No more than a few feet away from Buckingham Palace itself is St. James’s Park, which will be a new location for the UK branch of the WBO, as all of our non-expo tournaments so far have taken place in Regents Park.

Although Regents Park has been a great venue before, we feel that St. James’s Park is a better location for this time of year.

Not only does the point we’ve chosen have good food and toilet facilities, but it is also very close to a gazebo in the event of rain.

The meeting point will be just up and to the left of point 5 on the St. James’s park map:
http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/st_james_park/

You’ll also be able to see on the map by clicking on “Transport & info”, the nearest tube stations.

We'll me meeting at point 5 (The blue bridge) at 12:00pm, and will move to an area of nearby grass at 1:00 to start the tournament. The tournament will most probably go on until around 3:30, yet it could go on for less, or possibly longer.

We'd recommend travelling to the event from Green Park station (one stop on from Oxford Circus), as it's closest to the event.
• The tournament style will be block round robin, since this worked well at the last event.
• The main tournament will be MFB only, but free battles will allow plastic and HMS as usual.

Items we'd recommend for you to bring would include a hooded coat or jacket in case of rain, possibly an umbrella, and layers such as jumpers and scarves as the weather will still be cold at the time of the tournament.

We'd also recommend that if you do intend to take part in the tournament, then bring your own beys.

This may sound like an obvious suggestion, but in the past people have come without, expecting to borrow other peoples.

This would not be a problem, but more than half the blades that have been lent out to people have either come back damaged from improper use, or not come back at all (as those who visited expo will know).

Obviously this has made people a lot more reluctant to lend out their own beys.

The entry fee will be the same as usual, free with a blader passport (£6 to buy), or £3 otherwise, and as usual there is no age restriction.

We hope you'll be interested in this tournament, and enjoy it as you have done with previous tournaments.

Thanks,
theflightyellz

Banned parts:
For this tournament (which will probably be one of the first of many), Libra will be banned as was decided by popular vote.
We feel that this will make the tournament a lot more interesting, and encourage people to use both new defense, and attack combinations.

ok, i might be coming with my team but i hear there are no team matches at wbo so we will be entering individually if we go, its quite good time for me because the day before im travelling to london so might stay at hotel
btw wouldnt it be cool to have a team match?
but for the tourney in feb put team stingblades in as a maybe
Team battles in basic terms just don't work, which is why the wbo do not support them.
There's no way of controlling which blade hits which blade, and when there are four blades in the stadium at one time it just becomes a bit of a clustered mess anyway.
It would also a lot harder to organize a team tournament for a lot of reasons.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
thats monday 1st of feb to monday 8th of feb please if you can
The tournament is being held on the 19th February, not sure what is particularly hard to understand about this.
I'm guessing it's because you can't make on that date or your half term is early.
