Show Start TIme: 10:00 a.m.
The schedule of events will take place over segments to help ease flow of foot traffic over the course of the day, and to help with spectators planning to attend the event. At this point we only know when the show will start, 1 week out of the show an email will be sent to all competitors with the start times. Should showtimes posted at that time for various segments not run as long as anticipated, subsequent segments will not be started prior to the final advertised starting time (for purposes of attendee planning). Should showtimes posted for various segments run longer than anticipated, subsequent segments may not begin until a little later than the final advertised times.

A roster with assigned competitor numbers and class breakdowns will be emailed to competitors approximately one week before the show. This information will not be available until after all of the registrations are in and the promoter has had time to sort the classes.
A crossover entry is entering more than one division within a category. For example, someone may enter the Novice division, if eligible, and also elect to crossover into the Open division and compete in it as well.

COMPETITOR PREP AREA
Please take extra precautions to care for the venue and keep it as clean as possible. Do NOT touch the walls and do NOT stray from protected areas. Mirrors will be available. Athletes will need to bring their own equipment to pump-up.
VIDEO RECORDING POLICY
Competitors and friends/family are welcome to bring cameras and recording devices. Please remember to tag Official OCB on social media!
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. Food and drink will be sold at the concessions and are not 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.
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 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 boxes 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 boxes so the crowd and photographer gets a better view of your physique. The facility will be accessible any time after 9:00 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
