    just to make sure, the Unlimited format includes nearly everything right? I mean from Base Set on right? I've got a great deck that I've wanted to test for years but no one has had an unlimited format where I have been.
    This will be my best chance to.

    Unlimited is everything BUT:

    Birthday Pikachu
    Ancient Mew
    Anything from Ex Dragons (as it's not leagl until the street date ;) )

    If you're lacking a POP ID, we'll have some we can issue out at the event. If you have a POP ID, please make sure to bring it with you as we have no way to look them up (unless your local TO happens to show up and have all the POP IDs that they've handed out).

    My old DCI membership number wouldn't count?
     
  11. DaytonGymLeader

    DaytonGymLeader New Member

    NO it will not! If you are you a Professor, you should already have your POP ID. If you don't have one, don't sweat it, we'll have some for your consumption.

    Unbelievable. I went through all the hassle of getting a DCI membership card at the 2001 STS, and I never got the chance to use it. Chances are I'll probably never use this one either unless I make my own league and tournaments.

    Anyone coming, bring your trading stock. We're looking to finish out the e card sets and get some of the Nintendo league promos.

    See you there.

    Leod, I'd kill myself lugging all of my cards up there. I've got 3 full 3 inch binders full of cards, plus the Southern Islands binder. My backpack with all of the cards I have weighs 35 pounds! Just what are you looking for and I'll bring them in.
