Schedule for the 2015 NO GI REGIONALS 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 double elimination.
Please submit all change requests by 5pm Friday 6th November. If you are on this list, and you cannot compete, you must let us know by 5pm Friday otherwise you are still liable for the registration fee. Email email@example.com or text 0212953458 for change requests. All payments done at the event will be $80 for adults and $70 for kids, no exceptions.
SATURDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 2015 – North Shore Event Centre
8-9 am Weigh In KIDS
10am -12:30pm 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 Sunday 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 ADVANCED (7 min matches, IBJJF Brown-Black belt rules)
1:30-3 pm INTERMEDIATE (6 min matches, IBJJF Blue-Purple belt rules)
3-5:30pm BEGINNERS compete (5 min matches, IBJJF White belt rules)
All divisions are Double elimination, which guarantees 2 matches in your weight division. No Absolute division will be offered due to time constraints of double elimination.
Here are the sample bracket sheets for Double Elimination:
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.
