Do not stray beyond protected areas.Alcohol is not permitted on the premises.Competitors will have two number buttons - one to be worn front left*, other rear center, to help judges keep track of individuals during scoring (*for Bikini, competitor numbers on the front should be placed on the side that will be more directly facing the judges the majority of the time, so if your primary front pose is with your right hip facing more forward, wear your button on the right side instead of the left).If the head judge calls your number asking you to switch places on stage with another competitor during group comparisons, raise your hands so each person knows where they need to go. Be sure to review the guidelines on OCBonline.com for your category prior to the event and view the poses that will be called during group comparisons, as well a description of the path that is to be followed for the stage walks.Competitors must show their competitor number buttons to event staff in order to gain access to the back stage and auditorium areas.There will be expediters back stage who will be advising competitors when they should be getting ready and when they should be getting lined up to go out on stage.For group comparisons, competitors will line up near the front of the stage where a line of tape will be.There will be large X's on the stage to mark where pausing points should be for stage walks. There will be one on rear stage center, one on front stage left, one on front stage center, and one on front stage right. These marks are positioned to be where the best lighting is. Tip: When doing walks face inward toward the middle of the audience at the side X's so the crowd and photographer gets a better view of your physique.The facility will be accessible any time after 8:30 AM the day of the show. It is recommended competitors arrive no later than 30 minutes before the show's start time to allow enough time to get familiarized with the building layout and be ready before the start time.There will be flyers for other area OCB shows at check-ins and in the lobby the day of the show. If you are able to take copies and post those at the gym you go to it would be greatly appreciated.Polygraph testing and check-in tasks will both be done at the appointment time you scheduled. The check-in tasks will consist of distributing competitor number buttons and any advance tickets purchased, and turning in photo order forms (if applicable). For awards presentations there will be numbers 1 through 5 taped to the stage floor. They represent placements. When a competitor is announced as winning a place, they should move to where that number is on the floor to receive their trophy. Trophies should be placed on the floor in front of competitorís so they are not being held when a photo-op group pose is requested after all placements have been awarded for the class. For divisions that have more than one class, class winners should stay close after receiving their award because they will be called out with the other class winners for judging to determine division overall winners.
