Some Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What should I do if I Pre-Register for a weight class and when I arrive the day of the event I am not the weight that I need to be?ANSWER – No problem, when you sign in, inform the person at the table that you need to be placed in a different weight class. That person will make the change and submit it into the system.

2. What will happen if I do not make weight right before my match?ANSWER – This is a more difficult problem. If someone in the above weight class that you NOW would be in does not make weight, then you will be inserted into their spot. If everybody in that weight class makes weight then you will be disqualified. There will be a scale placed by the door so that you may check your weight when you arrive so that you may check your weight to avoid this problem.

3. If I am competing in Gi and No-Gi do I have to weigh in on my first match both times?ANSWER – YES, but in future C3 competitions this will be changed.

4. Is there a weight allowance for the No-Gi Division?ANSWER – NO

5. I Pre-Registered, where and when do I get my T-Shirt?ANSWER – T-Shirts can be picked up at the event at the designated T-Shirt table. For competitors that did not Pre-Register, they may purchase T-Shirts at the same table.
