    Its the normal registration time that the past Regionals have had. Since the size of the event, better to start earlier then later.

    There is nothing offically planned for Friday night. The room will be set up and the hotel is usally fine if players want to play in the area ahead of time as long as they don't make a mess.

    Gym Leader Blaine <a href="http://pokegym.net/forums/member.php?u=15

    Mmm, that is interesting on the lower rate. When I worked out the $69 room rate last year, their standard rate at the time was $76 a night. Thanks for the information.
