    It's a long shot for me being able to attend (even if I was sure I had time off available, I think October is a month we aren't allowed to take time off in) and I am very unsure of what I would run, but this is an event I would try to get to.

    Okay, I was legitimately surprised to figure out that my college's fall break is on this weekend so in theory I could actually drive to one of these events.

    BUT I am getting tired of the rule set and just want to be lazy and rate teams, give out Pokemon, and tutor and not prepare for this tournament. Plus, B2W2 comes out a week before these and I would like to actually play the normal games. Florida's one is on MLKjr day so I think I'll visit there and Athens instead of driving all the way to Texas!

    Just throw a team together and have fun (I'm paying for gas, that's like a college tuition with the way prices are)
