New Year, Old Formats!

[Image: lego-new-year.jpg]

Hi everyone! This is the official thread for our January tournament being held Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, MD on Saturday, January 19, 2013.

New Year, Old Formats! will consist of the 3 tournaments celebrating the 3 Beyblade formats we said goodbye to after Zero-G hit the scene: MFB, HMS, and Plastics!

In addition to having Zero-G products for sale I will also have a limited selection of brand new HMS and Plastics for sale for those who are interested in playing in the 2 older formats. Prices for the older beys are a bit more due to rarity, but will run between $25-40 on the low end. PM me for more details.

Location: The Bethesda Marriott Hotel: 5151 Pooks Hill Road, Bethesda, MD in the Norwood Room? Ask at the front desk as I'm not sure which room we are in now. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/maps/trav...-marriott/

The Bethesda Marriott Hotel is located just west of the intersection of 495, 270, and 355 (Rockville Pike). Parking in the surrounding neighborhood is available for free on Pooks Hill Road, but space is limited and first come first served! Otherwise there is parking in the Marriott Lot for $15.

Registration: 11:00am - Noon
MFB Start time: Noon-thirty on the dot
HMS and Plastics Start time: Approximately 3pm
Format: TBD depending on number of bladers
MFB Stadium: BB-10 Attack
HMS and Plastics Stadium: Tornado Attack
Surface: Carpet
Fees: Standard WBO fees ($5 entry fee or free with a Blader Passport) + a $5 room fee

HMS Prizes: Face Booster MAROON [Image: FaceBoosterMAROON.png], Face Booster FLAXEN [Image: FaceBoosterFLAXEN.png], or Face Booster CELESTE [Image: FaceBoosterCELESTE.png]

Yes, it will be starting first. Then the HMS and Plastics will be run interleaved with one another t try and maximize the time that the TA stadiums are in use.
Out of random curiosity... Is there a train or bus station anywhere close to the venue?

I so want to attend one of your "3 for all tournaments" to see how you do this. I'd love to try it but I think it would just take 9 hours to finish 3 tournaments. Maybe I'll make it down to Maryland some time this year...
WOO i'm comin for MFB sooooo excited
Question. Since it's only for one day, that means I won't have to pay to get into the hotel, right? Other than the $5 of course.

I'm unsure, I would think that you would have to pay 5$ for each tournament but it could be all for 5$ but I think its the first option more. Though however, if it does happen to be 5$ per tournament you could just buy a blader passport for 10$ which gives you free tournaments for a year and access to special WBO events.
So in the end it will be
5$ (If its 5$ for all which I doubt)
15$ for all the tournaments
10$ for Blader Passport.
Just to clarify:

$15 for all tournaments
$10 Blader Passport
$5 Room Fee

So, $20 total without the passport, $5 with the passport.
Yo, to be smart since your new, I would pay $10 for passport with $5 room fee if you want to attend HMS and Plastic tournament.

AND, since you hold the passport you can participate WBO lottery each month.
Rip Blader 3 and Fusion Blader will be there!
Darn, I was so excited, but something just came up. Can't come. Maybe February!
Do you still have to pay the fee for all three tournaments if your only competing in one of the tournaments if so i might not be able to make it
You have to pay the fee for each individual tournament. I.E., if you only attend MFB, you only have to pay $5.
Wait, there isn't any room fee info in the OP. Does that mean there isn't one? >u>
$15 for all 3 events + Room fee. I see where hes going. so no fee since we're having 3 tournaments

Ah, okay. Thanks for clarifying.
But I was thinking that Passport holder would have to pay the room fee tho...



CONFIRMED:
Non passport bladers don't have to pay the room fee

Bladers with Passport have to pay room fee.
