    Thanks to the PLAYERS:
    Thanks to everyone who attended. It was so much fun. I was feeling sick, tired and achy. I've been under the weather, and I STILL enjoyed it a lot. I knew it was going to be great a day right from the start, when you guys didn't need much firing up! You guys were pumped, and ready to go!

    A big thanks to the JUDGES:
    Most of you had judged last year's regionals, and a few of you were in Texas judging for the first time, but ALL of you were great! It wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you so much!

    To PUI, thanks for Regionals! It was a blast again, and the kiddies enjoyed it. :thumb:

    I won't come on here and say that Mia forgot a few things. I'll just say she left a few things out so I could post.

    1. College Park High School - What a jewel. I actually wanted to hold Regionals at this school last year but the school district said no because it had just opened. I settled for Space Center.:eek:

    2. College Park Tennis Team - They had a GREAT fund raiser and took GOOD care of us. They kept the prices down on the food and drinks and still made a lot of money for the tennis team.

    3. Devon Huntoon - Lets not forget the absolutely awesome LIMITED EDITION (Only 3 in the entire world) 2007 Pokemon Southern Plains Regionals Commemorative Hot Wheels. They are numbered 1 of 3, 2 of 3, and 3 of 3. These were donated to our event by Devon, who like me, is a Hot Wheels collector. He commissioned the artist to design it and make three of them to be used as raffle items for our event. We gave away one in each age group, and we're still trying to buy one back from any of the winners!! I'll get a picture up for everyone soon.

    4. Judges & Staff - Mia didn't forget, I'm just adding my two cents. THANK YOU. Y'all were awesome

    5. Players - The support from the local players was overwhelming, and ONCE AGAIN showed WHY The Woodlands, Texas was the right choice for this tournament.

    6. Traveling Players - Thank you for joining us. I hope Regionals was as fun for you as it was for us!
