    It's time for our monthly tournament at Black Lion Comics, and it's finally going to be POP-Sanctioned!!! :thumb: Here are the details:
    • PLACE = Black Lion Comics & Cards
    • ADDRESS = 1125 Victoria Unit #G, Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    • PHONE = 949-645-5959
    • TIME = Saturday afternoon, around 2:00pm until ????
    • FORMAT = Swiss, Modified, Expedition-up with no WOTC promos (except for reprints, of course). No Prof. Elm, no Recycle Energy, etc.
    • COST = Most likely $5 if we can come through with boosters for prizes. Only $1 if we cannot.
    • PRIZES = Boosters, promos, and assorted other goodies
    Easiest way to find the place is to take the 405 Fwy (if needed) to Brookhurst and go South until you reach Hamilton (if you reach the beach then you've gone too far). Turn left (east), cross the Santa Ana River and head up the hill where Hamilton turns into Victoria. The store is at the top of the hill in the mini-mall on the right.

    Here's a MapQuest link to it as well:

    Also, if you are already registered and have a POP-ID number, please make sure to bring it with you. Current professors should already have a POP-ID (i.e. Jesse, Louis, MHZ, etc.) and we want to avoid creating duplicates if at all possible. If you do NOT have a POP-ID don't worry, we'll assign one for you at the event. Local, National, and Worldwide rankings are now up (see for details), so let's start putting some Black Lion folks on the map!!

    If you plan on attending, please either contact me or post here so I can get a rough headcount for attendance and to determine how many prizes to put together.

    Finally, William D. will be filming a video documentary for a school project this weekend, and he has asked us to wear Pokemon-related apparel if possible. T-shirts, hats, pins, etc. It is not mandatory, but it will help make us look good for the camera if we can have some Poke-Gear on. SMILE!! :D

    See ya,

  2. Well, I'm a bit confused on the whole POP id. I'm not sure whether or not I got it.

    The only e-mail I ever got was...

    Your Professorship application is approved!
    Welcome to the ranks of Pokémon Professors! As a professor, you qualify
    for our benefits program rolling out this October.
    We look forward to working with you!

    Your User ID is ________

    Your Password is __________

    That was months ago obviously. So did I miss something, or is one of those my POP id? (I'm leaning more towards me missing something)

    Yes, I'm pretty sure the User ID mentioned above is your POP ID. At least, that's what I'm going to be using for the tournament software. And if it's not, then you just might end up becoming the top-ranked player from Zimbabwe or something (j/k).

    See ya,

    So we come at 2 instead of the usual 12? Or can we still come at 12 and play, then start the tourny at 2?
  8. Actually WPM, we've BEEN coming at 2 for... I think almost the past 2 months.

    And, DA, I didn't mean fresh meat in referance to the game, I meant as in new to our league. But yes, it should be interesting to meet new people.

    Guess since I haven't gone in weeks you guys changed the time.

    DMC, the tournament is at the address listed in the first post.

    Well, the store opens variably between 2:00 and 2:30pm. We always just say 2pm so that people are more often early than late.

    See ya,

    Unfortunately some of our regulars were in Las Vegas for the ComicCon last weekend (11/01), so we only had 6 participants in the tournament :( . We had some EX-Sandstorm boosters we were going to use for prizes, but since it was such a small number everyone agreed to do a booster draft instead. Of course, a great time was had by all.

    It was a bit tricky figuring out the kinks of the new POP Tournament Software, but it was OK once you get the hang of it.

    Thanks everyone,
  15. Don't forget that Chris and Mark nearly decided to hang me for going without loss. :p

    Good times. It was very fun to actually draft with Sandstorm, it's an excellent set for that. We must do it again sometime!

    The next time I'll be doing any booster drafts will be for EX Dragon, unless we do another one with Sandstorm while Dragon is out.

    Well, we might do a "mixed" draft with 2 packs R/S, 2 packs Sandstorm, and 2 packs Dragon (when it comes out). Now THAT would be fun.

    BTW, the results & rankings for this tourney are now up on POP's website. Thanks again to all who played.
