    As Nats is still going on, I will update this as needed.

    I arrive Wednesday and go pick up my badge. I have no need to register for the main event, because in on judge staff.

    On Thursday, that is our first staff day. I get chosen to staff the 2nd shift and get to be the Seniors HJ for the 11 am modified. Then i get to judge some of the 8 man pickup events.

    Friday is the professor Cup. I choose to play venomoth/parasect. I get off to a great start and go 2-0, then i lose 2, win 1, and lose 1, and win 1, and lose the last round, going 4-4.

    Congrats to Bullados for winning the prof cup!!!

    Saturday is day 1 of Nats. This is also a day of no return for me (I will explain later) Anyways, we play 2 rounds and have lunch. then it was 4 more rounds and then a dinner break. then 3 more rounds before the "T64"

    Now its time for my day of no return. I have been dating my girlfriend for 2 years now, and Just last month I bought the ring to give to her. During Round 4 We get Erin (a_shy_girl_1999) to come to the Nats desk for a job to do. When she gets there, I get on my knee and propose to her!!!

    and the moment of truth........
