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.

This thread is to sign-up for the 4-6 December 2009 Bench Press meet only. Questions and comments concerning this meet should be posted in the discussion thread.

The deadline for lifters to sign up is Friday November 27th at 10pm GMT; after this date, only judge sign-ups will be accepted.

To register for the meet, just post a short reply to this message. This implies that you:
  • HAVE READ AND ACCEPTED THE RULES (the LATEST version of the rules!)
  • AFFIRM YOUR DRUG-FREE STATUS (again, see the rules)
  • REALLY AIM AT DOING THE MEET, not just thinking about it. Of course, injuries and life can happen, so you are naturally free to cancel your entry if needed.
 

Also include which day you want to lift on. This day can be changed up until the sign-up deadline.

** 4th is on a Friday
** 5th is on a Saturday
** 6th is on a Sunday

Further instructions on how to submit the video footage etc. will be sent out via e-mail to all participants after the sign-up deadline has passed.

Those who wish to judge should also sign-up in this thread.

To make sure that you don't forget anything essential, we highly recommend using the checklist as a supplement to the rules.

Good luck!  Smiley

NOTE: This is the last meet of the year. We'll be back on February 12-14th with a deadlift only meet.

Hey Shawn, welcome to the meet. Smiley

Just let us know on what day you plan to lift on (4-6th). You should be able to edit your post; if not just, post below. You can change the lifting date up until the registration closes. The idea behind this is that, like in an official meet, come meet day you either do or die.

What do you do if your newspaper only comes out once a week? I live in a small town of 4,500 people and our paper only comes out every Tuesday. Also, I just got activated so I am still trying to figure things about. GREAT WEBSITE!!!!

Hey Ben, a warm welcome to Virtualmeet and especially to the bench meet. Smiley If you have any questions about the meet or the site in general, don't hesitate to post in the meet discussion thread or send me a PM or e-mail at kris@virtualmeet.net.

Regarding the newspaper, the first thing that springs to mind is to ask whether you have any non-local papers available closer to the meet? Obviously, it would be totally unreasonable to not be able to compete due to the unavailability of a newspaper so if nothing else is available use the paper dated closest to the meet and include a note about this when submitting the lifter info (you will get a separate e-mail about how this works closer to the meet).

Leaving 2009 with a bang! Last meet of the year and great to see more new faces join the fun. Have a great meet everyone and remember to let me know if you have any questions!

We're still missing two judges one judge, if anyone is interesting in giving it a go, please e-mail me at kris@virtualmeet.net. This is a smaller meet so the workload is very light. As usual, if we don't have three judges come meet time, I'll go out and find them. Smiley
