|Recruiting Local Pokemon Fans! ^.^

Nintendo DS Owners in Huntsville, AL
Greetings, fellow North Alabamian DS owners! =D|
My name is Kath; I'm sixteen and currently living in Athens. I'm looking to organize a Huntsville-based group for older fans and supporters of the Pokemon franchise, including the games, TCG, and anime. I've always been surprised by the Huntsville area's general enthusiasm for the various aspects of Pokemon, from the clubs held at bookstores early on to (more recently) Athens' own TCG league, hosted by the now-defunct Valhalla Cards and Comics. With the recent release of Platinum and the phenomenon enjoying a bit of revival, I thought it would be effective to "seize the moment" by bringing North Alabama's resident fans together to meet one another and recruit new fans.
I thought it might be ideal for meetings to be held twice a month at the same date and time (for example, at 5:00 p.m. on the first and third Fridays each month). Meetings could possibly take place in the Fountain shopping center on North Memorial Parkway (with Toys 'R' Us and Books-A-Million, both Poke-friendly venues) and in members' homes, though I'm open to other suggestions. Some of the activities I have in mind for us to do include wi-fi battles and such, merchandise swaps, art exchanges, karaoke and Wii nights, movie viewings, and holiday events. If there's enough interest, maybe we could restart the local TCG league and host it at the library.
Please reply or PM me with any and all feedback. I'm really hoping to make this group a success and keep the spirit of Pokemon alive in and around Huntsville! ^_~
