You're right Scizor. They should all be on the SAME day. LOL

I'm glad that we have 3 in Florida, but it still confounds me how NC can have just 1. I guess they think that putting one in SC makes up for it somehow.

Well, considering that gym challenges can only be held over 3 wkends, there will be some overlapping. Don't complain, you will have the choice of 4 places to go. That is great!! Where we are, it is 1, unless you want to travel more than 4 hours. The only other location in my state is 7 1/2 hrs away! Plus, you have Worlds in your backyard in San Diego. How many "free" trips are needed in Cali??? :biggrin:

*Goes back to his TN rant* You have your event, Memphis has there's. Now the question is this...which one do I go to? Both are 4 hours away, so not much help there. Maybe both if they aren't on the same day. Guess we will just wait and see.

Scizor
05/09/2005, 10:07 PM
It isn't the trip, it is obviously the invite. California has more players than anywhere else, we deserve what we get. I just wanted to be able to go to more GCs, i'm sorry that i don't have 3 events within 7 hours of me like most of the rest of the country.

Completely different areas. Pastimes is essentially in Chicago, and Collinsville is closer to MO and KY than anywhere else. I have no problems with that scheduling, so long as Manitowoc, Whitewater, and Brookfield (I HOPE) are all on different days.

Unfortunily due to NYC can only have it on sundays they hsve to take a day and they took this one. Milford had thiers planned before NYC but the city had not much of a choice in dates. It sucks because i wanted to go to both but understand and will be at milford that day.

;_; *sobbage*

Yeah, I seriously think they should have spread Gyms out over three weekends, and then we could have avoided most of this stuff. Thankfully the MD and VA ones are on different days, but unthankfully, the VA and NC ones are on the same days. While it does increase my chance to win the whole tournament by 0.00000001%, I think that this would have been avoidable if Nintendo had spread Gyms out a bit more than just four days.
