Don’t forget there is no Pokemon League this week at the Fincastle Library. That doesn’t mean you have to skip a trip to the library though! Their annual Book Sale is going on Friday and Saturday, so please stop by and support our community Library.
The Gym Leaders will see you back next Sunday for League as usual, and then we’ll head into a flurry of local Trading Card and Video Game Events. Stay tuned here and check out the Upcoming Events page for details.

Basketball fans and Pokemon fans alike, March Madness is here. The Gym Leaders just finished a busy week of games and banquets to wrap our winter sports season up, in addition to watching our Alma Mater battle its way through to the semi’s of their conference tournament (upsetting the #6 and then #3 seeds along the way… way to go Generals!!), all the while making preparations for the up-coming Pokemon State Championship series.

During league play after the event, the Gym Leaders jumped into another group of Gym Leader Challenges. We have been taking on several each week over the last few weeks and had some trainers come very close to earning a Fincastle Gym Badge. Win or lose, each match had also moved us 1 step closer to challenge #300. Last Sunday, someone finally broke through and took away the 1st gym badge earned this year. Continue reading
