Too bad it's in North Carolina. I'm definitely not driving all the way down there just for a Pokemon tournament. Maybe there will be a Regional Championship in Maryland so I won't have to drive more than an hour to get there.

Ah well. Have fun without me.

OMG.....this was like the BIGGEST surprise I ever saw when I was looking at my email and I saw this one and I go to it and I read and I see where it is......my jaw dropped within a second..........I was like 0_0 omg the Eastern Regional is in MY backyard. So of course I WILL be there as I could not miss something this huge when it's in my area. This has made my day as I am extremly overjoyed about seeing this. Wow, still can't get over the shock. I need to go lie down.

Woop`s correct, the East Coast Stadium Challenge was in Md. (OK, not that far from the border though...).

Joe, you are a cool guy yourself. Up for a "Second Annual Late Night" tournament the night before like last year? If it`s doable, I`ll definately be running it! Last years was a blast! Think we should do it peeps? I`ll do prizes and such.

I know I would love to play in another "late night" tourney if I would be allowed to as umm since I live here there'd be no reason for me to stay at the hotel for the night. That weekend in general was so fun for me. *bounces up and down* Ahh I can't wait. Now to finally try to pick my deck.

Just updated the info on the DS game (changed from GBA game) and GameCube game. Stay tuned for more updates!!!

Feraligatr
03/30/2005, 10:43 AM
Just made a change to the hotel room info. There are two different confirmation numbers based on how many beds you want. Also very important to make your reservation by 4/25/05 as this block and confirmation numbers are only good until then. If the hotel still has rooms available after that you can call, say your with the Pokemon event, and still get the discount of $67. Feel free to email me with any questions!!!

Lawman
03/30/2005, 09:15 PM
Will have to get those reservations in soon then, since Alex & I will be there! Since I missed the ECSC late night tourney pre tourney (in room snoozing LOL), I would like a chance to play this year. (assuming we get in town soon enough) Too bad you cant make it down Joe, I enjoyed our games in the lobby the night before the tourney (but before the impromptu late nighter).

Don't forget there will be a tournament Friday night and if it is modified (makes note to check with Sensei) then another chance to test out those decks for Regionals...or even test out those decks you have no intention of playing the next day. :eek:

Wow, this is in a hotel. I told my mom about the tournament the day before, and she said she would find a way to help me book the hotel for me and some friends. I hope it works out and I am able to be there the day before. Got into the 25th to book. Whew. I'd like to spend two nights, so that would be something like $134 plus tax. I feel my mom would go out of her way to get me there.

Anyways, I'll be there even if I can't book the hotel and spend two nights. But I rather spend the two nights and be able to actually take pictures of all my friends, in which I've made so many, since I have started playing.

Wow, this is a big tournament. People from TN, GA, NC, SC, MI, any from VA?

Yep, it`ll be modified. Time is TBA . Don`t want it TOO late but not too early either so people can show. What time, for those showing up Friday, are you getting in everyone?

Considering it is a 4 hour drive (at least), then gotta find the hotel, plus work, errrrr I'm guessing 9 ish. If I get out early, have my stuff ready, I may be there a bit earler than that, but I gotta eat sometime on the road too prolly. Lets just say I should be in by 9 PM (hopes).

Yay, I booked the hotel just 5 minutes ago. I'm still working out what time we will head down to there. I am out of school by then, but Matthew isn't. So, he could either miss a day of school, which wouldn't be that bad, but could be, or we pick him up at 3PM and head down. That sounds like the best idea. Big ups to all the people coming, I'm going to take a picture with all my friends so watch out.

Shoot...the South isn't the Bible Belt..its the Poke-Belt (like the one Machoke and Machamp wear :biggrin: ) I think east TN will end up with possibly 2 10-s, 2 11-14s and 1 15 + and of course, me, a judge for this great event!

Chaw, piglets!

You gotta love this!

What a bonus for the people attending both events, to have the BEST EVENT, right in Memphis 2 weeks after this event!!!

True, the Eastern Regional will be the #2 Regional in the country, but I understand that everyone cannot travel to Memphis, so some people will just have to trust this one!

In all seriousness, Sensei, Gatr, PM me so we can compare some notes. I have some ideas to make these events even better than what we did last year, and we did hold ELITE events!!! Would like to hear what you guys are doing too, so we can make these thing UTTERLY ELITE for all attending players!!

Talk to you guys soon!!!

Very good question...Should I make everyone wait till the day of the event...Probably not since I would end up being the person tied to the roof of the convention center... :eek:

Haven't decided for sure but it will either be a Nintendo DS/Naki Deluxe Kit/Super Mario 64 game or Nintendo DS and 3 games. Stay tuned for future update!!!

Feraliger i wouldent strap myself to the roof to see the bundle pack but i know late night i might attempt a sneak into the hall to see it :thumb: Thats if security dosent catch me and wreck me LOL

This East Coast Regional will rock so hard repesenting so many states and now with all the raffle prizes and side contest wow best regional i see as of yet :biggrin:

Thought I would post to alleviate anyone's fears about the location/size of the venue. This one is different from last years ECSC because it has a convention center right next to the Holiday Inn rooms but both are owned by Holiday Inn. The convention center is actually called Guilford County Convention Center on the front of the building. Plenty of room for all the exciting events we will be doing Friday night and all day Saturday!!! :clap:

Actually there is a Motel 6 (See link below) that is within 5 miles of the location. It's not bad and I think there are some other GA players staying there. Looks like the standard rate is $39.99 for 1 or 2 beds. Let me know if you need directions from there to convention center.
