Well Mr. RR, I might be there. Not a sure-fire thing yet, but it is on a Saturday.

Wait.

Dream Wizards is hosting a pokemon tourney.

On a Saturday.

Dream Wizards is hosting a tourney on Saturday?

*Looks around all nervously*

AHHHHHH! IT'S A SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE! EVERYBODY! TO THE BUNKER! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Yeah, I'll probably be there. Will bring friend and little brother, who will be 11-14 by then. LIKE ME! Will you be playing, or judging, Brian?

It is on a Saturday! Maybe, just maybe, they won't be running a YuGiOh! tournament at the same time like the last 1, 2, 3, 4 tournaments. Wooper, can I use your Oracles/Rare Candy at the tourney again? .. Thanks, I knew you'd agree.

Wooper, can I use your Oracles/Rare Candy at the tourney again?

Maybe...Maybe David should just keep them and not ship them to me, since you could return them AT THE TOURNAMENT in person, and it's less risky. I will be going MOST LIKELY so you should probably keep 'em until later. I'm not sure if I can convince my mom to take us all up to Rockville, that's two big tournies in one month. She kinda likes to put the hand down HARD on that stuff...maybe if I promise to win another GameCube!

*Chants* DOOR PRIZES DOOR PRIZES DOOR PRIZES DOOR PRIZES *UNCHANT*

GBASP would be nice. Especially when I win it.

See you all there (I hope)

GET ON AIM JON!

*To keep this from being semi-spam, what are the door prizes going to be, Brian? Or did I not read carefully enough?

hmmm, I didn't think I saw anything about Door Prizes :( - There may be some random Absols given away, though! Oh, and I'll be judging (as usual). Benjamin and Bradley will be there ;).

BTW, I just post the Dream Wizards event info here since the TO isn't a 'Gym member - but I wanted to help get the word out! :D So, I don't have alot to do with how things are Organized.

hmmmm.... time to start pushing for 2/3 top 8

Fuji will hate you... O_O

Anyways, I can't come, it's not going to work out, even though DREAM WIZARDS IS HOLDING THE TOURNEY ON SUNDAY! AHHHH - BUNKER! *Hides under computer desk and sucks thumb*

I will try to get my parents to drive me to the SC in Rockville...I must get to Worlds this year...because I'm 15+ next year. SHPanda, Physics Squirrel, Luke Reed, Gymbo, Steph, CFK...too much pressure. I'm better off playing people around my age (and height).

Soooo I won't be there. Fizzle, just keep the Oracles and Candy, get on AIM and we'll further discussion.

OK, anyone else coming? Last chance weekend for the Gym Challenges to earn a trip!

Oh, I may need a rules/OP knowledgeable volunteer(Of course, you get a split of the staff support...:)). If anyone is interested, give me a pm or e-mail.

See everyone there!

I'll be there(might be bringing chris, not sure).

PS, I need 3 oracles and 1 rare candy for my deck, if anyone has some that they aren't using that I can borrow, it would be most appreciated.

Physics Squirrel

Physics Squirrel

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. I liked the blue squirmy thing.

Sensei, do you have any cards for me? Like Rare Candies

Between me, my brother and my sister, I need 2 Rare Candy, 1 Pokemon Reversal, and 1 Gardy RS

TheCrossFormatKid
05/27/2004, 02:18 PM
I have a garde and a reversal you can use

P.S.
Indeed, chris and mike are coming along with me.

Sensei
05/28/2004, 10:09 PM
PS: I`ll have one extra Rare Candy if you need to borrow it.

Hey, we have a surprise judge that e-mailed me and said he would be attending the event! Now, we have full support. Woot!

See everyone in the morning!

`Sensei

p.s. Brian, we`ll need you to take pics. Wendy took our camera with her to Michigan so we need you to be the photographer. ;)

That rules out Quaqsire...XP

Anywho, I will not be making this one, which sucks because this is the tourney I would actually do well in (NC'ers not being there, etc.). But it'd be a shame to win the door prize again, so I'll let you all get it.

I have a science obligation for a school-wide fair thing...I'd skip it but it's worth 10 percent of my exam grade, so Ima hafta go to it, I'm getting a D as it is...

Sorry I can't make the tourney,

(yes, as of today there IS a "Team Severn")

Wanted to be there, couldn't be there. :sadface-age:

Ever since Patriarch and I made our little cult, everybody's been crazy with it. For example:

-Alakatech Cult
-Team Wacko Jacko
-Team Texas
-Team Severn?!? (Who'd wanna be part of that team?) :lol: :thumb:
-Team PA (Pwn All)
-Team Slack

WHY MUST EVERYBODY COPY US?!?!? >B

Hopefully I'll make it to the ECSC. Go me!

I can't believe we only had two players in the 10- division. A lot of people didn't come to this one, definitely noticed missing faces. Well, a lot of other things were scheduled on the 29th. It most be a popular day for events.

Where are the pictures posted?

We were also quite surprised to find no other 10- players...
