    5pm Registration
    6pm Start


    Based on number of people Majestic Dawn boosters and other Pokemon memorabilia.

    As you can see we are starting the event at 6pm. Therefore we ask that players be over the age of 16 unless accompanied by a parent or adult due to the time the event will likely be ending. This will not be an age seperated event.

    This has been something Jason K. and I have been trying to get together for 2 years now. Now that I have a stable location we can actually pull it off!!!

    I will also try to get my battle road in the same weekend, if PUI says its OK of course :wink:. It should be a great weekend of pokemon fun.

    Jason K. will be organizing a softball game in a nearby park. at 12 pm Saturday, June 7th (Weather permitting). It should be a blast.

    We have the commitment of many from the Lafonte nation to come in and support this. It should be a great event with many familiar names... Where better to practice for Nats, than with the best competition in the World!

    Sign up now at or Call me at, 773-229-0824 if further details are needed.

    See you there!!!

    I'll have to remember not to have my BR weekend that time, then...

    If that's gonna happen, two events in 24 hours, I'd be MORE than willing to lend a hand!!! If not, I can always play...

    Well, you can't post anywhere on the Gym a post whose purpose is to advertise.
    Couching it with "here's a line or two on topic and now... here's my ad!" doesn't get past that.
    Except in the Tournament forums.
    That's what they're here for.
    The other forums are for discussion, not advertising.

    (And of course, trading and selling, as appropriate in their forums)

    I hope this goes well. I am anticipating a mid summer classic in St. Louis as well.

    Ryan, I did throw 2 $200 top prize events in the old WOTC days, that went VERY well.

    PUI has just spoiled everyone with FREE at this point.
