The 2011 Roswell Pokémon Regional Championship provides an opportunity for players to test their Pokémon TCG skills, strategy and creativity. The state championship tournaments are the third events in the Pokémon Championship Series, and Premier Rating Points awarded there go toward a potential invitation to the 2011 Pokémon World Championships held in San Diego, Calif., in August.
Competitors are divided equally into three divisions: Junior (born in 2000 or later), Senior (born in 1996–99), and Masters (born in 1995 or earlier). Players in all divisions were competing for exciting Pokémon prizes, including Pokémon TCG booster packs, a State Championships medal, and the honor of being named State Champion.

The Polk Street Players are tuning voices and channeling the melodrama of the glory days of live radio drama, when millions of people were glued to their sets — that was the 1940s. The play is “The 1940 Radio Mystery Theatre” by G. Brent Darnell, who also directs.
Set in a small radio station in San Antonio, Texas, in 1943, the actors gather around microphones. People provide live sound effects and scene-setting music on stage.
Be prepared — this is a fun, interactive show and the audience ends up with a murder mystery of its own to solve! Attendees are invited to dress for the era and enjoy.
The cast includes Daviorr Snipes, Diane Hail, Stephen Banks, Mary Lynn LeCraw, Katie Schaffer, Dru Jamieson, Michael Scarbro, Mary Nimsgern and Eric Gray. There will be four performances: July 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. in the parish hall at St. James’ Episcopal Church, near the Marietta Square. Tickets are $12.50 for Friday and $20 for Saturday dinner shows. Call the box office at (770) 218-9669 for tickets and more information.
