    September 7th 2003 Pokemon Tournament in Sturgis Michigan. The event will be held in the vacant building next to KB Toy Works in Sturgis. The address for the Tournament location is 895 S. Centerville Rd. Sturgis, MI 49091 Both locations are located in the Sturgis Plaza and there is plenty of parking. The cost is $10

    Registration begins at 11am Michigan/Ohio time (10am Indiana/Illinois Time)
    Play begins at Noon Michigan/Ohio time (11am Indiana/Illinois Time)

    Sturgis is on the map below in white with blue border.




    The format will be age modified Swiss. We will use the current modified format that Wizards of the Coast uses due to the fact Nintendo has no ruling for there cards. The only Nintendo cards that are allowed to be used are the ones that have been reprinted from past Wizards sets. We will not be using Nintendos new rules on flipping ect. like originally posted. We will go with completely Wizards rules to make it easier on the judges.


    1st Place

    1 box Pokemon EX Ruby/Sapphire
    8 each Winner Promos (Dec-June)
    320 Foil Cards (40 each of Elm, Recycle & 6 foil energies)
    Winner Jumbo Cards
    Pikachu World Collection Binder
    30 Rainbow Energy
    16ea Best Promos 1,2,4-7

    2nd Place

    16 boosters Pokemon EX Ruby/Sapphire
    6 each Winner Promos (Dec-June)

    9-16th Place

    40 Foil Cards (5 each of Elm, Recycle & 6 foil energies)
    2 Rainbow Energy
    2ea Best Promos 1,2,4-7

    This list is subject to change due to the fact I haven't finished going through the stuff I have. Currently considering a request by PsycoDad on my post on the old board of spliting the age divisions which would cause me to have to split the prizes.

    I will also be running the Pokemon Sandstorm Pre-Release Saturday September 6th, 2003 at the same location.

    There are many hotels and places to eat in the area. I will post some of those and add them to this topic when I get the list complete. If there is any other information you would like or any questions/suggestions let me know. So, whos all coming?

    Hotel Info
    If you plan on getting a hotel you may want to book early. Notre Dame has there first home game that weekend and hotels are going fast. That is also why the rooms are so expensive. We are only about 30 miles from Notre Dame.

    Holiday Inn Express
    45 West 750 North
    Howe, IN 46746
    $109-169 a night

    Hampton Inn
    71451 South M-66
    Sturgis, MI 49091
    $109-119 a night

    Super 8
    7333 N. State Rt 9
    Howe, IN 46746
    $63-70 a night

    Knights Inn
    70045 S. Centerville Road
    Sturgis, MI 49091
    $49-59 a night

    Travel Inn
    50 W 815 N
    Howe, In 46746
    (260) 562-3481
    $58 a night

    All these hotels are right off the 80/90 Indiana Toll Road except for the Knights Inn which is located right down the road closer to the tournament location. Even thought the hotels addresses don't show it, they are all actually on the same road as the tournament location. The Knights Inn is about 1/2 mile from it, the rest are about 2 miles away. I will try to get the other hotels info up once I get prices and phone numbers.

  6. farbsman

    farbsman New Member

    comfort and sleep Inn are Choice hotels and the closest one owned by the same company is in Coldwater Michigan which is about 25 miles east of Sturgis. The info for that hotel is below:

    Econo Lodge
    180 W. Chicago Rd.
    Coldwater, MI 49036

    There are a few other smaller hotels in Sturgis, I plan to stop in at them in the next day or so to get cost per night and phone numbers. The hotels I listed above are the ones I could find information on the internet for.

    Im still fairly intersted in attending but really i think the use of the new Nintendo based rules is a bad idea. If we cant use their cards why use the new rules it just seems illogical to me. Maybe if thats changed i would think of attending more i really feel like the using the new rules is uneeded.
    My two cents

    I was figuring that using the new rules might speed up the tournament a little since we are playing on a school night. However, I am always up for suggestions. Now that you mention it I think we will go with the old Wizards way the whole way through. This will make it easier on the players and the judges. I Will edit the above post on the rules in a minute. Thanks for the suggestion.

    There will also be prizes for each age division. Ages 10 and under, 11-14, and 15 and up. They won't be as good as the main prizes, but there will be some packs, Eon tickets, and reverse holo Kyrogre EX and Groudon EX cards.

    So who is all coming?

    Well it stinks but i dont think i will be able to attend. I figured it out today and Sturgis is almost 4 1/2 hours from Flint or in other words way to far for pokemon. So the only way i can attend is if i get a ride, sorry:( and good luck to those that go.
