Pre-release Wrap Up.

Deathstar_Pokeball_SpaceA long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…  OK, it was last week and just down the road in Carolina…  the Gym Leaders finished up two long weekends full of Flashfire fun and have great results to report.  For two of the events, Fincastle and Cornelius, NC, Gym Leader Marthe set person attendance records with 37 and 54 players respectively.

The Fincastle Flashfire Prerelease, bolstered by members of our neighbor-league at Star City Games, was also the first Fincastle pre-release where Masters outnumbered the other age divisions.  Everyone had a great time, and got fun new cards to add to their collections.

May the Fourth saw the whole family traveling south to Cornelius, NC, to enjoy the “unofficial” Star Wars Day with a huge group of Pokemon fans.  The 54 players who came made this event even larger than the Cornelius City Championship.  Several players really got into the spirit of the day and joined Gym Leaders Marthe and Georgia in dressing up as their favorite Star Wars characters.  Thanks to all those who turned out (and helped out).  Enjoy a few of our photos and we’ll see you this Sunday at the Gym!
