League Challenge Double Header Sunday, September 7

Poster HeaderThe Fincastle Gym Leaders are excited to host the final two League Challenges of the year this Sunday at the Fincastle library.  The Delphox and Greninja League Challenges will close out the 2013-2014 Pokemon League cycle, paving the way for fun, new promos beginning in (we hope) early October.  Between now and then, we’ll continue to have League meetings where players can keep earning 2013-2014 promos (we still have a few “N” left!) while supplies last.

10612993_841987165841467_4828337281413309152_nWe will also have door prizes in each age group.  These include the amazing Pokemon Center items seen throughout this post.


A few side notes (for newer players):

If you sleeve your deck, the entire deck must be sleeved and all of the sleeves must be the same.  If for some reason your deck does not comply with the Standard format rules, you may still play in the event with a starter deck supplied by the Gym.  Gym Leader Marthe and our judges will do a pre-event deck-check of to verify that all of the cards are in the correct format.  Bring your own damage/poison/burn markers and either a coin or clear, 6-sided die (for flips).

If you have any questions, email us at our league email.   We are excited about the event and hope you all are too!  See you Sunday at the Gym!

Since there are two League Challenges taking place on Sunday, we will not have an official League meeting.  Players are still welcome to play casually if they are not attending the tournaments, but no league rewards will be distributed.

*Championship Point totals are based on those awarded during the 2013-2014 Championship Cycle.  Any changes to these points have not yet been published by Play!Pokemon.  If Championship Point awards change from those totals quoted here, the correct award amount will be posted to your Play!Pokemon account by Pokemon.
