Chattanooga Open Tournament

Hello all,
It is time to announce a new tournament! The Chattanooga Open will be held in beautiful Chattanooga, TN, USA on June 4-5th, 2022. Why this name you ask? Because Chattanooga just sounds cool and it is Open to everyone of all skill levels! You just need a knowledge of the base game rules (other special rules will be covered in briefings)
The format will be 6 games (swiss round style), spread over 2 days. While it is competitive, the most important thing is to have fun! With the swiss round style after round 1 or 2 you should always be playing someone close to your skill (or luck!) level.
The scenarios are already published, some familiar, some familiar with a twist, and some not so familiar…but all are related to D-Day (either the landings or within a few days after the invasion). The scenario list will be made known at a later date, but within plenty of time to “practice” before the tournament.
The venue will be the Charles Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center. It is an amazing museum that honors some of our military’s most selfless heroes.
For those that want even more action, we are planning on a full D-Day Landings play through Friday, June 3rd before the tournament.
Registration will be $50 for the tournament and it will include lunch both days as well as admission to the museum. To guarantee a spot in the tournament I ask that you bring a copy of the base game (I have a lot of Memoir stuff, but not enough for everyone!). However, even if you don’t bring one you should still be able to join as we only need half as many base games as competitors.
To help cover the cost for printing, there will be an option to take maps home and for playing in the D-Day Landings game for a small cost (fees yet to be calculated, but just wanting to give a heads up).
Registration links and rules will be made available soon after the first of the year, so keep your eyes peeled for that! If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. Hopefully, I’ll see you there!

This sounds amazing and I offer respect for attempting it!
I look forward to see how events unfold in the South with regard to the pandemic so I can determine if my family and I can attend.

This sounds great. I hope to bone up on my M44 skills though at this point I don’t have the D-Day maps. Thanks for the early heads-up Jon!

You won’t need the D-Day maps. All games in the tournament will be standard scenarios and special rules will be discussed in briefings before each match.
