    IDIOT QUESTION WARNING:

    Coming from someone who has absolutely no (read "zero") experience with TCG, I assumed that each location would have two dates. There would be one Tourney in November, and then another at the same location in April. Am I to understand that half the tourneys are held in certain areas in November and the other half in different locations in April?

    Okay yes they do have massive dust storms in AZ, but why would that do anything with the VGC there. I was talking about what happened with the Regionals in Arizona?

    Nice that Philly going to have a VGC. I can easily get to that one.

    Has anybody heard of one in NJ in the fall?

    Philly+NJ are part of the North East Regional, so Philly is our only one.

    The only thing we have to go off of is TCG locations from last year and patterns.

    NOT exactly true. Mountain west only has Colorado. If you are in Utah, the closest spring 2012 locations are going to be Salem, OR or SoCal.

    So far i have:
    November 2011 - Denver, CO
    Spring 2012 - Salem, OR

    Yes mattj, the same location will not have a tournament twice. Some will be in November and others will be in April going off what I saw a PTO say.

    Actually, on second thought, Fort Wayne is closer... but only by 25 minutes.

    Everyone who is complaining about the lack of stops: BE PATIENT. We are still finding out about new stops and there is every possibility that your particular region may be getting one. Patience is a virtue.

    There will be VGC Regionals in Florida at the same time/ location as the TCG event (November).

    Closest Canadian tourney to you will be the Canadian Nationals in Toronto, about a 5-6 hour drive away.

    Even so, you have to be a Canadian citizen to qualify for paid trips (within the Canadian league), as far as I know.
