    Okay, since the TO doesn't hang out here, here is the info from (where you can find more info - tel #, maps, directions, etc.):

    Nintendo's Pokemon State Championship

    Sunday, May 2, 2004
    Location: Dream Wizards, Rockville, MD

    Registration - (For all Age Groups): 10:30 to 11AM, Play begins at 11AM.

    Players who are 10 or younger must be accompanied by an adult.
    Open to all players, regardless of which state they live in!!!

    Entry Fee: $10, includes a new State Championship Promo card!

    Format: Modified Constructed. You will need to bring a deck that is constructed ahead of time. The deck should include 60 cards that are Legal in the modified format. When constructing your deck you may use cards from: Expedition, Aquapolis, Skyridge, Ruby & Sapphire, Sandstorm, Dragon, and Team Magma vs. Team Aqua. In addition, all Nintendo-issued promo cards are legal (001 & up).

    Prizes: Prizes are awarded to the top 8 players in all of the following age categories: 10 or younger, 11-14, 15 and up. 1st Place receives an incredible set of prizes - the State Champion Award, one Display Box of Pokemon-e TCG: EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua, a Two-round bye at the National Championships (a bye means you don't play the round and are awarded a win in those rounds), and a Stage One VIP Package containing cool Pokemon Merchandise (this package will be awarded when the winner registers at the National Championship event at the Origins Game Convention). 2nd Place receives 18 Booster Packs of Pokemon-e TCG: EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua. 3rd and 4th Place receive 9 Booster Packs of Pokemon-e TCG: EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua. 5th through 8th Place receive 4 Booster Packs of Pokemon-e TCG: EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua.

    I expect Sensei` will again HJ - I am on the fence whether to judge or play (but I'll still have the laptop with working printer there for ya' Mike!) - it would be really cool to pick up a VIP package at Nationals (definitely going to Nationals! :D).

    Hey everyone,Laurel will not be in until late due to a big Magic Event in Baltimore so she handed the reins over to me. We will be opening the doors approx 10:15 so we can get the event started as soon as possible!
