Pokemon TCG State Championship Recap

We would like to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and supported the Pokemon TCG State Championship events this weekend. We had over 150 players from at least 6 different states who made the journey to see who would be crowned a Pokemon Master!


Special thanks go out to David and Pam Tuskey and their staff for running the event. Without them, none of this would be possible! Also, a huge thank you to all of the parents who sacrificed their weekend to allow their sons and daughters to partake in the festivities.

As we move closer and closer to the World Championships, we are looking forward to hosting more events to give all trainers the practice and points necessary to compete at the highest level!
