ALL COMPETITORS NEED TO MAKE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE FOR ALL 3 DAYS OF THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS INCLUDING:

 WEIGH IN - OPENING CEREMONY -DAY ONE - DAY TWO - FINAL DAY 

 

EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE WHEN AND WHICH AREA YOU WILL BE COMPETING IN

It is anticipated that all rule sets will feature ALL days of the competition and some categories will span both days while some will start and finish on the same day dependant of the size of entries per division.

As this is a World Championships and not a National Championships consideration must be given to the time it will take to run such an event.

We appreciate each and everyone of you and are proud to have you all as a part of not only our history but out future too.
