PE2K was at the Pokemon TCG City Championships at the St Joseph School in Mountain View, California. The City Championships is one of many that are going on across the US and in other countries during November 2006 through January 2007. At this particular location I was at, 69 players participated in the event. 25 players were in the Masters Division (Born in 1991 or earlier), 21 players in the Senior Division (Born in 1992, 1993, 1994 or 1995), and 23 players in the Junior Division (Born in 1996 or later).

 

Picture 1 and Picture 2: Here we are at the St Joseph school in Mountain View, California. The event was held inside the Parish Hall. Picture 3: The Parish Hall provided a nice wide open area for the event. The large area and convenient parking near by makes this a great location for the event.

Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3: Here's some pictures of some of the players playing on the Nintendo DS. Besides taking pictures all the time, I was playing Pokemon Ranger in the spare time I had. I attracted a small crowd of players that finished their matches already. After circling and more circling in Pokemon Ranger, I needed a break after that too. So I let the others there play on my DS with Pokemon Ranger, Pokemon Trozei, and Mario Kart DS.

 

Picture 1 and Picture 2: Now we're down to the top eight players here in the Masters Division tables. Picture 3: This is the top four players remaining in the Senior Division.

Picture 1: Dragonite ex. Picture 2: The first winner was crowned in the Senior Division. If he looks familiar, it's because he also won the City Championships in Santa Clara a few weeks ago that I covered here on the website as well. Picture 3: Now we're down to the final game in the Junior Division and Masters Division.

 

Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3: Jason (in blue), won his game to become to the winner of the Junior Division.

 

Picture 1 and Picture 2: It's getting late in event now and the final game remaining is in the Masters Division. Picture 3: All he's thinking about is getting his prizes, getting something to eat and go home.

 

Picture 1: Time to clean up. Several players lend a helping hand in putting away tables and chairs. Picture 2: With a game best out of three, the game was tied 1-1. This final match will determine the winner. In the end, the lucky pillow prevailed. Picture 3: The winner of the Junior Division took a head start on eating, even taking it with him on stage when getting his prizes.

 

Picture 1: Winner of the Junior Division. Picture 2: Runner-up in the Masters Divison, who gets 10 booster packs. Picture 3: Winner of the Masters Division. The first place prize package in all age groups includes 18 booster packs, a City Championship medal, and a Pikachu bag filled with Pokemon goodies (notebook, hat, and binder).
