I know as of now tom shea of tj's collectibles of milford,mass has gotten the regional trophies which means TJ's has a regional but im still confirming the date for it.

That means the new england regionals will be confirmed for TJ's collectibles in milford,mass. Pokemebob will have info on it as soon as the date is finalized
So far the northeast regionals have no word but watch it to maybe be in NYC at rockefeller plaza

I knew the ECSTS to be at the meadowlands expo ceneter in secaucus,nj. Thats why when i heard meadowlands. I flipped thinking they actually might bring it there but your right they might also have it at the meadowlands arena but i cant see a toruney like regioanls being held at a huge arena like the meadowlands.

Oh I hope in the Meadowlands ....Then it will about Two hours aways where I live and it be so cool
to go to two big regionals..in one year and plus I don't have to worry about hotel prices this year
just gas prices lol...

Well the Mind-A one is in a convention center in Philly and that place is a big
place ..maybe they think we might have a big turn out..like last year there was a big turn out in
Mayland SC about 200 poeple .don't remenber but it was crownd in the little hall. I was supprize to
see that many poeple there. and can fit in the hall.
so maybe it a good place after all...They don't how big it's going to be..I mean if they have a small
place that only can hold 200 people and there about 500 people come. then their suck and plus
they need room to seperate the age groups they need room for that too..I think having it in a big place
is better then having in a Small place..I think it a smart think ..you'll never know how big the turn out
can be.>.>;

Counting the number of states in attendance is a rather unfair comparison. If we drew a circle with a center at the NW Regional in Portland OR, we would need a radius of approximately 1500 miles to capture 15 states. To get 15 states enclosed in a circle around Pennsylvania, you need a radius of only 200 miles or so.

Well, there will be at least one IL person in Philly, can't really speak for anyone else in the midwest... M45's friends ain't the only ones making an invasion... I expect a good turnout at Philly on the 4th.

meganium45
06/02/2005, 08:05 AM
Not meaning to make an unfair comparison....just amazed that we got 1/3 of the states in the US (almost) in attendance at a Regional!!!

Hey, there is no doubt as to which regional drew the most people, but, you have to admit...15 states is kind of staggering!

Great job to all!
