Given that the cost of a round trip airfare trip and hotel stay from Ontario, Canada to British Columbia, Canada would come to well over $1000, this is a rather generous gift. Here's an edited copy (to conceal the identity of the innocent :lol of the email I received today: "Ontario Professors With the closing of our Pokemon season on it the Georgetown Pokemon Leauge (i.e. Janice and Terry K) decided that we wanted to do something special to close out the 2007/8 season. As a result we decided to hold an Unsanctioned tournament in the format of the Professors Cup to allow the winner a paid airfare and hotel room to the Nationals in Vancouver. I have attached the tournament rules. Paul A. and Matt K. will be judging the competation and I will be acting as the TO. We look forward to you encouraging your friends and league members who are eligable to write the Professors Exam before the tournament so we can have as large a participant pool as possible. Good luck to all. Terry K." Wow, it's really amazing the spirit of giving that is shown in this part of the world. It's too bad that I'm not able to attend Nationals due to an earlier commitment - though I had an open invitation to Nationals given to me back in February that I had to turn down because of it. I hope this event is well supported nevertheless, and I'll encourage as many people who are able to become professors and attend and play. Great idea, great philanthropy, great spirit, great people. Thank you Terry and Janice. :thumb: Edit: Just in case you are wondering - Terry is here on the gym as well - with a rather odd user name! Just kidding, Terry - we all love Psyduck.
