Still needing one more card for my deck... once i get that I'm set. We need a few more cards for my sis's deck, and she'll be ready too.

i know pat, it's tough to believe, but a going away party for my bro-in-law going to iraq seems a little more important than another tourney... :D

The WAR is ready to go....

Memphis is over, and Ultimate Healer and Little Duck Drew along with Chris's Brother won their trips to get out of the mess.

Meganium45 will be out of the playing field (although rumors abound that Scythking may be coming to play!)

This will be a HUGE field of GREAT players...

Cannot wait to see you all there...come on up MS, you know you want to!!!

Side events include (with support CHAW!)

after swiss rounds - Modified and Unlimited constructed tourney

after finals rounds - Draft with Ruby/Sapphire and Sandstorm - $10.00 for 6 packs.

Dragonite-girl, me and the rest of Team Memphis will be defending our home turf this weekend. Those of you coming from out of town who are 10- and 11-15 better bring your A+ game, because we got some great kids who just narrowly missed out on their trips to worlds last weekend who can smell the Florida air already. Don't be surprised if I actually manage to give a challenge to you 15+ folks. I think I may have finally figured out how my deck works ;) .

Its gonna be tons of fun for everyone....Mom and Dad can go shopping at the mall if they are bored.

Come early for trading and practice.

and Vince... Starbucks is just across the street

meganium45
05/10/2004, 01:53 PM
Starbucks is there, but is there a Shoney's (3 meals in one day, WOOT!)

Yeah, and 15+ will be rocking with NEWMAN in the house, along with some other St. Louis players who have decided to "invade"....rumor has in Chatanooga will be sneaking over too (can't those people just drive to Florida??/ LOL)

Can't wait to see Nitia, Poke_dad, Dragonite_girl, Kevin W. (yeah, I had to mention him), DeMarion and the rest of the gang!!!

This is going to be my warm-up party for the South Stadium...trivia question, how many events can Nitia and Vince run at once???? Let's find out!!!!

This will be THE DAY for Pokemon in the near future!!!

So...this mean you -can- wait to see me? Gee, don't I feel loved? Just because I beat you in the semi-finals... ;) Personally, I was hoping the St. Louis players would choose to "invade" some other location... :p Make you a deal, you talk them out of it and if I win I'll come help judge the main tourney in Texas ^_~ j/k Should be a great tourny, and if I win, I'll probably head to Texas and help judge anyways (like heck I'm gonna miss that many Hidden Legends drafts if i can help it). I just wanna be able to help Richard out at the Mandeville Gym Challenge. But if I dun get a trip this time, looks like I'll have to try at Mandeville ^.^; Anyways, I can't wait for this tourney, it should be awesome! *continues to count down the hours*

swanton1717
05/10/2004, 03:04 PM
I have no idea what I'll be playing, but I WILL be playing. I will be amused if all of us Missourians take everything ;P As we have someone in each division playing.

BTW Vine I am making an uberly cool CD to listen to on the way there. Also who's riding up with us? Just Zak or someone else? Its about time Andrew wins something before Zak ;P Tell him Congrats for me. I haven't been on a trip for so long with Zak, it will be fun fun fun ^_^

05/10/2004, 03:09 PM
well rumor has it that Big Skillet(ME) could be coming down to judge. Yeah thats right not to play but to judge. Hope to see you all there.

ColdCoates90
05/10/2004, 05:29 PM
As we have someone in each division playing.Can you give me any idea of what the 11-14 players from St.Louis will be playing in Memphis? Only 5 more days to the tournament!

Professor_Chris
05/10/2004, 05:34 PM
While your at it tell us what the 15+ St. Louis players will be playing ^_~

Prof Clay
05/10/2004, 09:04 PM
I can honestly say that the only 15+ player from Memphis that I know for sure will be playing GardyEX. Hopefully I can learn how its run by Saturday. I am soooo confident in my meager skills, I will tell the world what I am playing.

(Now if I can just figure out a way to keep all the other 15+ players from showing up.........)

Aren't we all ;P

BTW I dont think the 11-14 really want me to share, but there will be at least 1 BAR deck. 15+ I have no idea X\

~Colin

nikePK
05/11/2004, 08:39 AM
I've changed my mind. I'm gonna build a BAR. And by 'BAR,' I mean Breloom/Ariados/Ralts. Its UNSTOPPABLE!

meganium45
05/11/2004, 09:24 AM
Dude, you really need to try to use Raticate instaead of Ralts, much quicker to power up, and hits RAY really hard.

Second, Breloom should be replaced by Blissey. Yet another item to kill Ray, and let's face it, she's a fat big egg.

Third, GO AIPOM - you know the glove tailed monkey - yes - strong against Ray again, that's all any of us are worried about anyway, right???

So, the Anti BAR is BAR - Blissey, Aipom, Raticate....will definitely be an UNDEFEATED DECK!!!

IN THE END THERE CAN BE ONLY 1 (in each age division)

WHO WILL BE THE MEMPHIS HIGHLANDER...we all have our picks and our favorites.

Will TN hold on to its invites, or will the invading players from KY, MO, AK, MS, and IL come to take their fun away???

Will the SCYTHKING come and rear his playing head this weekend??

Will be EVER be done with side events???

Who will win...who can know? ONE THING IS FOR SURE...YOU CAN'T WIN IF YOU DON'T PLAY!!!

Will Zak come down to make it two in the family?? Will Taylor claim her top prize? Will Kevin and Demarion and Chris avenge their final match losses from Nashville, or will fate frown upon them once again???

How many states will show up?? Over/under is 6 (TN, KY, MO, IL, MS, AK)

Who will be the master for a day, who Pokemon flies away?

Will EVERYONE be playing Blaziken EX (um, no)?

Will ANYONE be playing Blaziken EX (um, yes)

Will ANYONE be playing Aipom (um, no)

Will ANYONE be playing Wobbuffet (um, uh, goodness I hope so)

Which will be bigger, Dragonite or Pikachu? (Pikachu)

Will there be an ELITE door prize for an undefeated, untied, swiss winner? (um, probably)

Will it be as big as the prize for winning a division? (Um, no)

If we have 16 in each age division, will they only have to play each other? Um, yeah.

Will we be using the TMS software? We will see

Will Meganium45 be there, making it a GREAT FUN EVENT!!! I hope so! (yes I will)

See you ALL THERE - or be some form of 2-D Cube!! <Scotty, we will see you in St. Louis, some things are STILL more important that Pokemon>

05/12/2004, 05:13 PM
Another question is, will i be there to judge. It all depends on if i can get a ride or not. Right now it looks as if i won't be getting one but you never know. I might just be able to get one. We will just have to wait and see.
