WBO Melbourne Bladers: Hall of Fame

[Image: 2vilfv8.jpg]

Melbourne Hall of Fame

I decided to go through the history of the Melbourne Bladers recently and dissect as much information from them possible to create the Hall of Fame. I asked a lot of people to confirm a lot of the content in this thread.

Melbourne WBO Generation Key:
- First Generation: 2009 - April 2010
- Second Generation: May 2010 - April 2011
- Third Generation: May 2011 - April 2012
- Fourth Generation: May 2012 - April 2013
- Fifth Generation: May 2013 Onwards

Each member listed in the Hall of Fame is listed in WBO Register order/first appearance at a tournament, not in importance.

- Is the 2011 Victorian Beyblade Champion

- Relit his BeySpirit after many years on the same night as Omega, but was later to join the WBO. The two have bladed for years before the WBO days.

Wow! You have returned to the forums, what a surprise! Glad to have you back online. (This is Dragonsclaw for those who don't know!)

Also edited the news section in the OP!
It's kinda odd you revived this at a time when active bladers in Melbourne are so low that you couldn't even arrange anything for beydays.
Plenty of bladers in Melbourne who are ready for a tournament, just not active on the forums (like me). Whenever Omega hosts a tournament he gets the community going. (He's busy with school)

Edit: Edited the news section again! Also edited ZX's profile.
Really enjoying this thread Sam! Great job on the update...
Don't count me out just yet, I'm still in the game Tongue_out. Working on a tournament hopefully for these holidays. Other than that, I love the thread Sam; keeps things interesting.
