On Saturday March 1 my family and I drove to Georgetown to play in the Ontario Provincial Championship. We were there for more than 8 hours and we had a great time in the company of more than 100 people. Between us we played 18 matches, winning 13 and losing 6. At the end of the day we left with 52 Great encounters packs, 3 promo cards, 1 staff promo card, 2 pins (for some reason 2 of us never got handed pins), an Empoleon bag, an Infernape binder a Torterra notebook and a $300 travel award. My son walked out with the heaviest first place trophy I have ever seen and the biggest smile on his face! Total cost, about $6 in gas and $15 for food. We will remember this day for a long time. The very next day 28 players showed up at our league to play for another 3 hours. Special thanks to Marvin and his crew. To Matt for all of our playtesting. To Geneses and BJ for their enthusiasm. To all of the players who exhibited the spirit of the game. Thanks POP!
