The format for this event is Burst Standard. Please read the Burst Standard rulebook prior to confirming your attendance to ensure that you or your child have the appropriate equipment to compete. Legal parts / launchers will not be lent out by event staff.  Tournament is capped at 24.

Host: Allen Schaffer

Location: will be at the nearest pavilion to the restrooms. It is a first come first serve basis so we will be there early to reserve the spot.

Time: As the tournament will start promptly at 1:00pm, please plan to arrive around 12:00pm when registration will begin. Registration will close at 12:45pm. Confirming your attendance on the WBO event page does not substitute for registration at the venue.

COVID-19 Precautions READ THIS BEFORE CONFIRMING YOUR ATTENDANCE:

This event will cooperate with https://www.montcopa.org/3524/COVID-19-Guidance

- Social distancing of 6 feet when possible

- Signs and markings indicating 6 feet gaps

Other Information:

Prizing:
1st place will get to choose first between 
1 Vanish Fafnir, 1 Union Diabolos, or 1 Roar Fafnir!

2nd place will get to choose between the 2 remaining and then 3rd will get whatever is left.

Special thabk you to Four Gaming for supporting this tournament with prizing!

Please come prepared. It is helpful for both hosts and judges if all participants bring at least one Takara Tomy or Hasbro-manufactured Beyblade of their own and more than one launcher when possible. Additionally, parents of children under the age of 13 must be present for the duration of the event, as tournament end times can be difficult to estimate, and we would hate for someone to be left behind once it is over.



Be aware of your belongings. We'd advise users to please, please look after your stuff. While yes this is a Beyblade tournament and we're not suggesting that any of us would attempt to take each other's stuff it is still happening at a public venue where other people (who may not be so friendly) are going to be present as well. Of course, if you see a personal belonging lying around bring it up any of the judges so we can return it to the right person. Your co-operation is appreciated!



All players must arrive on-time. The tournament will begin no later than 1:00 PM and is expected to run for about 3 hours, though if there is a large turnout it may take longer. Please plan accordingly. If you do not arrive at the scheduled start time, you risk being excluded from the tournament. The software we use to run our events–Challonge–does not allow us to add in extra participants once the tournament has started.


If you know in advance that you will be late, please post in this thread or contact someone at the event and depending on the circumstances we can perhaps still include you if we know you will arrive soon.

Please don't do that. If it's full, just keep checking back until a spot opens up. You don't need to post about your disappointment.

There are 2 other tournaments in the same location 2 weeks after this one. They have open spots, but are for Metal Fight Limited and Burst Classic formats. If you have beys valid for those formats (check their format rules to see what's valid), consider registering for those instead.
Sadly I couldn’t make it to Crisis’ tournament last time but I’m really fired up for this one!
I'm hyped for this Tourney, and i just ordered the full set for Roar Bahamut, so hopefully with the extra shipping i did, very much hoping i can get it before the 11th

Shindog, can we cap it at 32 like crisis' tourney

Elaborating on this, there will be an incredibly large number of other organizers present. TSO, Yami, Ardmore Blader(Oh snap Ardmore welcome back), Geetster99, Sniper, Beymaster15963, Crisis Crusher, and also myself. Allen was instrumental in helping run Crisis' recent event, and the two worked more or less in tandem. 32 or greater should not be an issue, first event or not.

3 stadiums were run at the last tournament, but space permitting, he could probably easily decide to run 4 since it looks like there will be 3 more experienced judges in addition to last time.

Please understand that if you ask something that is out of the ordinary.  I will usually take it to the Organized Play team to have at least some of the other team members review the request as well.  This takes a little bit of time.  I think this is a good way of doing things.  I saw and replied to your DM on discord.  I did not get a reply from you when I asked a question on Discord.  I would appreciate more than 4 hours to respond and resolve, and also, maybe a reply. There is no need to ask me in multiple ways.  I already replied to you Discord request within 33 mins.
@thread the cap is up to 32. Do sign up the staff team has granted us these privileges so be sure to thank them.

Why only 2 stadiums? You have the people who can bring stadiums, so why only 2?

I can, and always do, bring 2 stadiums. We could run 3 or 4 or more if Allen wants.
As long as enough judges are willing to help with judging we can run 3-4 with no problems. Just save any judge matches for last.
I personally like to stagger the judge matches throughout the round when I organize. If you have 4 primary judges, a couple backup judges, and 4 beystadiums, this is possible without slowing down the round too much.

When you get a primary judge vs. primary judge match, you have one of the backup judges judge that first. If you have a primary vs. non-judge match, do that one after the current judge match is done. Just sort of stagger them so that one/two of the judge matches are going on at any given time.

Example: Let's say you have 24 people total, A-D are judges, and E-F are backup judges. If you get an A vs B match, have E judge it first on stadium 1. Have C,D, and F run matches on the remaining stadiums. Keep running new matches in stadiums 2-3 as they complete. Once A and B and E are done with that match, A can judge other judge matches (say, E vs. F) while everyone else works on non-judge matches. The C vs. someone and D vs. Someone matches can be judged during the third group of matches in that round.

If you save ALL the judge matches for the end of the round, the round end tends to bog down in close matches. It's always a hassle dealing with judge matches, you just sort of have to schedule them on the fly based on availability and whim.

That’s fair and seems easy.
