One assistant max per competitor is allowed backstage. The assistant must buy a trainer/assistant ticket, which is good for general admission and back stage access. If anyone is found backstage without a Trainer/Assistant's ticket, they will be escorted out of the building, will not be allowed to re-enter, and the competitor they were assisting will be disqualified from the contest.
Competitors must be fully covered if ever entering the auditorium seating area. Exposed body areas that can allow tanning agent to stain seating cloth is to be avoided (venue personnel will fine any violators, so be careful!). Food and drink will be sold at the concessions and are permitted in the theater. Please be respectful and dispose of your trash. Please show respect for the venue and promoter by taking precautions to remain on paper/plastic protected areas whenever tanning, oiling, or "pumping up". Do not stray beyond protected areas (again, venue personnel will fine any violators, so be careful!).
Competitors will be provided with two competitor number buttons at check-ins/polygraphs. One to be worn on the rear center of suit bottoms, the other should be worn on either the front left of suit bottoms, or, if in the Bikini category, on the side primarily displayed in your primary front pose, if different, to help judges keep track of individuals during scoring. When the head judge calls out contestant numbers and asks competitors to switch places on stage with another competitor during group comparisons, competitors should raise their hands so each contestant will be able to determine where they should go. Be sure to review applicable category guidelines on OCBonline.com to ensure awareness of judging criteria and proper form for mandatory poses for OCB contests. Competitors will need to show their competitor number buttons to door personnel in order to gain access to the back stage and auditorium areas (remember, contestants must be fully covered whenever entering the auditorium!). 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. 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's recommended that competitors arrive no later than 30 minutes before the final posted show starting time for their segment to allow enough time to get familiarized with the building layout and be ready before the planned start time. Polygraph testing and check-in tasks will both be done at the appointment time scheduled. The check-in tasks will consist of distributing competitor number buttons and any admission tickets purchased in advance, verifying current OCB memberships, 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 "X" place, they should move to where that corresponding number is on the floor to receive their trophy. Trophies should be placed on the floor in front of competitors so they are not being held when a photo opportunity for a 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 near the stage area after receiving their awards because they will be called out with other class winners for judging to determine divisions' overall winners. Winners of OCB Pro qualifying placements should stay close to the stage area after exiting for urine specimen collections. If anyone is found backstage who isn't a competitor, and who does not have a Trainer/Assistant's ticket, they will be escorted out of the building, will not be allowed to re-enter, and the competitor they were assisting will be disqualified from the contest.
