I thought we weren't allowed to do cash prizes. But I can't find anything saying no in the Organizer's Guide, so, oh well, cash it is I guess???

Yes I checked the guide over before posting but I'm sure if cash is not allowed a staff member will let me know.

Yes they are allowed in this format but I wouldn’t recommend it because most of them go too fast and run out of stamina quickly
The weather is not looking too promising
Sheesh, $100 each for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Froztz has clearly made a generous if not concerning prizes for placing. I don’t think I’ve even won $100 worth in prizes in all the tournaments I’ve been to combined lol. Anyways, all of you makes sure to have a great time!
I’m coming with a guardian
When I approved the event, I was aware this event was going to be offering larger prizes then typical WBO events. Also, medals and trophies are being given out, and even that isn’t an everyday thing in the WBO. Furthermore, this event does not even charge an admission/venue fee that I am aware of. It’s almost too good to be true? I guess that is perhaps where the some of the concern is coming from.

I cannot find any specific rule that prohibit cash prizes in the organizer’s guide. The event organizer has a proven record of being highly capable and responsible. I personally have little concern. I am excited for the participants who get to have this rare opportunity to compete for large prizes, medals, and trophies.

Wait is it cancelled cuz of the rain?
Give them some time, guys. A 40 foot tent probably requires a bit of effort to move u to place.
If anyone found a ring in the park today please contact me
That was fun guys
Cant wait to see you guys at the next one 👍
Thanks everyone for coming out, NY definitely has some good players!
Froztz,
Thank you for hosting the tournament today. You and your colleagues were very accommodating. The atmosphere was positive and good vibes all around. It’s nice to know all age groups can still come together to enjoy the beyblade culture. Much respect. And looking forward to your next event.
Kenya, Noah’s Mom.
