Please update your calendars (as we update ours).

The season following Yveltal will be Chesnaught! Our LC for Chesnaught has been tentatively scheduled for June. We will post a confirmation once we get a set date.

Also, Nintendo has announced the 3DS remakes for Ruby and Sapphire versions, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. They will be released worldwide in November of this year. (Check out the box art–are Kyogre and Groudon getting new formes, or perhaps are they Mega Evolutions?)

League Cancellation Reminders! 03/07/2014

Posted by Gryphon in Events, League News, Tournaments.

For the month of March, we will not be holding a League session on the 22nd. This is the day for the Georgia State Championships in Duluth (TCG only).

March 29th will be the day for our Xerneas LC. Registration is $5 for all participants. There is a possibility of a League session being held afterward if time and space constraints allow. (We’ll ask Palkia and Dialga if it’s OK.)

Finally, April 5th is the day for the Regional Championships in Athens (TCG on Saturday/Sunday, VG on Sunday only), so League will also be cancelled for that day.

If you still need to get your Xerneas Season participation credit, please make sure you attend a League session on either March 8th or 15th!
