Yes I got the e-mail this last Friday evening & it had the prize support info in it.

I was very surprised that there weren't other posts on here about City Championships yet.

Ok, step one... try to get off work (easy enough I would think)

Step 2, convincing wife to let me take off work and spend V-day playing in OK at a Pokemon Tourney..... ummmmmmm

Will still try to make it there, assuming Plano or other near by CC wont be held same day.

Will get back to you and call to confirm reservation as soon as these details are nailed down...... (sad part is wife is the toughest of these, and not knowing when/if closer one will be of course)

I can tell you also that Ft. Worth's is the 15th & Plano's is the 22nd. if thats of any help. Just let me know!

01/10/2004, 09:58 AM
Old man, where are you finding the information?? for Fort Worth Plano area??

01/10/2004, 03:39 PM
Ok, suprisingly step 2 is solved, step 3 is solved... Now only my manager can stand in my way. (shouldnt be a prob)

Luckily my anniversary is on the 19th, so if I am not away for both, my wife says its ok....

And do you know where Fort Worth one is? I assume Y2Komics, any clue?

Also, has an exact entry fee been determined?

I.m sure by now you've seen the sticky in this section. There's all the info there that I would have.

After talking to the owner, the entry fee for this event is $7. There will be lots & lots of give-aways. In fact, the more people who sign up, the more & bigger giveaways there will be.

As stated above the entry fee is $7. If you pay before January 31st entry fee is $6. Also if you pre-register no later than February 13th, you'll get a 5 card promo pack.

There will also be lots of door prize drawings for various items as well as gift cards. The more people that enter, the more prizes.

Watch for more updates the closer we get!

-old man-

Will there be separate tournaments for each age group or just one BIG tournament? Will you cut to the Top-8 to determine a champion? Can I call "4th Street" and pay by phone with a credit card? I have major questions here. I need HELP!!!

I will run separate tournaments as long as PUSA says it okay. It's a better way to actually determine the top in EACH age group.
Same thing with the top 8. Unless given directions otherwise I'll cut to 8. But a question here for thought. Has anyone noticed you don't have to do a top 2,4,8 16 etc.... You can cut to an odd # of players using the Tournament Manager software.
I'm sure you can call 4th Street & pay by credit card if you want. They are capable of doing this.

If there is enough interest, then after the main tournament there will be others as well.

Will you be giving out New Promo Cards at the City Championships??? I heard that you could get a New Limited Promo Card by just playing in the tournament.

I haven't heard official word from them yet about this, only here on the boards, BUT if it comes with other items as part of the support you can bet it will be given out!

I was wondering if Ya'll still have room left in the "Moore City Championship"?? I was thinking about driving up from Texas (Hook 'em Horns). :cool: Will ya'll be offended if I wear my "UT" stuff?? :D


old man

Not in the least would we be offended! Come any way you want. Just remember there are kids here & we don't need to see nothing like a Janet Jackson!:)
There is still room. We have a pretty good sized playing area already that holds 50+ as is & it can be expanded easily if needed. So bring yourself & as many others as you can!

Count me in "old man"!!! I will be all fired up and ready to go. I can't hardly nearly wait. I just might come up on Monday and camp out on your door step. OOOOOOOH YEAH, the "City Championships" are on!!!!


old man

Don't you think Monday is a little long to wait? I mean just where would you stay? :)

We're hoping this to be the biggest turnout yet for the area. We're getting ready for the State Championshipship & all the others, so bring on the competition!!

old man

I have confirmed that the prize support has made it!

There will be numerous drawings for all kinds of things as well.

There will also be some packs given away for those not in the top 4.

So everyone will know now, we will play a number of swiss rounds then cut to the top 8 or 16. Both of these will be determined by the turnout.

old man
02/14/2004, 12:37 AM
Well this is it! This is the day!
All the promo packs are ready to be given out. I think it's safe to say that everyone will get at least a couple of things besides the normal prizes!

Come on out & have some fun.

Be there before 1:00 p,m.

I regret to inform you that this "older " man will not make an appearance in Moore today. When I got up this morning to drive that way, there is 3-4 inches of snow in my yard. Bad Weather like this and my driving are a even worse combination. Hope to see ya'll soon.

Is Moore still holding their event today?? My family is on their way now and I want to turn them around if they don't need to be in the sticky weather.

Yes the event was held. Sorry I couldn't get back to you before now. I left just about the time you posted the above.

There were 36 players for the event. A pretty good turnout for Okla. 5 of the 36 drove up from Texas & I want to give them a special thanks for braving the weather they had to go through. Luckily we didn't have any bad weather around here. Those 5 would be the Lynch family & Spectreon & Poinko from the boards here.

Now a small report -
-10 age group had 3 players in it. Won by Taylor Vanderford playing an Ampharos deck. 2nd place went to Dale Lynch.

11-14 age group had 17 players. Won by Chris Maple playing an Ampharos deck. 2nd place to Heather Lynch playing a Gardevoir deck.

15+ had 16 players. Won by Adam Blake playing a Blaziken deck. 2nd place to Dana Lynch playing a Blaziken deck.

Notice the 3 age groups all had a member of the Lynch family at 2nd place!

I want to thank everyone who attended and hope you all enjoyed yourself!
