Schedule for the 2015 GI NATIONALS AUCKLAND is now ready to review. We will follow the Bullpen format for weigh ins. Weigh ins for adults will occur when the division is called to the bullpen. Once in the bullpen, competitors are NOT allowed to leave until they have completed competing in their division. We will have the order of the division call out and mat assignment posted Saturday morning at the event. All divisions will be single elimination, with a deciding match for 3rd place. Three person division will be modified round robin where the loser of the first match goes against the 3rd person to determine the other finalist.
8-9 am Weigh In KIDS
10am – 12:30 pm KIDS compete (3 min matches)
For adults, all weigh ins are done when each belt’s weight class is called. All competitors of a weight division will be called up at once for weigh ins and uniform check. The order of running brackets will be posted Saturday morning at the event. Once weighed in, you are NOT allowed to leave the bullpen area. If you do not weigh in when called to the bullpen, you will be disqualified after about 5 minutes of calling your division up.
12:30-1:30 pm ADULT BLACK (10 min matches), MASTERS BLACK (6 min matches), ADULT BROWN (8 min matches), MASTERS BROWN (6 min matches), ADULT PURPLE (7 min matches)
1:30-3:00 pm ADULT BLUE (6 min matches), MASTERS BLUE (5 min matches)
3:00-5:30 pm ADULT WHITE (5 min matches), MASTERS WHITE (5 min matches)
We have merged some of the Master’s weight classes, so please double check if your division has been merged.
Adults must check in after 9am but BEFORE their posted division start time. Check in ensures you have paid and qualifies you for the bullpen weigh in when your division is called. Remember you do not weigh in when you check in. You weigh in only when your division is called to the bullpen. The division start time are approximate times in which those divisions will begin. The mat assignment of each division and the order in which the divisions will be run on the mat will be posted on the wall at the event. Pay attention to the division being called to the bullpen or the match # being run on the scoreboard of your mat. This will help you understand what division is currently being processed, and help you determine when your weight division will be called next to the bullpen.
