    If you are a TO, and wish to upgrade, then listen up! POP has opened the door again for new applicants. You must 18 and a currently enlisted TO to participate. Note you must have a fixed venue planned and a professor to help you out. You must also be more than an hour away from the nearest currently enlisted PTO. Visit http://op.pokemon-tcg.com for more details...

    What... the venue has to be holding an official Pokémon League! That sucks. Our League location is way to small for premier events, and I want to use the location we used for our CC.

    That bites! :mad:

    YOu can't apply if you are not running an OFFICIAL league, so again no acces for us.

    We are TO we did the Dragon pre-release but still not accepted official for Anything.

    Shall I mail again or leave it up to all those volunteers in this country?

    Another rules change? I thought there was no stipulation to use professors?

    Now why would PUI make it a stipulation that PTOs require professors and Distributors do not? Strange..

    Anyhow that may explain why there are no international PTOs?

    Oh and Meganium 45 lets see that list again:

    Weekends filled with Pokemon related mayhem - Check

    Never gonna run any more tourneys for free - Check

    Running Pre-releases - Check

    Want to feel Importent - well actually never bothers me hence no L33tist sig but I can change :)

    Hey does that make me a wannabe PTO or what?

    Now where do I sign.....

    Note you must have a fixed venue planned and a professor to help you out. You must also be more than an hour away from the nearest currently enlisted PTO.

    Myst,it doesn`t say that you need a professor to help out nor does it say you must be more than an hour away from a PTO.It asks for a professor in your area and it says that Premier Event locations must be at least an hour away.Not all Premier Event locations are the home areas of PTO`s. :)

    All,
    Please note that other than being a Tournament Organzier, the rest of the questions are in place to help us make decisions in areas where we get multiple applicants.

    If one person is a TO, but doesn't have a league, or professors they work with, and another person in that same area is a TO, league leader, and has professors they regularly work with, we'll give the nod to the person who meets the most criteria.

    This does NOT mean that someone with TO experience, and no competition in their area will definitley be approved, but that person should still apply.

    Thanks,
    Prof. Dav

    Dave,

    If you don't have an official League the application doesn't allow you to enter your subcription.

    Good 'Ol Vincent didn't mentioned major foreign pokefreaks as part of the program, but I would like to encourage anyone with those traits to try out for the program, its one hell of a ride, like none you've ever done before.
