Flight Assignments & Weigh In Order

The Flight Assignments are in! This meet will have 2 flights, Flight A and Flight B. Flight A lifters will step on the platform first, going through all of their squat attempts before Flight B begins their squats. After Flight B finishes their squats, we will move back to Flight A for bench press. The same will be done for deadlifts. It is your responsibility to be aware of your flight. This will not change before meet day. Click the link below to see your flight assignment and weigh in order.

Weigh Ins will be conducted at 8:00am SHARP on Saturday morning (September 26). We recommend showing up around 7:30 to prepare. Lifters will be called in order by lot number for weigh ins (not first come, first serve). If you are not present when your name is called, you will be moved to the bottom of the list and called again when all other lifters have weighed in.

IMPORTANT: Please have your 1st attempts with you during weigh ins. 1st attempts must be in KILOGRAMS. A conversion chart will be provided.


Please wear a mask (or face shield)!

All participants for this event MUST wear a mask at all times. Exceptions will not be made for anybody in attendance. You are responsible for bringing your own mask. Coaches and spectators also must bring and wear their own masks. Your mask must:

  • Fully cover your mouth AND NOSE
  • Fit snugly on your face, showing no gaps

Other mask information:

  • Your mask must not be shared with anyone else
  • Your mask can be secured (with tape) so that it does not slide into your eyes
  • Face Shields are also permitted so long as they cover the entire face
  • Cloth masks and even large headbands can be used if they follow the above guidelines
  • Masks can only be removed while eating or drinking

NOTE: If you are not comfortable with wearing a mask or face shield on meet day, please email me at gina.hensley@calloso.com to request a meet credit for a later date. Showing up on the day of the event and refusing to wear a mask will result in removal from the venue, and no refunds will be given.

Weight Class Changes & Withdrawals:

If you need to change your weight class or division before the meet, please do so by sending us an email at gina.hensley@calloso.com. To ensure that you are placed in the same flight as your competitors, you must do this by  Saturday, September 12. Changes can be submitted after this, but your flight will not change.

If you would like to transfer to another event or withdraw from the meet, you can also send us an email. If you are uncomfortable with following the social distancing guidelines such as wearing a mask at all times and maintaining 6 feet distance, we recommend taking a meet credit for an event in the future when these guidelines are no longer in place.  Please keep in mind that absolutely no refunds will be issued so long as this event is not cancelled.

Technical Rules:

This meet will follow the technical rules found in the USA Powerlifting rulebook. You can find the rulebook here.

There will be a minimum of 10% of participants will be drug tested via urinalysis. For more information on anti-doping or to look up prescriptions and supplements, visit USA Powerlifting’s anti-doping page.
