I am darn well going to be there. Not even if Kyogre flooded the world, and Groudon destroyed half of it with an earthquake, will anything stop me from being at this prerelease! You can darn well expect the Dark Legendary Master, Dark Lord Anubis (another of my many nick names), Professor Redwood (the number of nick names I have has got to be ridiculous huh?), but most commonly known as Seth, to be at this prerelease. I will be there. COUNT ME IN TERRY!!!

((PS: I probably sounded to darn enthusiastic there huh?))

Yep you'll see me. I just hope Kyogre and Groudon don't decide to destroy the world that day. Wait till the day after. I'm free that day. But no, not 28th. I need to play in this whole day pokemon event. I think I'm free from the 29th to 15th though, so they can go ahead and destroy whatever they want then :D. Sorry Terry, I'm just kinda trying to joke around a bit. But if it rains that day, I guess I'll know who to blame, huh? (Kyogre you moron you better keep the water where it all belongs or so help me god. No so help me Mewtwo :D. Anyone up for fryed whale or whatever the heck that thing is?) lmmfao........... Okay I better go now. I need to put the Kyogres in the freezer. Maybe that will teach them. And prevent a world wide disaster from happening on the 28th.

I'll be there too and with a friend. The pre-realease is so far that it would take too much time/gas for him to go back to his house. So I just taught him Pokemon yesterday and he'll probably enter to kill time. This sounds like it's going to be fun.

I have recieved the Treecko promo cards that were supposed to be handed out at the tournament on the 25th today, a tad late. I will hand them out to the winners and the random prize winner tomorrow. SOrry for the delay.

Uh oh, there was one Japanese player looking for English FR/LG and he was like really focused on getting the whole set so I told him there were pre-releases this week too, and Seattle is closest to Japan. :eek: We gotta prevent the sweep this time.
I will try to make it if I'm not too tired, just got back today. I was counting on winning Worlds and getting this pre-release for free. Oh well, better start training to get next year's August pre-release for free. :cool:
