I went, awful 4 am start though. Got to the 3rd Round same as last year =(, but was flat out beaten by a rain team, he prdictions were better, he was Italian, but he played better than me, so deserved the win, so i congrationed him, and moved on and ended up watched the final with him. it was still a great day, and having forgein players is great, they were were very sportmanship like the few i encountered, and if you can't beat them in your own regionals how are you, going to win at the worlds. Got a Picture with Ben(gary) and got to hold the trophy that as close i'm ever going to get to it.xD, and his friend code, so time to prepare for never year, hopefully i can try the european events, but i need to get over that 3rd round. Either way Congrats to Ruben, Ben, Picollo and Showsni Enjoy Hawalii , it was a great day with fellow pokemon enuthusiasts.
