The 2nd and 3rd place finishers get free entries into the preliminary rounds at the other gyms. On the day of finals at Inner Peaks, there will be an AM preliminary round at Inner Peaks. The top six male and female competitors will then pass on to the final afternoon round. Prizes will be $500 for 1st, $300 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd.
New Recreational and Intermediate Format: All three competitions will have Recreational and Intermediate divisions as well as the Open. All competitors in these divisions will receive a goody bag of small prizes plus an entry into a raffle for the big prizes.
