We can't wait to see you on the platform!
Soak Up the Sun!

Due to Michigan Governor Whitmer's recent executive order limiting indoor gatherings to no more than 10 people, we will have our lifting platforms outdoors, weather permitting, with canopies for shade. Warmups will still be held inside the venue. Chairs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own canopies if you like!
Final Flight Assignments

Please note that this event now will only have 1 session, with 2 flights. All lifters must show to the venue before 7:00am.

Click below to see the current flights.
Weigh Ins

Weigh ins will be conducted in order by lot number. We will not weigh in athletes on a first come, first serve basis. Please arrive before 7:00am to be ready to weigh in when your name is called. If you are not present at this time, you will be moved to the bottom of the list. Click below to see order of weigh ins.
Spectators & Coaches

To keep total attendance low, we are asking that athletes only bring up to 2 total people with them. This means that a lifter can bring 2 spectators,  OR  1 coach/handler and 1 spectator. No athlete can have more than 1 coach/handler with them in the warm up area. No credentials will be required for coach verification. Edge Fitness will be selling spectator passes for $5.
