    Event hosted at UVic in the ECS building
    Entrance fee: $5
    Format is VGC 2012
    Registration open at 12:00. Tournament starts at 12:30.
    Expecting 5 rounds of swiss + top cut of 4
    Rounds of top cut will have a time limit of half an hour for the best of 3.​

    The UVic Pokemon Club is hosting a VGC tournament in Victoria BC, Saturday March 31st as a fundraiser for the club. Entry fee is $5 with proceeds going towards hosting more tournaments and sending club members to future VGC events! The rules for team building and format are the same as regular VGC.

    We're gonna be running a Swiss style qualification round, with a finalist bracket. That means that losing once doesn't mean you're out of the tournament! Something I've heard a few people comment on. This event will be starting at 12:00 o'clock with registration opening at 11:30.

    But of course, why should anyone bother travelling to Victoria BC for this? Well, we've got prizes of course!

    1st place will receive a UVic Pokemon VGC Tournament Gold Medal, as well as a hand-made Eelektross Pokemon hat valued over $100!

    2nd place will receive a UVic Pokemon VGC Tournament Silver Medal. Additional prize may be awarded.

    3rd place will receive a UVic Pokemon VGC Tournament Bronze Medal.


    So if you live on Vancouver Island or in Vancouver, Seattle etc... it's just a short drive or ferry ride away to attend this one day event! This is the 2nd of what we hope to be an bi-annual tournament. After the last time, we are going to look into getting someone to be a driver for a food run mid-tournament.

    So if you're in the area, or know someone who is, let them know! You can find more information on our facebook page here!

    Thanks for hearing me out, hope to see you there!

    I don't think I can make this, especially with exams on the horizon (revise early, hang out at VGC while studying less). Markus I'll see you at saturday

    If it'd help, we could make it 12:00 reg and starts at 12:30? 9:00 ferry across arrives in Vic at 10:45ish, so that'd give you guys an hour fifteen to an hour forty five to get to UVic, instead of 45 to 1:15. Think that would let you take the 9 instead of the 7?

    edit: reg will now open 12 and tourney will start 12:30

    I think I announced Registration opened at 11 and the tournament started at 12 yesterday at BC Provincials. Just wanted to clarify that Registration starts at 12:00 and the tournament starts at 12:30. Bring your pokemon PID!

    You can confirm Articuno64 and myself btw. If you want, I can send you my Player ID ahead of time too? Should be taking the 9AM ferry. Thanks for the time change!

    Awesome stuff! See you guys Saturday! And PID in advance isn't really too important. Know if TRE and R Inanimate are coming?

    I think it's pretty likely that we won't be able to make it out to Victoria this time.

    Ah, that's a shame. Well. I will see you guys on either April 14th or 15th!

    I'd like to add, we've got a Pokemon Emerald version to add to the prize pool. How this will be distributed, not sure. Possibly a random draw for anyone participating!

    Congratulations to Max Douglas for his first place victory! Dat Eelektross. Considering the 1st prize, I don't think there was a more suitable team! Also congratulations to Tony for taking 2nd and Jason for 3rd! And thanks to everyone who came out! Almost half the people in attendance were from out of town, so you guys play a big part in making any tournament a success!

    Now if only I didn't have to wait for little kids' parents to pick them up.

    We had one junior and three seniors (grouped into one category) and eight masters, not a great turn out but the room was lively and if there were more people there would be more chances for me (Max Douglas) to not win that Eelektross hat.

    Congrats Starmetroid!

    Well I guess not even R Inanimate can win a tournament he isn't at. I was scared he might be able to after he won a tournament without showing up on the final day. >_> Hopefully we'll be able to make it to the next tournament.
