Join us on Saturday, January 14th, 2017 for a Toronto Beyblade Burst Tournament downtown at Anime Shogatsu! Last year we hosted a great event at the first edition of this new anime convention in Toronto, and since they're back again this year ... so are we!

Please be sure to arrive ON TIME for this tournament. We will finish registration at 12:30PM and will begin the tournament immediately. If you think you're going to be a little bit late, let me know and we may be able to work something out. Thank you!

If you can make it, please hit the blue JOIN TOURNAMENT button at the top of this page! See you all there!

The exact room we will be hosting the event at inside of the The Michener Institute at the convention is still to be determined. As soon as we know, we will update the thread and let everyone know.



Anime Shogatsu Membership Required
Please note that to enter the convention and gain access to our event, a membership for Anime Shogatsu 2017 is required ($15). Purchase your Anime Shogatsu 2017 membership online here. Memberships are also available at the door, but we recommend purchasing online ahead of time.

Because this event is at a convention, the regular WBO entry fee will not apply.




What is Beyblade Burst?
[Image: gnJ23kG.png]
Beyblade Burst is the brand new, third generation of Beyblade by TAKARA-TOMY! It launched in 2015 in Japan and Hasbro recently launched it in Canada in September 2016. If you are not familiar with Beyblade Burst, please take a look at the Beyblade Wiki article covering it, the Beyblade General Forum, and the Beyblade Burst Hasbro Topic for the most up to date information about Hasbro's release of the series internationally.



No Bey? No Prob!
Don't have any Beyblades from this new series? No problem! We would be happy to lend a Beyblade and launcher to you to use for the duration of the event!



Side Notes
Please 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: 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.

All questions for this tournament may be asked in this thread!

This tournament is in Toronto, Ontario, which is in Canada, not the United States. You can sign up at the top by hitting the 'Sign Up' button, but you also have to remember that you have to physically attend the event Smile

I do not think I will make it for Shogatsu this year! I want to study for the numerous exams that I have. Have fun, everybody! Smile

Can't wait for tomorrow! Smile

I'm so sad I couldn't come this morning. I was feeling super sick and felt it would be a bad idea if I pushed myself to go. I was really looking forward to playing, and I will eagerly await the results! I want to know what combos were prevalent today, especially.

I'm now so thirsty to play Beyblade that if I get this new job and they ask me to work the 29th I'm gonna say no. LOL
What an eventful day! Here's a preliminary wrap-up:

Rankings:
First Place: JesseObre
Second Place: ✱
Third Place: Kei

Room was tremendously cramped, this year they put us in the same room as the coat check, and so while the tournament was going on, we had frequent problems with people walking by too closely to bladers who were preparing to shoot, and the volume of moving people made it difficult for any bystanders not participating in the tournament to stick around and spectate.

Had the coat check not been in the same room, it would've been the perfect size. I also made things a bit more complicated by spilling my vanilla coke all over the floor at the beginning

Can't believe nobody else besides * has posted yet! Cramped room aside, I had such a great time at this event! Really felt like it had been so long since our first A&C Games tournament less than a month ago. I was really happy to see a handful of new kids not only show up to play in the event, but seem so excited and passionate about Beyblade too. Thanks for coming DRose, Scorcher Julian, Hyunsu, monaco (and ArmaanTO for coming back after first attending at our last tournament)!

Yeah, we're definitely going to make sure that next year we ask for a larger room not only to make things easier for everyone playing and wanting to spectate, but for safety reasons too.



Our next tournament at A&C Games on January 29th is coming up soon. Hope to see you guys there!
I want to go again!

Hey 1234beyblade, can you please submit the results spreadsheet for this event by the end of this week? It has already been over 14 days, the amount of time specified in the Organizers' Guide for results submission.

Thank you! If you have any questions or if there's anything preventing you from doing it, please let us know.
