an engaging contest with a lot of fun cross table talk between the players. The fray was thick at times and the pilots were hungry for victory.

Twice the Central Powers drove the allies off the board entirely clearing the sky of Allied planes. There were several memorable critical hits, including flaming planes and forced glides. Jerry and I had a great time running the tournament and watching the furballs.

After a grueling series of missions, Eric Hatch once again dominated the skies. He took the Knights in the Sky Huzzah Aerodrome cup for the 3rd year in a row and made ace with 5 kills! It was a very close contest with Shawn Tester and Bill Zona coming in close behind. The scores were extremely closely matched for third place with Pete English and Chris getting barely edged out by a single point.

I have already heard that there is planning to wrest the title away from Eric next year. He has a number of successful tactics that the players were talking about.  I suspect that folks will really be gunning for him next time!

This year there were a number of great games at the convention. The showcase game was a beautifully crafted Boxer Rebellion scenario. The group, led by Andy Niven, who constructed it all before parceling it out for painting, did an amazing job on the terrain. The buildings even included two hidden built-in dice towers with the results tumbling into an adjacent courtyard. There were a lot of great looking and well run games in all periods, along with many excellent GMs. I know I had a blast!

Huzzah had a great raffle, as always, with lots of terrain, games, and rules being won! I had a lot of fun playing a Pike and Musket game despite the fact that my English Archers could not hurt the enemy and our center crumbled like a house of cards.

I think it is fair to say that most folks had a great time! I hope that next year, if you have not come to the convention, you will!
