Regents Rumble

In the same style as SummerSmash, (for those of you that managed to attend) we'll be running a tournament on September 12th in Regents Park.
The location will also be the same, Ready Money Drinking Fountain.
For those of you that had any trouble finding it last time, PM us the day before the event, and we'll provide you wth a mobile numbe so you can call us for directions if necessary.
The tournament style will be block round robin, since this worked well at the last event.

The meeting time will be 12pm, and the tournament should start at 1pm.

The main tournament will be MFB only, but free battles will allow plastic and HMS as usual.

Items we'd recomend for you to bring would include food and drink for yourself, a hooded coat or jacket in case of rain, or suntan lotion if the day seems particularly hot.

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

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 leant to people have either come back damaged from improper use, or not come back at all.
Obviously this has mde 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.

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

Just like to say i lost a lightlauncher ripcord and a Metal Face, (havent searched for the MF) but i think i lost it on my journey home D:

if anyone has it...nah forget it xP
People really need to start taking better care of their stuff, particularly not leaving things on the floor in/between battles.
Every time we have an event, we always see peoples blades, and other parts just left unattended on the floor.
If you do leave things lying around, you will end up loosing them, especially with small parts like metal faces that just get wedged in to the grass.
I'd recommend that anyone who comes to future events follows the two following rules

1) Keep an eye on your things, if you have a toolbox or carry case when you aren't using a blade, put it away.
2) Use a tipex, or a silver permanent marker to put your initials or username on the underside of all launcher ripcords that you own.

I'll be adding both bits of advise to any future events.
