Host: The Supreme One

LocationThis event will be held outdoors at MLK Jr. Park.

Time: As the tournament will start promptly at 12:00pm, please plan to arrive around 11:00am when registration will begin. Registration will close at 11:45am. If the participant cap has not been met at this time, waitlisted players will be offered a spot. Confirming your attendance on the WBO event page does not substitute for registration at the venue.

Prizes: Due to WBO funds currently being put on hold, prizes will not be offered at this event (fortunately this also means no entry fees!)

Other Information:
Please come prepared. It is helpful for both hosts and judges if all participants bring at least one Takara Tomy or Hasbro-manufactured Beyblade of their own and more than one launcher when possible. Additionally, parents of children under the age of 13 must be present for the duration of the event, as tournament end times can be difficult to estimate, and we would hate for someone to be left behind once it is over.

Be aware of your belongings. We'd advise users to please, please look after your stuff. While yes this is a Beyblade tournament and we're not suggesting that any of us would attempt to take each other's stuff it is still happening at a public venue where other people (who may not be so friendly) are going to be present as well. Of course, if you see a personal belonging lying around bring it up any of the judges so we can return it to the right person. Your co-operation is appreciated!

All players must arrive on-time. The tournament will begin no later than 1:00 PM and is expected to run for about 3 hours, though if there is a large turnout it may take longer. Please plan accordingly. If you do not arrive at the scheduled start time, you risk being excluded from the tournament. The software we use to run our events–Challonge–does not allow us to add in extra participants once the tournament has started.

If you know in advance that you will be late, please post in this thread or contact someone at the event and depending on the circumstances we can perhaps still include you if we know you will arrive soon.

I don’t think they need judges. ‘Cause, I don’t think they have a million stadiums. People Who are more likely to be judges are: Angry Face, Yami, TSO, and beymaster15963.

On a side note, does anyone know if jackpotgodzilla is coming?

Seems like a tech support issue. What kind of device and browser did you try to open it in?

Unfortunately that didn't answer the question.

Is this an Android Phone or an iPhone?
What browser were you using within the phone to click the link? Was it Safari, Chrome, or something else?
Do you have Google Sheets app installed? It's a spreadsheet.

Maybe just look at it on an actual computer.
A friend's kid wants to join the tournament. Is there an age limit, and do they have to use their own WBO account?

There is no age limit for WBO Tournaments and they have to have a separate WBO account if they intend on participating.

The forecast is looking good for Sunday so currently there are no plans to reschedule. In general, I typically only consider rescheduling if the chance of rain is forecasted at 60% or more for that timeframe.

Me and deceased crab ????
If the organizing staff would like me to judge, sure. Personally I think it's useful to have one person doing organizing and calling out matchups and taking down match results, and having 4 judges who are focusing entirely on judging. It's always a bit hectic when the main organizer judges matches as well.

...or we could have ME calling out the matches and stadiums and recording the match results! I have a megaphone and a willingness to use it. Plus, I always wanted to be a game show host when I grew up, so I find that fun. Still, not my tournament, that's TSO's call. But I totally volunteer for it. I need the practice before October.

I don’t want anyone to feel pressured to judge, but we could definitely use a hand, DeceasedCrab! Would probably be good to have Hyper xeno or CheetoBlader get more experience judging as well but we’ll figure it out the day of based on interest Smile 

Yami is taking his sweet time, but hopefully he will have a thread up tomorrow for an unranked Standard tournament right after - we’ll be trialing the bring 3 choose 1 format proposal where you bring 3 beyblades to show your opponent and choose one to use for the match.
