    Mike Farrington (active duty Marine) and his family will be leaving Florida to be stationed in the carolina's.

    Mike and his family will be GREATLY missed here in the sunshine state. He is honest, has the Marine core Values and integrity. This is an AWESOME family. The people in the Carolina's will be happy to get to know them.
    The have a great sense of humor and are fun to hang out with.

    Mike, Julie, Garrett andd Lauren will see you at future Pokemon events.

    we love you guys.

    Whatever. You still owe us for the Christians.

    /No, Stephen VanDerventer doesn't count.

    I had the honor to meet and work with Mike Farrington this weekend @ NC States. Very nice fella and his son is a very good player. FL's loss is NC's gain. I will look forward to seeing them at some events over there.

    So that means...Orion and Justin will be able to sweep Southeast Regionals in Seniors? Ah well, good luck for whatever the Farringtons are doing :)

    Dont assume anything, young grasshopper (said in my best David Carridine voice).

    I dont believe the entire family will be in Carolia until the summer, meaning Garret can run roughshod on last time in FL for reg's, unless they roadtrip up.

    Hey, I'm feeling loved! (And after the week I've had so far (and it's just Tuesday) I REALLY REALLY need it!

    Did I ever meet the Christians Jake?

    Oh, Stephan VanDeventer was a player who came up here from Florida. But he's back in Florida now, so we'll gladly take the Farringtons and anything else you Floridians want to throw in to the bundle. :thumb:

    Erik, you guys started playing shortly after we moved away (June 2003). That's too bad, because I hear nothing but good things about you and your brother.

    Maybe I'll introduce myself at Nationals!

    Hey it always hurts to say goodbye to a friend, but the way you make Mike sound, it seems more like the United States and Marine Core's gain and no ones loss. Mike hope you have an easy move(if thats possible) and everything works out with your new house.

    Hope for the best on the move. I've met him and his son, they're cool people. I got to hang out with them all after NC States, and it was a true blast. I hope everything will work out for them, and it'll be good to see them all.

    Sounds awesome! I'll be the the guy that looks like me in my avatar, haha.

    I thought you guys were actually talking about Christians, since we are in the Bible belt.

    Erik, you'll recognize me because I'm old, bald, and fat. Totally unlike anyone else at Origins. LOL (Hey, I actually cracked myself up on that one - Just go in one of the D&D rooms to see what I mean!)

    Thanks Mike R! Believe me, moving back is something that I think about often. I love it up there. (Florida is nice, but Raleigh is really great.) We actually come through quite often (2-3 times a year) on my way to visit family in WV. (We go out of our way (instead of going up through Charlotte) just so we can visit people.)

    You're going to love the Fearingtons. Garrett is terrific young man and Mike is a really good guy.

    Yeah, NC is lucky to get Mike and Garrett.

    Mike is like the classiest guy I have ever met by far.
