2012 KING of BTB TOURNAMENT
OFFICIAL SIGN-UP THREAD
Suddenly, the house lights at ringside go out. The fans in the arena have gone practically silent, and their attention turns to the titantron where a rather light-hearted video package has started.

Ladies and Gentlemen of WF’s Be The Booker Section;
You are hereby cordially invited to participate in the pinnacle of writing competitions for our kind; a gathering of all the gifted keystrokers this quaint section shelters, and a true test of your determination, talent, and overall booking potential. This kingdom of creative minds needs a new king… are you up for the challenge?
Ha! All jokes aside though friends, we’ve been talking about it for some days now and it’s come time to pull the trigger. Ladies and gents, the 2012 King of BTB Tournament! Before we can begin the tournament, we’ll need some bookers bold enough to participate!
» Sign ups will go for ONE WEEK, so on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd
, sign-ups for the tournament will be closed
» There is no limit to how many people can sign up. However, we encourage you to be honest with yourself before you jump in. We understand that everyone has their own personal lives to tend to. In saying that, if you KNOW you will not be able to keep up with your responsibilities as a participant in this tournament; don’t sign up, simple as that. We would like to prevent no-shows and have this tournament go as smoothly as possible.
» We will sift through the signees with the opening rounds. All bookers that sign up will compete in the opening rounds to determine who will compete in the actual competition. After these qualifiers, the top EIGHT writers will advance to the tournament.
» This will be stated again when the tournament thread is up, but it needs to be said now as well – PLAGIARISM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
. If you are reported or caught copying another writer’s work – be it opening round or later in the competition, you will be immediately disqualified. Also, no work from previous/current BTB threads. Create your own, new material, please.
» Yes, this is a competition; but keep in mind we are all a family of creative writers. We come from all over the world, some of us speak many languages, and ALL of us have different amounts of experience and levels of creative ‘thunder’, if you will. In saying this, please be respectful of your fellow bookers. Of course, you may help each other with constructive criticism, but bashing also will not
be tolerated. We are promoting good sportsmanship in this tournament – and besides, it’s the judges call as to whats ‘good’ or not – not yours.
» Speaking of judges, Brye and myself (KingRo™) will be manning the ‘judges table’, along with a select few others. If you are interested in being a judge, either note this in your sign up post or contact Brye.
With all of that said, let the sign ups begin!!
