    Good Morning Pokegym!

    It is great to be back with live updates, hope everyone has had a great summer since our Nationals update. Registration will finish up at 10am, so we are still entering in players right now. Once we are done, I'll post final numbers for everyone. To make sure there is enough room for all the players to play in the Grinder, PUI has moved part of the tournament into the open gaming area. Which is pretty cool they are doing as much as they can to make sure as many player that want to play in the Grinder Can.

    Just a reminder here are some items during the tournament:

    1) We can not tell you what decks are being played. We are in the Hive (Back Area) and do not see any decks.

    2) We can not tell you individual player stats or how they are doing in the tournament.

    3) We will try to post as much as possible, but please remember we are in the back running the tournament, and that takes priority.

    Thanks everyone, and talk with you shortly.

    GLB

    Right now it is 8 invites. Invites are based off of what PUI gives out not how many players are in the tournament.

    It is bittersweet reading this, I was supposed to be there but due to uncontrollable circumstances the trip was canceled, good luck to all.
