In case nothing is going to be organized overhere, how far is that location from one of London's airfields?
(2 flights to Heathrow in the morning)
And is anyone able to pick us up/bring us back in case we decide to fly over to play.
Just in case.
01/11/2004, 02:43 PM
The venue is very close to Gatwick Airport but Freddy and a few others are close to Heathrow
Maybe we can arrange something ... ;)

2 more confirmed for you Mr NoPoke sire :
Liz and Tommy Roberts
just wouldn't be a tourney without you guys :)
02/29/2004, 08:10 AM
i'll be there and so will my brother. If you come across daniel baker, fear me. If you play luke baker, dont fear, you'll win. Will the extra packs you get from the side event be usable in the main event?
02/29/2004, 08:16 AM
the side events are seperate from the main tourney and you will not be able to use those cards in the main event.
You will be asked to log the contents of your packs and make a note of your 40 card deck too.
There will be booster pack prizes in the side and the main events and also Promo's too.
02/29/2004, 08:46 AM
I Can't Wait! :D :D :D
I hope i get to make a water deck! :D

03/05/2004, 01:24 AM
Not Mercenary at all! Listen guys and gals if you want the cards ahead of the rest, if you want to get them cheaper than normal then do as NoPoke advises ... Bring Loadsa Money, play the side events for more boosters, more chances to win and more promos.
And don't forget to Bring Loadsa Money ;)
