Lifter Registration (closes October 16th)
Hello Lifters! We are so excited for the first ever Viking Strength Sports Veterans Day Open. Thank you all for giving us the opportunity to provide this event for you.
Here are some important things for you to know:
FOR CHECK-IN: Have USAPL Membership Card ready to show (digital or hard copy) and your ID.
Masks are required at all times when in the USAPowerlifting area. This will be a distinct area with visual separation from the rest of the convention. Masks must be worn during warm-ups and during lifts on the platform. This is the rule from the USAPowerlifting National Office. No exceptions.
Check-Ins & Weigh-Ins will take place towards the back of Exhibit Hall A. Look for signs pointing you towards that area.
Lifting Cast does not currently reflect the correct flights and sessions. A few people have been moved around to keep within the numerical guidelines set for COVID. Keep your eyes peeled for an accurate roster on lifting cast within the next 24 hours.
