    Newbies coming with medals !


    My son and I will be moving to the arlington area on march 5th. We will not know the area very well, but I think that we WILL make this tourney. We are from the chicagoland area and have played the game for some time. We will be looking to make some long lasting connections in this area for pokemon. It is a big part of our lives.

    I have read the tourney reports from the area. Everyone seemed to be shocked when they saw a red face paint deck. Well, unfortunatly thats all we play. I dont like to run decks that have been seen before. ESPECIALLY archetypes. I really enjoy building a new deck and watch it do well in a tourney.

    anyhow, count us 2 in!

    Well, this certainly makes up for missing the Fort Worth CC...Mis padres have less of a problem with me going down to Dallas, so that's a plus for me!

    Is this tourney still on the agenda? There doesnt seem to be nearly as much interest in this tourney as there was in the, Houston, Sugarland, or Plano tourneys. I am hoping for a strong turnout. I NEED to keep this pokeball rolling until Origins.

    Could I pre-register for this one?

    I will post any other questions I may have here in the future.

    peace out,

    Dallas...You're Next...And the Last.....

    ~~Dallas...Texas... & Out of State... Pokemon Players~~

    This is the last "City Championship" to be held in the State of Texas!!! :mad: If you have not won one of these awesome "Medallions" from a City Championship and "VIP Package" to the "Texas State Championships", this is it for the State of Texas. :nonono:

    I have been to some extremely exciting "City Championships". :eek: But, I know that this one will be a WAR!!! :thumb: Some of the BEST PLAYERS have since moved up to older age groups. The "Dallas City Championships" will be a whole different game this time. Some of those almost impossible unbeatable players are no longer in you age group!!! :D

    Please read all of the posts on this "thread". The location has changed to the "Doubletree Club Dallas-Park Central" Hotel. And the times have changed also.

    We are looking for a great attendence for this event in Dallas on March 20, 2004. Let's break all of the other attendences of the "City Championships". :clap:

    Take care and get those decks ready. You'll need too.

    ~~Pokemon Players--Near & Far~~

    I will be leaving for the Houston's "EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua" Pre-release Tournament in the morning, March 5th. I will not return until March 12th. I will be on "Spring Break' with my family. While I am gone, fellow professor, "sneaselsfunhouse" will be answering any questions that you might have about the "Dallas City Championships". When I return, I will answer anything that he cannot answer for you.

    You guys don't give "sneaselsfunhouse" too hard of a time. Take care and I will see you on March 20th for the "Dallas City Championships". :D

    Roll Call...

    ~~Roll Call for the "Dallas City Championships"~~

    I need you guys to start replying on this thread if you know that you are definitely going to be at the "Dallas City Championships". That way I can start entering the players into the "Laptop" as being "Pre-registered. Send me your name and POP ID#s by "Private Message" or email.

    Thank you.

    ...What do we do if we have no idea what our POP ID is? I've never even bothered to ask Sam X_X

    Master Professor Birch Active Member

    :) ~Patriarch~ :)

    Call the store that you received your "POP ID#" from and ask for your "POP ID#" and "Password". If you cannot get it from them, I can give a new "POP ID#" and "Password" on Saturday. You will not be the first one that I have given a new "POP ID#". They should have given you the POP ID# and PASSWORD when they registered you for it.

    If you have played in any of my "Premier Tournaments", just reply that you are coming on Saturday to the "Dallas City Championships" on this thread. I already have your "POP ID#" on record. Oh yes, NEVER give out your "Password" to anyone. That is yours to use to edit your personal information and to check your ratings.

    Thanks for replying, Patriarch.
