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.

same i want to buy the old ones i just dont know where to start
Anywhere you could use bey uk as your base line of what beys to get starting from a - z.
Dude i've got some plastics for sale if you want them.

Btw where do you think people found out about beyblade on ebay? WBO so without users on here selling suff on ebay and making a thread on WBO we would all be paying like £20 for 1 bey, i just think it's mean saying that cause to me it sounds like your trying to make him not buy from megablader2.
I may be bringing a friend, if he isn't busy on the day.
Note: There will be a small surprise at the event.
You can speculate if you want, but as I said, it is something small.

And before anyone goes there:
  • Blader DJ will not be making a guest appearance.
  • We will not be having a 10ft wide stadium.
  • Daniel DeSanto will not be visiting, or narrating battles.

IMPORTANT
Due to the size of this tournament, it'd be really helpful if we could get somebody to bring another attack type stadium.
We currently have three, but it seems that we'll need to divide in to 4 blocks of 5 people.
To get the tournament done in a decent time it would be helpful to have an extra stadium.
Anyone who can bring one, either post here or PM me.
I think i know what it is.. LMAO.
Erm... I'm slightly worried as to what you think it is
We need a Blader DJ at AN. That would be awesome.

LOL why is that? xD.
because it isn't really a 'LMAO' kind of surprise, so no idea what on earth is going through your head ><
I'm just thinking that you're picturing some kind of beyblading pelican, or something equally odd.
If this is the case, you may be disappointed.

You lost my intrest at that part, man.

No, there couldn't considering the anime hasn't aired yet.
