My favorite quarterly events start this weekend! PRERELEASE WEEKENDS! Yeah… I play favorites with my events. 😉
We’re running two each Saturday, so it’s gonna be pretty crazy, but I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at these events. So, here’s the details, and these go for tomorrow and next Saturday as well (ripped right from one of the event pages on Pokemon.com):
Players will receive prerelease product and be given (30) minutes to create their deck. Decks must be built from the cards in the prerelease boxes. No other product can be used during the event. Basic energies will be provided by the staff.
(3) rounds, (30) minutes each, will be played by all players. Please allow for up to (10) minutes between rounds for the staff to input results and pair the next round.
Players will receive (3) additional Ultra Prism booster packs at the conclusion of their (3) rounds, once their round results have been turned in.
Product WILL NOT be available for sale until the release date of the set. In order to receive Ultra Prism product, players must participate in the event. No straight sales will be available until official product release date.
Our staff strives to accommodate players of all ages and skill ranges, as well as players with disabilities. If you or your child requires any assistance during the event, please notify a staff member and we will be happy to make sure that you or your child has the best possible experience during our event.
In addition, we’d like to ask competitors to park in the auxiliary parking lot located behind Great Lakes Trophy, so long as it is in their ability to do so. There is limited parking in front of the shop, and we’d like to reserve those spaces for handicapped parking and for our shorter term customers. Signs will be posted at the entrance of the parking lot to guide you. Thank you for your cooperation!
Registration for the events are from 11:00 – 11:30 AM and 3:30 – 4:00 PM. They are $25 each. Extra prizes will be provided to the top 3 players in each age division at the end of the rounds.
Throughout the day today, we can add your name to the list of players for each event if you wanna guarantee a spot for any of the slots either day. Just give us a call at (734) 425-6780 and let us know that you’re interested! You don’t have to prepay, so if you can’t make it, no sweat. This will ensure a place during the event, but you do have to arrive before registration closes.
See everyone tomorrow for the first of our ULTRA PRISM PRERELEASE SERIES!!!
