There will be no early check in on Friday. All lifters should arrive to the venue at 6:30am on Saturday, September 12.
September 12 (SATURDAY):
7:00am SHARP – Weigh-Ins
7:00am-8:30am – Check-In
– Equipment Check
– Rack Heights
8:30am – Rules Meeting
9:00am – Lifting Begins
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.
Weigh Ins will be conducted at 7:00am SHARP on Saturday morning (September 12). We recommend showing up around 6:30 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.
To keep total attendance low, we are asking that athletes only bring up to 2 total people with them. This means that a lifter can bring 2 spectators, OR 1 coach/handler and 1 spectator. No athlete can have more than 1 coach/handler with them in the warm up area. No credentials will be required for coach verification. Wholistic Revolution will be selling spectator passes for $5.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
