HELP

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Many thanks to our former Comics MD League Leader, Nico, who ran the league at Comics MD for about a year. The League Leader position is now vacant. The Comics MD Gym has room to grow. The League Leader plays a vital role. Will you step up?

We’re looking for somebody who is able to:
-Sign up new players and inform them of the benefits of league and tournaments
-Give out league prizes provided by The Pokémon Company
-Assist players with deckbuilding, give players advice
-Answer questions about Pokémon TCG

Optional Stuff:
-Another great thing would be to have someone who can run weekly tournaments, this is just a plus

Serious applicants, please. If interested, send an email to nicholaskirkpatrick@hotmail.com. The Comics MD Gym Pokémon TCG Leauge is at Comics MD in Accokeek, MD. The league runs from 12-4pm on Saturday.

Let’s not beat around the bush here: the league is not as big as Leonardtown Gym. However, this league is important; the bigger this league gets, the greater chance there is of running Premier Events there, and that means there will be more Premier Events available to Southern Maryland players (Prereleases, City Championships, Battle Roads). The Pokémon TCG is alive and well in SoMD. Can you contribute?

I’ve been involved with Organized Play for over six years. I know this game has a future.
-Nicholas
