[Toronto, Ontario 04/06/14] – Beys of Glory 2 and A YEAR: The
Month of Rebirth!

[Image: jgZh9Cf.jpg]



Beys of Glory 2 &


A YEAR:
The Month of Rebirth


Sunday, April 6th, 12PM



High Park – Toronto, Ontario,
Canada




Standard and Limited format

After missing the last few month’s tournaments due to weather
and venue issues, we’re back! In the past, Toronto’s spring
tournaments have been proven to attract many bladers, so be ready
to battle! I will be hosting the Standard format tournament (Beys
of Glory 2) whilst Pockyx3 will hold the Limited format tournament
(The Month of Rebirth)! Assuming we have enough attendees, this
will be an official WBO tournament, so make sure to get your

Blader Passport
for $10 if you haven’t done so already! Or, simply pay $5
if you plan on only attending
The Month of Rebirth. However, if
you wish to join both tournaments without purchasing the passport
for some reason, it will cost $10.


Location:


We’ll be playing in the shelter where we usually play. If
you’re coming to High Park via the
Bloor entrance, just follow
that road down on the right side and you’ll see the large
building/shelter on the left hand side before you reach the tennis
courts. In case you guys haven’t been to our regular tournaments,
here are some visual directions.


Directions

(Click to View)


Format:
We will be using both Standard format and Limited format
for this tournament.


Time:
The Limited tournament (Beys of Glory 2) will start at
approximately 12 PM, while the Standard tournament (A Year: The
Month of Rebirth) will start at approximately 2-3 PM.


Side Note:
Guys, please,
please look after your
stuff. While yes this is a Beyblade tournament and I’m 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 to me or one
of the other judges so we can return it to the right person. Your
co-operation is appreciated!

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

We’re keeping Toronto’s bey-spirit alive, your support thus
far is appreciated! Let’s keep this up guys! If you wish to attend
please post below, I’ll start gathering an attendance list.

Entry: You need an AN Pass!



A
Blader Passport is not required for this
tournament, as AN does not allow event organizers to charge entry
fees for events within the convention. However, if you want to
support the WBO so we can host even better tournaments with even
better prizes in the future, and participate in the BeyPoints
ranking System in future tournaments, then you will need one! So,
if you wish to purchase one at the tournament, that is still
possible.

To participate in the tournament, you currently have a few
options to gain entrance: a) a weekend pass or b) a day pass for
Saturday at AN.

. Please note that children (ages 6-13) are admitted for
half price.

This year will mark the tenth AN tournament since the
original GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT at Anime North 2005. The fact that
we’re all here to recognize this anniversary of sorts can only be a
testament to the collective passion we all share for this game, and
more importantly, to the longevity and resolution of this community
to move forward in the face of uncertainty. Additionally, the new
Limited Format is the best recent examples of this, and that’s why
it has been chosen as the format for the championship this year.
It’s something we alone created as a community, and it’s something
we will watch and help grow as time passes, all as a result of our
own will and determination.

Many people have come and gone since that day at Anime North
2005 almost ten years ago, but what hasn’t changed, and what won’t
change–unless we let it–is the tradition. Regardless of who attends
each year and who doesn’t, the experience of meeting Bladers from
across North America–and the world–each year is absolutely
unforgettable, inspiring, and special. As an organization who’s
very existence is so deeply rooted in the idea of competitive play
and interacting with others, I have always found it hard to think
of anything else which embodies what the WBO is about more than the
AN weekend every year. Wherever you are, if you have the chance to
attend, take it. And with that said …

If you think you’ll be able to make it out to GRAND BATTLE
TOURNAMENT 2, please post here and I will start building an
attendance list!
