    GOOD News. Plus, I'll be able to take some of my players to neighboring states if they don't win in CO.

    Too bad only half the States are currently represented.

    That's not entirely true... all I will say is to keep an eye on that list, it is subject to change ;)

    Also if your in the sea coast area, you're welcome to attend my league... we have a tournament (that will be sanctioned) comming up in mid-may at the Games Weekend convention...

    hmm... Is it just me or is the Milford, MA event listed as 1900... dang, guess I'm already late for my event! :p

    You are more then welcome to come down to Utah and play. :)

    As for half the States are currently represented, I know more states are being worked on, but these are the ones that PUI has okayed as of right now. For instance I am working on one in another State right now, and hope to have it locked down by next week.

    I knew TJs was going to have the event...my guess is that means they haven't decided when. But I guess thats nice that they posted it anyhow? *shrugs* Who knows...

    Hmmm, its interesting that they wont even pay the entrance fee needed to enter Origins. It still doesnt make sense to me why nationals is at a pay-to-enter convention where they dont have complete control over the venue. Oh well, another subject, another thread, another time.

    I also know that Wisocnisn's is tentativelyschedueled for April 24th in Manitowoc, WI. This isn't official though... this really is only what we've heard from the store owner so far.

    Hooray! States will officially go to a top 8. Wish they would provide some part of the trip to Nationals but oh well.

    Gym Leader Blaine...

    I inquired along time ago to PUI about ID...But at present I don't have the resources to go to ID..

    I will say that I played at a SBZ in 2002 in May in Boise.. The shop is listed on the league and had good attendance..

    I may look to Eastern Wa in the near future...

    Yea, it would be nice if they could pay for at least part of the cost to Origins if you won... It would be even nicer if they also payed for a part of a trip down to Origins!
