    Hello Everyone! Judy and I wanted to congratulate all of you on your awesome performances at Worlds. We had a great weekend running the Legends Awaken Pre Release at TJ's Sunday by updating everyone round by round. You guys showed the rest of the Pokemon world that yes we have great players in the North East as well. We are going to celebrate this upcoming weekend with CAKE for everyone.

    We are proud of all of you. Not just Dylan L who won the senior division, Nick K who came in third and Noah L who came in 4th in the junior division. Has any area ever had a first,, third and a third player in top 16 (way to go Jon B) finish in an age division in the same year?

    I don't want to simply call us Team New England as we have the Watervilet, NY league in our network as well. There were many people who came out of our area this past year to play in both Nats and Worlds. So just know when you get back from worlds that the rest of us are waiting to do league this weekend and celebrate your success. CAKE FOR EVERYONE!!

    I'll make a surprise apparence to personally say congrats to our amazing players. I knew they all had potential (cept Jon. He's just a donk. :p) and it definately has shown this season. Time to prep my little brother for a conquest next year.

    North East Family

    Let us not forget Mark G., Petey F., and Thomas A. from Juniors. They are our North East family too! These three JRs showed class and had fun.

    For those of you who were there, TT and Petey got bumped T32. TT faced eight, yes eight GG decks. Not a single other type of deck. I am proud of TT. He is a great boy. He is very happy with his performance with a deck that he made himself and wanted to play, Amphi/Zong.

    After getting bumped by his friend Sean from Malaysia, hes spent his time with Noah between rounds - talking, supporting, and being there for him. This was an unbelievable show of true sportsmanship on my son's part.

    I am proud of our North East folks - all of them. Being a Judge at Worlds I couldn't express myself as I would have liked. Now that it is over, I am humbled by all of your great performances.

    I am a little sad though that my boy is growing up. Next year he is in Seniors.

    Congrats to all.

    Sincerely,
    Steve

    Great props to the North East people. Especially Peter F. and Thomas A in Juniors. Both played tremendously hard, and had a great showing. Also, congrats to New Jersey's Drew G., Frankie D, and Jimmy B. for all making Top 32. North East and New England defiantly had one of the best showings this year, congratulations to all who played, I'm a little upset how I was qualified for both, but choose Video Game instead and lost first round. However, this was truly a awesome event, and everyone made it enjoyable. People underestimate the area we play in, now they'll see. Thanks to everyone for making Worlds such an awesome event.

    Thomas A

    PokeDaddy is 1000 percent (Noah says 1001 percent) right about Thomas A's sportsmanship, camaraderie, and maturity. There are many ways to define a champion, but some are more important than others. TT has the right stuff.

    You know, I am going to let that box price stay up, and not tag it for selling outside the selling area.

    Congrats to all my NE friends!

    What a GREAT showing!

    boxes

    Sorry about that. Feel free to take that post down.

    I wish I had been at worlds to watch our kids help each other. What Thomas did for Noah was what this game is all about. Pokemon is one of the ONLY games I have seen where the level of sportsmanship is so high. One of the things I really like about having my store is getting to watch these little guys grow up.

    What Thomas did for Noah was wonderful! But, I have to say that the entire New England community was there for each other. The players and families were checking in on each other between rounds and encouraging, and supporting through wins and losses, high fiving between rounds.....it was truly a community effort of Epic proportions!!!

    I'm truly thankful for each and every one of the players and family members who were in attendance and back home with Tom and Judy supporting and encouraging all of the kids! Thanks everyone!!!! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Well, I did.
    Tom is a PTO and is authorized to sell in the selling forum.
    Best to not mix content and treat different members differently than others, especially for no good reason.
    Tom can post in the selling forum if desired.
