    LaGrange is about 1 hour east of South Bend. LaGrange is located 45 miles from the Ohio border, 15 miles from the Michgan border.

    http://www.pokemonleagues.com/events/citychampionships04/lagrangemap.gif is a map, South bend is off to the left side of the map but isn't on it.

    This map has both South Bend and LaGrange on it. It shows the locations of where I held City Championships http://www.pokemonleagues.com/events/citychampionships04/citychampionshiplocations.jpg

    Bumping this back up, now that the State Championships are over, this is our next big tournament. I just hope this has a bigger turnout then the State Championship in Indiana.

    2.50 for a pop? that must be wrong....it's usually .50......
    Also, do you think this'll last about as long as the states tourney?

    No $2.50 for a Hamburger, chips and pop. Kinda like a combo.

    Pop is $0.75 , I have no control over food costs for this since I am not in charge of food like I normally am.

    Yes this should last as long or longer then States. I am expecting a lot more people for this event. I am not sure how long our State tournament lasted in Indiana but since we are doing best 2 of 3 for finals like we did in States it should take about the same time depending on Swiss Rounds and the number of players in the tournament,
