    What exactly is Pokemon Rocks America? It sounds like it may be worth coming too if the prizes are good. San Diego is about a 6 hour drive for me, but i can stay for free so yeah....

    Cool. Houston and StLouis are a bit too far for us in Colorado, but that's okay. Maybe they'll do this again and put one in the Rockies somewhere. Congrats to those cities and players living close to them.

    Hah! I said San Diego was likely, being a big convention-city and being location for past a past STS.

    It will be interesting to see exactly what will happen at the 'Rocks America' events.

    Hey... LA is a big convention-city too. Heck, we host E3 every year; you can't get much bigger than that.

    But, oh well... SD is withen driving distance (2 hours). I just have no idea if I will be able to make it. (at least we'll have an EX: Dragon pre-release in LA)

    Well, according to the census bureau:

    St. Louis, MO--IL MSA 2,603,607
    Kansas City, MO--KS MSA 1,776,062

    Los Angeles--Riverside--Orange County, CA CMSA 16,373,645
    San Francisco--Oakland--San Jose, CA CMSA 7,039,362
    San Diego, CA MSA 2,813,833
    Sacramento--Yolo, CA CMSA 1,796,857

    Dallas--Fort Worth, TX CMSA 5,221,801
    Houston--Galveston--Brazoria, TX CMSA 4,669,571
    San Antonio, TX MSA 1,592,383
    Austin--San Marcos, TX MSA 1,249,763

    So they chose the largest metro area in Missouri, the second largest (but not by much) in Texas, and the third largest in California. The real driving force was probably what was availible, though.

    Of course, some locations within cities would be nice, since I can't find anything on the web.

    I'd certainly like to go to the one in St. Louis, but since I don't have a car, it'll take some crafty planning. And since we don't know the exact locations (be it a hotel, convention center, or something else), my planning will have to wait.

    On the other hand, if anyone's travelling I-44 to get there, you'd be passing right through Rolla... :D

    *UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE*

    For those of you that are thinking of attending the "Dragon" pre-release touranment, the Date of the event has been MOVED to SUNDAY, 16, November 2003, to the Best Western Newport Mesa Inn.

    This was done to prevent any conflicts with the Pokemon Rocks America Tour held the day before.
