I tried not to! The Marriott is very expensive for me as the room fee does not cover what I have to pay for the room.

I am still hopeful that I will have a better location (for parking) in January!
Do the people who have to come with me pay room fees? They are not participating.
Hey Aru, isn't it free for everybody besides the room fee?

It starts on Dec. 16.

Let make this clear

If your participating the tournament you pay the room fee + WBO fee.

If your not participating (Parents watching or siblings) they don't have to pay the fee.
I take it something came up with my park shelter suggestion?
Dude, we are no going to just play in a park on a 40 degree day in December. And, we have a location already.
I'm no where near a new yorker blader or Canadian blader that would play out in 40 degree or lower.

Be grateful that he got a indoor venue which is expensive....
No, a park shelter is essentially a building at the park like these: http://www.montgomeryparks.org/permits/find/activity/
actually, excuse me, a better term for them is park activity buildings
im sorry i wont be able to make it i have to dpend the day with my freind csuse hes moving soon but if i end up finding a solution ill post but until then im not confirmed
OK, I am now confirmed! Yay!
Probably won't place, but I will try!

I have a counter.
nvm change of date for my b-day party. I cant come.
Anyone bringing any plastics? IF so Id bring mine.
I could bring a couple, if you'd bring a bb-10, but i won't bring anything good, don't want to risk breaking anything hard to replace in freeplay
edit: bb-10/ plastic equivalent of bb-10
How about HMS? Im interested xD
