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:

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.

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.

either way, I think we'll still know who you are.. It isn't a significant change.
just noticed this
[We'd recommend travelling to the event from Green Park station (one stop on from Oxford Circus), as it's closest to the event.

but i thought st jamses park station was closer
We're on the side of the park furthest away from St James' Park Station, so it isn't considering the part of the park that we're in.
I've walked it from both directions, Green Park is definitely the quicker of the two if only by a few minutes.
Either are close, the choice is entirely yours.

Won't be able to come, can you take me off the list please.
if anyone one is selling any of the following beyblades please let me know: Burn Phoenix, Poison Serpent, L Drago, Libra DF145BS and anyone except flame saggitario and bull
Dude these should be posted in the thread in the bey marketplace. Also I doubt anyone will be selling the first two since most people don't even have them yet so they wouldn't be selling them.
Can't believe the turn out for this, currently have no idea how on earth we're going to manage this number of people.
I think we're going to have to do best of 3 rounds from the start instead of the usual best of 5 for each battle just to cope with the numbers.
Good job for organizing this! I will just say it now as I might forget, I hope this tournament goes well! Good luck everyone!

There's 23 of us coming, some users (Me possibly included) bringing friends as well who may be wanting to blade, using basic math for the amount of people we have and from the time we're expected to usually star, we could be obviously needing a few more stadiums if we want the tournament to finish at our preferred time.

Then again, I could be wrong.
