    FUN CONTEST: Guess the Damage Counters!

    I`m offering this fun contest for everyone to have a chance to win a Gameboy Advance Pokemon Sapphire Version game cartridge for Gameboy Advance!! What you do is try to guess the amount of Damage Counters in the jar. Closest person to the correct # of Damage counters in the jar wins the prize! In case of a tie, the winner will be decided randomly by die roll between the tied contestants. Anyone can enter this contest (meaning parents and siblings of players can enter) but each person only gets one guess slip to cast their best guess. You must be present to win.


    There will be a limited amount of Official Hidden Legends Prerelease T-Shirts on sale, so you better grab them before they are gone! Prices for S-XL are $11.50 and XX-XXX are $13.00.

    Theme decks, huh? I'm sure I'd do well using a theme deck instead of taking chances with 6 packs. (I have terrible luck with packs, as shown in my pathetic 25th place ranking in the last prerelease... :( )

    Mark: No one will always win! Just keep trying. If you do go the Theme Deck Route,do remember that 10- and their parents are given first priority and the Theme Deck event is limited to 24 players. :)

    PS: Hope you can make it down here!The Rockville HL Prerelease will be the following weekend.Not sure which day.

    Thanks for the dates, I've never been able to make it to a tourney in Stafford (my dad doesn't want to drive me somewhere thats an hour away, understandably), but I shoudl be there at Dream Wizards. Still can't believe my sister won a box at the TMTA prerelease.

    I know. I come to these tournaments just to play and have fun (and to also be an envy to the Pokemon players here in Fredericksburg :D). If you remember my performance in the Theme Deck tournament last May (or was it June?), you'll know why I would rather use a Theme Deck... ;)

    Have the top door prize be a box of HL. I think that would be the best... Just my opinion. Hopefully I can still make it. Might have to work.... :mad:
    If it means crying to get out of work then so be it.... :D

    TG, I havent heard of PUI saying anything yet but you never know...I`ll keep everyone posted if they do something like this.

    FP, A box of HL would be sweet, but I doubt that they`ll give us enough where I could do that. If they would, consider it done but I doubt it. Hope you can make it!

    Wow, just one more week...where did time go? Oh, did someone mention the Top Door prize is a BLUE Gameboy Advance SP? Oops, I just did... :p ;)

    See everyone there!
