No Bey? No Prob!
Don't have any Beyblades from this series? No problem! We would be happy to lend a Beyblade and launcher to you to use for the duration of the event!

Side Notes
Please 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: 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.


All questions for this tournament may be asked in this thread!

I am going to confirm the location next  month
On the 2

It will probably be at Sheraton
You really need to make this official and change the location in the description... then blast it to everyone to make it stick.

Don't you think you should take it upon yourself to look up and visit the location to see? Or at least call the hotel and make sure yourself and look up the hotel online at the very least.

I didn't reserve a room... they are letting its use common space near the cafe (which closes at 11am on Saturday)  I will be there before 11am and help you setup.   Did you not visit the hotel yet?  Regardless it's a nice place and I may be able to sweet talk us into a room if they have one available?   We shall see Saturday.   At least we will be warm!!

Dont take this the wrong way, read this with thick skin, this is soley constructive criticism, but you really should have been a bit more prepared for this, if you knew you were going to be busy and not have the proper time to prepare an event that people are going to want to come back to, you should have allotted for the time that you needed based on your priorities before beyblade. A venue is one of the most important things when holding an event. Most events take around 5-6hrs to do, and its winter, the majority of players are young and require having their parents there with them. If I were a parent and my kid wanted to go to a beyblade tournament at a park in the middle of winter, itd be a flat out no for me. Not because i personally would hate to sit out in the cold all those hours, but also because i wouldnt want my child out in that weather. I said all of that to say im probably not the only person to think this way and thats really going to hurt your numbers and your returning crowd. As host you are soley responsible for everyone having an enjoyable time. Its not an easy task, and shouldnt be taken lightly. I have faith in you and look forward to being able to attend one of your events in the near future. Good luck on saturday!

Thanks I know I'll try best for this. I know parents don't like there kids be out in the cold. That's why I am trying my best to look for a warm place.
We will make this event a good one... Do not worry. I've Organized for Wizards of the Coast and at GenCon in Indy... I am not concerned - this event will be great!
When we arrive Saturday morning we ask for Lana Turner - She will unlock the "Turin Room" for us to play in!!!!!! The Sheraton is offering a room that is unused as a sign of "Good Faith". WhooHoo!!

Please be sure to correct my name in the Tourney... I was entered incorrectly during the event.
Beyblader 5372 - I do not see where ChimeraBurst and my names have been switched from your first tournament? Please be sure to correct this information - he made top 4 and doesn't have credit for it?
