Pokémon ORAS Midnight Launch Events: Help us build a complete list!

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS on November 21st (November 28th in Europe). As with the release of Pokémon X and Y last year, many stores and fan groups are organizing events to celebrate the release. With your help, we're once again compiling a list of all midnight launch events from across the globe.

Their is a midnight release in Troy New York 740 Hoosick Rd
The GameStop at 5300 W Main St, Kalamazoo Township, MI 49009 will be holding a midnight release. It is preceded by an OU tournament starting at 6pm, sign ups at 5pm. Employees will be using Gen III Pokemon in the tournament, while any guests may use any that would qualify in the OU tier dictated by Smogon.
A local Game Stop at 1325 Paradise Dr, West Bend, WI 53095 is having a Midnight release. Although i think it's a dual-event, for both Pokemon and Sm4sh.
There will be a midnight release at the EB games in Stone Road Mall in Guelph, Ontario, Canada (435 Stone Rd West). The event is for both the release or OR/AS and Smash Bros. for Wii U.
The GameStop at the address provided below is having one. They start confirming orders at about 6pm. Not certain how they'll fit everyone in that tiny location since the larger local one got the axe.

There's a midnight launch at EB Games in Caroline Springs (Caroline Springs Square Shopping Centre near the corner of Caroline Springs Boulevard and Lake Street in Caroline Springs) . Just got a SMS from them as I pre-ordered Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire there. But unfortunately, I won't be going to the midnight launch.

EDIT: EB Games Caroline Springs will open at 9:00pm tonight for the midnight launch. There is also a breakfast launch at said store at 8:00am tomorrow morning.
