Brickhouse Entries Final List

Here is the final list for the entries to the 2017 Brickhouse Power Challenge next Saturday. As yet another reminder…..those athletes who have not completed the online CCES training you will NOT be able to compete unless you have done so and present your printed Certificate to the Referees at weigh ins with your CPU card and Photo ID.
Also, I noticed that some people who have entered are not CPU/MPA members. To quote the egg commercial, “Get Crackin”!! You can not lift if you are not a member.

Here are the Weigh in lists that will be posted up at the event. Please be aware that Flights A & B & C (The Benchpress) are weighing in at 08:00. Flights D & E will be weighing in at 12:00 pm (Noon).

This is a big event for us so come prepared. I.E. – You must have your CPU Card and Photo ID, fill out the Athlete Weigh In document as it makes things go much quicker. If you do not have it completed you will go to the end of the line.

For the Equipment Check – All equipment used on the platform must be on the IPF approved list. It must be clean and you need underwear without a leg (“tighty whiteys”), knee high socks, singlet and a PLAIN T-shirt. A MPA or CPU shirt are acceptable.

You MUST know your attempts in Kilograms. Download a conversion chart or print one off so you are prepared.

Remember to be respectful, lift well and have fun!!
