    Nintendo have once again chosen to place their yearly United Kingdom VGC Qualifier in Birmingham, due to the success of last year. Birmingham being more central to the country than somewhere like London may be the reason for this, especially considering the amount of players they wish to sign. Like last year, this year will see the Junior, Senior and Master divisions based upon the ages of the player. More information will be posted in this thread as it becomes available.

    I'll be waiting to go.

    With registration opening at 08:00, what time would you people suggest getting there to ensure a spot? I don't know how many people try to compete in these things...

    Come on, third time lucky please. Obviously getting up early might be an issue. Might just not sleep and get high on sugar and caffeine.

    Good, lie-in time for us Seniors. The date may be a problem given the distance, but I'm not going to miss my last year in Seniors.

    I live about a two hour drive away from Birmingham, so maybe I'll aim to get there at 6am-ish for the Master opening and drive through the night...

    I've never been to one of these before, but hopefully it's all good fun.

    I've improved every time I've attended (twice) so I'm guaranteed to do well this time, right?

    Now I just need to think of a team... (I have no clue what to use.)

    I might show my face I guess. Mainly to admire Gec's fine haircut, and remind myself how small Kinneas is.

    I could also put together some kind of team, but don't hold out on that too much.
