Finals are scheduled for 4 PM, however, we hope to start by 3:45 PM, so don’t stray too far. All competitors must return to the backstagearea of the South Hall no later than 3 PM.
We have very tight time constraints; the contest is just one of numerous events taking place that day and we will be sharing space with other programs. It is critical that all competitors are where they should be at the time they are expected. Remember, you’ve worked hard to get to this point and you don’t want to miss your stage time.
Drug testing will be random polygraph testing during and after prejudging. You will be notified during prejudging if you are selected to take the test. Each test will take approximately 30 minutes. All results are final.
NPC cards ($100) can be purchased at check-ins; cash or check only.
Only competitors and staff are allowed backstage.
Competitors will receive a badge with a green dot, allowing entrance into the Fit Expo and the backstage area. You must wear it at all times, except when on stage. You will also be given one wrist band for a guest, which is good for Saturday, January 28.
