As many of you have seen, The Fincastle Pokemon Gym was awarded its 3rd Regional Championship right here in Roanoke, coming this November. That of course leaves us a bit confused when we try to reference it, or the recent one. Both take place in 2018, so we can’t just say the “2018 Blue Ridge Regional” anymore. It’s bad to confuse old people like that. While we are working on branding, we thought we’d share some photos from the Memorial Day event, as we’ve finally had time to sit down and organize them. We will follow-up soon with some more info on the November 2018 event.
We want to jump right into the cool stuff… the Cosplay Contest. Last year, our 1st cosplay competition, was a lot of fun, as we had a small group excellent entrants. This year was the real deal. As we stated before, we are so glad that we had an experienced judge, Mera Babineaux to evaluate the contestants. There is no way we could have picked the best out of this group on our own.
****All of these amazing photos are thanks to the event staff photographer: Doug Morisoli.
Here are a few more of the event.
We will be back with some info on our next event. Check back here often. We also will have a League Challenge (Standard Format) at the Gym at our regular time this Sunday, 6/17. See you there!
