Thanks to Rick for setting up this year's scenario. He's done several in the past and they turn out great every time. No complainers! Yes, your airplane will be on par with everyone else's and yes, everyone gets a choice (even the last guy to choose).
One brief warm up game will begin at 11 o'clock. Expect it to be ended early ("called on turns") deliberately. The tournament will start immediately thereafter. It would be great if we could roll dice on the tourney around 1 pm.
Okay, here is the usual disclaimer for our handicapping article. First, no fair getting mad. Secondly, the author excuses himself from the handicap list due to a conflict of interest (I'm interested in winning this conflict). Thirdly, you gotta be able to take a joke. Okay? Ready, set...
6.7 trillion (to the 9th power) to 1
Actually I'm not even sure that's a number. I just found out today that Michael is competing and I'm trying to cast a spell on him. We can't seem to beat him any other way. He's won multiple Armistice Day tournaments and multiple Red Baron Fights. We can't uninvite him because he's a former champion and is perpetually eligible for every Indy title til freaking doomsday. The only remaining option is to blow up his car, but every hit man I call wants his license number and I don't have it (please contact the webmaster). Unless somebody finds a way to beat this guy, it does not look good for the rest of the field.
4 to 1
For those crawling out from under a rock, it should be known that Rick is having an incredible year. He has over 20 aces on his roster now. Rick won the 2018 Whosyercon Open, won Red Baron Fight XXIX and can now complete the hat trick by taking Armistice Day and securing the only Triple Crown victory in history. But it does seem that Rick took the week off at the Society Min Con in 2018, finishing a distant 29th. That was two places behind... Jim Barber. Maybe we're okay after all.
