The Virginia (or Mid-Atlantic, if you like) Regional Championship for the Pokemon TCG and VG will take place next weekend (1/19/13 – 1/20/13) in Sandston, VA (outside Richmond). The event will take place at the Doubletree Richmond Airport, with registration from 8:00am – 9:30am on Saturday for all 3 age groups in the TCG. Registration for the VG tournament takes place on Sunday from 8:00am – 9:30am (juniors & seniors) and at 11:00am for masters. Both events are FREE to enter. To help anyone planning to attend prepare for these events, the Fincastle Pokemon Gym will hold a special session at league this Sunday (1/13/13).
The Gym will hold league at its regular time this Sunday afternoon. The only change for league this Sunday is that the gym leaders are postponing any gym challenges until the next time we are all there again on 1/27/13. We will all be there this week, but as the upcoming event is a major event, we need all the time to test our own decks that we can get. Immediately following league play and trading time, only those who plan to attend the Regional Championship are invited to stay at the library and prepare. We will discuss major decks we expect to see and will have our computer available to look at popular internet decks. We will also gladly take the time to go through your individual builds with you and see if we can make any recommendations. We should also have plenty of time to help you play test your builds. You are welcome to bring your VG with you and we will offer what little we know about VG teams and strategies, but don’t count on us to set you up with a winning strategy, as we are still learning the ins and outs of the VG ourselves.
If you are more interested in the special session, feel free to wait and come at around 5:30 when we are wrapping league activities up. We will order a pizza or 3 to feed those staying over. We will stay until we’ve had time to help everyone attending the session. The only time constraint we have is Gym Leader Joel having to be at work by 11pm, but we don’t anticipate staying THAT long. It is undetermined if we will have league on 1/20/13, but we will post and let you know as soon as we know. See you at the Gym!
