    Amazing thread, I love the captions on the pictures!

    I think I did at least meet most of you guys in Hawaii. I really wish I would have hung out with you guys more, but I did have to watch my 11 year old brother the whole time (I was his companion and he won the trip) and he was the #1 priority.

    I lost to Evan Falco in the first round of the LCQ. I totally did not mind that as he was a really cool guy and he was surprisingly a skilled player too (he made some great predictions in our battle which won him the match and I think he ended up 13th on Saturday). We made a deal that the winner of our battle had to make it all the way to Worlds and he came through.

    awesome thread, ninahaza you are truly one of the best photographers and caption-creators out there, along with other super star recorder DM! this was a lovely and fantastically entertaining read, it just inspires me (and probably the rest of the vgc crowd) to succeed next year and have an even bigger smogon party at national's and worlds!

    YEs he got 5th place in juniors. He ended up 10th in Worlds, he missed out on top 8 because of opponents winning %.

    That was a great thread to read, Man. You really made it a lot better with the picture captions. haha

    I hope even more of us will be able to make it to Worlds next year since it's San Diego. We'll just have to wait and see. :)

    Ninhaza this was a great thread. It really did capture the excitement of the entire event. I personally wish I could have gotten to meet you and some of the other people from Smogon who were there, but I did meet some. (By the way, I am in the picture with GreySong.) I'm pumped up for VGC 2011 more than I ever was before, so you can count on me to make an appearance next year!

    Random question #1: How the fuck did you afford a trip to Hawaii PBB? FU!

    Random quesiton #2: How did you afford it Ninahaze? o.O

    Random question #3 (not really a question though): Why am I so poor? I feel so left out :(

    Anyways, thanks again for sharing Ninahaze! Always fun looking at your pics.

    I can't get enough of Rory's critical hit. So obnoxious, but so awesome.

    I was even standing right next to you guys when he did that, but I was looking at the monitor and didn't even notice the thumbs up until I saw the footage later. XD I was too busy thinking, "Wait, those nicknames look familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on the reason..."

    This is a fucking awesome thread. I don't participate in this VGC stuff, but I love that there's such a smogon representation and such camaraderie between all of the players there. Fuck yeah, America, and I don't even know you bluecookies but you represented fucking awesome, appear to be a kickass dude, and I'm proud to be American right now.

    Good show, people.
