Do you mean Greensboro, NC ? If so, this is covering both the Greensboro & High Point areas as they are cities next to each other.

Spike
06/09/2005, 11:16 AM
maybe it was NC, i cant remember exactly where i'm talking about. It was the state championships that was at The Fine Art Of Baseball. *has bad memory*

Prime
06/09/2005, 11:46 AM
Fine Art of Baseball is Columbia, SC. Greensboro was Regionals.

Spike
06/09/2005, 11:59 AM
ahhh, thats right.

Feraligatr
06/09/2005, 12:52 PM
If you are referring to South Carolina States that was at the Fine Art of Baseball in Columbia, SC. Due to circumstances all Premier Events have been moved from there to Planet Comics in Anderson, SC (which is actually closer to you Spike). Hence the Gym Challenged scheduled for Sunday, June 26 (which was scheduled around GA's Gym Challenge on Sat, June 25 to give players a second chance that weekend).

Spike
06/09/2005, 12:55 PM
ya, i was wondering why i didnt see anything else for SC. I just hope 2 chances is enough for me lol.

I actually went undefeated all day running Slaking/Salamence ex. However, not only did I win a trip to Worlds, but I have a nasty sore throat and can barely talk, a secondary prize from yesterday.

Here is the article from Saturday's event...

Jim Ferrell
06/13/2005, 07:05 AM
Well, I had intended to type up a Gym Report, however, just as I was finishing, my computer froze. So I wasted about an hour of typing. Since the Gym Challenge I have been pretty sick, I picked up some sort of bug Saturday during the tournament. So, I'll do a brief post here summarizing my day:

I couldn't decide what to play. I debated between Blaziken and Slaking. I eventually chose Slaking. First round I played Matt Riddle with Ludicargo. Second round was Muk Man with Parasect/Exeggutor. Third round was Josh R with Ludicargo. Fourth round was Patrick W. with Blaziken. Fifth round was Greg Dollar with a Rogue Rayquaza ex (DX)/Electrode ex deck. After the five rounds, I win 5-0, going in first seed in the Top 8 Cut. My T8 Game was against Bob Weinman using Gyarados/Camerupt and I won out 2-0. T4 was against Patrick W again with Blaziken, and I won out 2-0. Finals was against my girlfriend, Stephanie using Blaziken. I won the first game, and she let me have the win the second game. The event was very well run, and I had a lot of fun. I was also interviewed for the High Point local paper during the day. I want to thank Jeff for the event, thank the Barlocks for letting me go with them, and especially thank Stephanie for being such a sport. Love you! :D My only slops the entire day was me getting sick.

C'ya all at Worlds!

EDIT: Just as I posted, Jeff linked the paper. The reporter who wrote that actually watched my second game where I almost lost.

Hey everyone, my brother and I had a great time at this Gym Challenge .. as it was my first Gym Challenge ever and only the second big Pokemon event I've ever attended (the first being the Greensboro Regionals). For Kevin (my brother), it was his third event. I was especially happy to lock in the top eight after running such a rogue deck (Gardevoir, Magby/Magmar, Magneton), and it was great meeting so many new people.

Thanks to all for being great sports and providing such a great community. Congrats to everyone who did well and my hopes are that everyone had a good time.

My brother and I and Brian will be heading up to Charlotte this coming weekend for some more fun, so we hope to see you there. Take care until then. : )

Wow, the event was so fun. And, I still can't believe I won the DS. But enough about me.

There were a lot of good players at the tournament. Other than one of my games, all of my losses were really great games against friends, which are always the best games. Congrats to everyone, regardless of rank.

It was very awesome to see the Barlock family again, Jake B., Jim F., Brian L., Erik and his brother Kevin, the Reynolds family, Jacy S., Patrick W., the Dollar family, and Colby. I always feel like I won first place when I get to see all my friends. They are all class acts.

Dakin Myles: I know who you remind me of...Abraham Lincoln. (http://www.whitehouse.gov/history/presidents/al16.html)

And I need to buy a sombrero so I can wear it when I play Ludicargo again. La Cukaracha! La Cukaracha! Something something something some. La Cukaracha! La Cukaracha! I don't know the word to this song. Hah!

My brother was reading over my shoulder and suggested that I wear a tophat from now on. : p

I laughed alot alot. : D

I'm happy you got the DS Matt, have you played Pokemon Dash yet? I'm hoping it's as fun and cute as it looks.

Thanks Feraligatr for the compliment! And thanks for all of your help.
