1. Pokemon as usual on Sunday, July 8, at the Elks, 2-4 pm.
2. You can preorder a box of the upcoming set, Dragons Exalted, at Matt’s Cavalcade of Comics (thank you, Matt!). The cost is $90 for a full box – cash or check preferred – ideally by July 25 (that’s three weeks before the release date of Aug. 15), but Matt is a little flexible. Just stop by the store. See set description below. Roar of dragons, man.
3. Nationals. Here’s a link to an article about the winners = http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/news_op_nats12_day3_tcg-2012-07-01/
4. This weekend I can take the Pokemon Professor exam – again! (It’s been a month since I last “failed” it, or as Connor said, “You didn’t fail it, Mom; you just didn’t pass it.”). I REALLY want a white professor lab coat.
I hope everyone had a nice Fourth. Regards, Linda
