After much consideration, I have decided to keep Cotton Belt Con in May. For those of you who don’t already know, Cotton Belt Con is an Open Gaming Style 18xx Tournament in Memphis, TN.
I just got back from signing the contract at the host hotel and am pleased to announce that this year the Cotton Belt Con will be held on Friday, May 18th, to Sunday, May 20th.
Quality Suites Near Wolfchase Galleria will be the host hotel. This is the same location as the previous 2 years. The address of the hotel is 8166 Varnavas Dr. Cordova, TN 38016.
They have created a room block for us of $89 per night for a suite with 2 double beds, and $79 per night for a suite with a king bed. To get these excellent rates, please call (901) 386-4600 and say you are with the Cotton Belt Con.
As for the tournament, there will be usual plaques for first and second place as well as the much sought after flavor prizes, such as highest run of the weekend, first to lay a silver tile, etc.
What is the cost for such an exciting weekend of 18xx enthusiasm? Registration will be $40 before April 30th, and $50 at the door. Payment can be sent via PayPal or Google Wallet to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I look forward to seeing everyone there.
Play well. Play Smart.
