There will be athlete meetings with all competitors on the stage on Saturday November 5th to discuss the "T" walk and answer any other stage presentation questions. Please schedule tanning appointments around this especially if you will be using our tanning professional, Spray Tans by Maggie backstage that morning. Competitor's meeting is at 9am.
All competitors will do their T-walk or Routines at the beginning of the finals portion and will need to be no longer than 60 seconds in duration. Men’s Bodybuilding, Classic Physique and Women’s Physique competitors will need to designate to the DJ whether they will be walking on or will already be on stage when their music starts. All music needs to be sent via email in mp3 format. No music will be taken on the day of the contest. If it does not play you will have to pose to our music. Music can not contain any profanity. Costumes/props will be permitted but only if competitors can carry it on stage and it is in good taste. If a competitor chooses not to do a t-walk then he/she will just walk on stage after bio is read, do 1 pose and wave and walk off.
When competitors enter the stage individually at the finals portion of the program a “bio” will be read for each individual by the MC. This should include your name, and then something like your motivation, how long you have been competing and then something interesting about yourself and/or thanks to those who helped you along the way. An email with a bio form will be sent couple of weeks prior to show day.
