Yes, you read that right, Spinoff is back on!

After a little negotiation the guys at the MCM Expo have agreed to give us some space for the tourney. Awesome, right? Now here's the hard part: forget everything you have previously heard about Spinoff. Seriously, it'll just confuse the hell out of you. Let's start a fresh, okay?

Okay. Spinoff is now a two day event. It'd be great if you could make both days but if you can only make one then that is fine too. We will have the main tourney on Saturday 23rd. It is scheduled to start at 12:00. This may be pushed back till like 12:30 if people are stuck in queues, etc, but no later than this. If you want to take part you must have registered before then. We will have free battles and demos to the other Expo attendees on both the Saturday (when we're not doing the tourney) and the following Sunday. We may have a mini tourney on the Sunday, depending on the number of people.

The actual tourney will start at roughly midday on the Saturday. If you've put down that you're coming and I can see you're not there then I can wait a bit but I'd like to get it started around that time. I'll post a picture or something later but for now, my number is *number deleted because you don't need it anymore*. Use as appropriate (running late, can't find us, etc.)

As Spinoff is now being hosted inside the Expo, you must buy a ticket. You can either buy a Fast Track Ticket that will allow you early and relatively queue free access to the event, or you can turn up on the day and buy a ticket when you get there. However, if you do this then you may have to wait in some pretty long queues. For that reason, it is advised that you order tickets in advance. For more inormation, please look here: http://www.londonexpo.com/show_information/tickets.html

Transport to the Excel Center is easy as it has very close train and DLR links. Just start at the Excel Center and work backwords to your house! If you have any queries on how to get there then please PM me so I can help you out. Alternatively, this may be of help: http://www.excel-london.co.uk/visitors/travel

It would be nice if you could PM me or post to say you're definitely coming but if not then don't worry. In any case, spread the word and bring along as many friends as you can!

If you have any other questions or queries please ask here or PM me. I'll be sure to answer quickly. If it is a smaller question I would appreciate it if you PMed me rather than spamming up the thread. Thanks a lot in advance. Wink



Obviously the most important part is that we all get to meet and battle each other, but, as an added bonus, we have some prizes. Wink

~Saturday~
1st Prize: 4x RBV2
2nd Prize: 3x RBV2
3rd Prize: 2x RBV2

~Sunday~
1st Prize: 1x RBV2
2nd Prize: 1x RBV2
3rd Prize: 1x RBV2

For those of you who are curious, RBV2 is a pretty awesome RB. Most of the blades in it have good parts, and there's the chance of getting a Libra which is obviously a staple part. Here's what you could win:

Aquario 105B
Aquario DF145SF
Bull DF145HF
Libra 100F
Libra D125HF
Pisces D125BS
Virgo 100B
Virgo 125BS



It seems an attendance list is necessary so.....here we go. Joyful_3 It'd be great if anyone who is 'unconfirmed' could confirm whatever their answer may be as soon as possible. I do apologise if there are any mistakes, I'm sure you can understand that with all the 'it's on', 'no it's off', 'no it's on', 'no it's off' stuff, it is a little confusing. ^^;

I am hesitant to put any more than that. I don't want people to be put down for something they had no intension of going to and then people getting annoyed at them for it. ^^; Who knows, I may have already put too much. :X

As you can see on page 12, Espio is working on another list but let's wait a little till that's updated here. :3

Joyful_3

Were in this big time!
I see someone was busy and I am not liing when I say this, but since you said you were talking to someone from MCM, I knew it would lead to something but I didn't think it would be this big.

Very good work Rocky-san and Thank you! I would take my hat off to you if I weared one. Now I have one problem of my own I must sort out.
this is the best day of my beyblading career

Only if you stop spamming.
ok ill stop just come man
Wow, this is seriously official Grin A lot of people need to be there though for a good first impression so maybe this can happen again next year... So has anyone contacted any other UK members (on WBO but haven't said anything regarding the Spinoff, Youtube, friends, etc)?
^ lmao.

Aqua, that's one of my few concerns. I decided I'm gonna grab as many people as I can out of the crowds and at least cover them in leaflets so it'll look like a decentish show for the MCM guys but we really need as many people as possible to come. D: Brad, you didn't PM the UK bladers did you? Or did you? If not then I'll PM everyone. :3
Don't think so, I never got an PM. Or maybe it was sent to the people who we know haven't been informed.
^ It wasn't. I'm sending one to every UK member now. All at once. 8D

You probably don't really know what I'm talking about. XD
The "love rocky xxx"is going to make everyone come XD
*reads PM, clicks link*

Hell yeah Rocky! Grin

Seriously, people should see the grin I've got going. Great news.

I should be there no problem. I plan to get to the Expo before it opens. If I'm late it would have been a waste of a fast-track ticket.

But yeah, unless something goes wrong (me being open minded there), I'll be about both days.
Awesomeawesomawesome. I don't wanna spam this thread so I'm not gonna respond each time someone says they're coming but yeah.......that's great. Grin Can you bring your own blades or no?
Unless it's me. Tongue_out
Still, if I can't come I wish you all the best. If it is a shamble, I have no right to say anything. But
