    Talk to you all soon!!!

    The Trivia Contest!!!

    You have seen me do these before...

    You get a sheet of 15 or so Pokemon Questions...

    You have to answer/guess at them all.

    If you get them ALL right, you could be in a 3 question playoff for the title. (We always end up in a Playoff)

    Multiple Prizes over multiple age groups here!

    The questions are limited to - Card Trivia (all sets)...Cartoon Show Trivia (yeah, you watch it!)...Pokemon Movie Trivia (some of my favorite moments!!)...Pokemon "Worlds" History (which begins in 2004 in my book)...Pokemon Champions...Pokemon Badges...(Sorry, no video game questions...those are too tough with all the SHARKED games around)

    The CONCRETE SQUIRTLE from the Fan Appreciation Tourney in 2002 will be making an appearance at the Regional too!!!


    See you ALL THERE!

    Are there any sort of hotel deals that you could find, Vince?

    Right now, I'm about 50/50 on where I want to be, either here or the Dells. It largely depends on where I can get a Staff position and which place is cheaper for a couple nights stay...

    Those interested in staffing please PM me on the 'gym.

    It is the best, and most effective way to get a hold of me.

    I am looking not only for judges, but for parents who will "be there anyway" to help with things like the Art Contest, the Trivia contest, score running, organizing and the like.

    Just PM me on what you would like me to do. Hey Melissa, this year I have put CAKEWALK into my don't have to bake for free anymore!!! (for those of you named Melissa, and who have baked for free at a lot of my previous events, and are simply, cool people)

    Melissa, I think holding a staff meeting at IPC with any of the area staff would be cool.

    I would also be looking at holding such a meeting at the space of the event in the Mills so that all can get acquainted with the space.

    I am going to do a "Set up Night" on Friday April 11th where we will have pizza and staff prizes where we will come in for some early set up for the Regionals. I am considering a "staff draft" that night for anyone who is in town. We will see.

    Given that we are having staff from Sedalia, Tennessee, Kansas and all over the big planet, not all will be able to attend, but it might be a great excuse just to reenergize and plan the month before the event!

    I like the idea.

    Let's look at doing it after States on March 8th, maybe the Friday the 14th of March..

    GREAT idea!

    First Wave of Door Prizes is IN!!!

    I am planning on giving away no less than 100 Door prizes.

    Minimum door Prize will be a Level X card!

    This is above the "Everyone gets a figure" and other promotions you have seen in the past!

    I currently have over 60 Pokemon Level Xs dedicated to this cause...and we will have a TON more by the time the party starts!

    I am striving to say a Pokemon Level X for the first 100 people, but we are not there yet, so they are still door prizes!


    On we go!

    Early Scheduling Note.

    Due to the amount of people that are projected to be there, I anticipate Registration taking a bit longer than usual.

    For that reason, and to keep everyone from starving, we are going to do registration, play one round, and then break for a 45 minute lunch break.

    There will be activities going on at lunch, ganes, trivia, art contest and the like, but I have found in these larger events, the bigger they are, the later lunch gets, which is not fair for the little guys.

    Vince, you should order like 80 boxes of pizzas and then sell them a dollar a per slice, or something like that.
