"The Smoking Boots" 40K club
« on: August 23, 2012, 01:39:24 PM »
Ok, here are the rules.  To join the club there is one and only one requirement. You must have FINISHED last in a Battleground Venue Tournament (this includes outside groups like "Feast of Blades" etc,.).  If you drop from the tournament you are not qualified, you need to be there to feel the burn of the boots.  That being said I have gone back two years on the BB to find the people who are initially qualified to become charter members.  They are listed below (people who qualify more than once have there first loss listed only).  Also I may not have found every tournament so if I'm missing one, let me know, and I apologize if I misspelled anyone's name. 

Feast of Blades (8/4/12)---------------"Mike" MM3791 (not sure who this is)
Singles Tournament (6/16/12)---------Ron McKim
Doubles Tournament (5/26/12)--------Tom ?

We should come up with a date and time for the first meeting.  Thursday seems to be the day for it in Plainville, but I'm open to other days.

I would say who ever had to eat the bye in the last round of an event is the lowest finisher.

Possibly, I didn't look as deep into the points.  But if the person with the bye had enough points in the other two matches to not be at the bottom, then probably not.  But if the bye was their only points then yes.

Well we (or rather I, but I think there is enough support for it) decided to form a club of everyone who got the "smoking Boots" award at a BG 40K tournament.  You don't have to join if you don't want to.  Kind of like the "Mystery Men" of 40K, we're not the A-List players who win all the time...We're the OTHER guys :)  I figure we can get together, work on our lists and tactics, and get better.  And have a cool t-shirt.

I've been given this award before, but not at a BG event.  Does that count?  :P
