As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

Ron Villani has again come to the rescue, one more judge needed. Two of the regular judges have had to say no this time for various reasons. Time for another e-mail or two, let's see if we can get this puppy into the judging phase tomorrow or so. Smiley

The meet has been released!

I love the typical English backdrop, wish we had "Outdoor Lifter" badges. Also, congrats to Patrick Furphy for completing his first virtualmeet. Strong lifting, but unfortunately your attempts had to be red lighted this time for lack of shoes as required per the rules. Hope to see you back with a vengeance. Smiley

Thanks to both lifters and judges for making another meet happen. This will mark a small break from the weightlifting meets, if the current 2010 meet schedule draft passes, we'll be back in action in April. We'll be beating the jungle drums hard for that one.

Bah! We were hoping you wouldn't notice. Pat came round with flip-flops. Would those have counted?

I never lifted in shoes until I joined Virtualmeet!

Sounds like we need to start taking RAW more seriously. Wink

Obviously, nobody here seriously thinks Pat got any advantage going barefoot. And flip-flops? Now, that would have been hardcore.

The point is rather that when creating Virtualmeet, I made the principal decision to try to stick to the official rules of weightlifting and powerlifting to the degree feasible when arranging meets over the internet. We've had lifters begin their competitive career by doing virtualmeets to get them familiar with the game, and from that perspective it really helps to keep the rules closely aligned with the official ones. I also tend to think it helps with street/net cred.

But it's never pleasant to turn down otherwise stellar lifts due to nitty gritties like not wearing proper footwear. I particularly remember Claudia Gerhards squat 110kg@58.1kg... in socks (she had forgot her shoes at home). On the bright side, you tend to make a mistake like that only once. Smiley

Yeah, for some reason long pants are harder to spot than bare feet...  Roll Eyes

Yes, that and the springs.
