Dear Prospective USBF Competitor, On behalf of East Coast Power, I would like to thank you for considering the USBF York County Classic 2016 Fitness Championships held on November 12th. The contest will be held at West York Area Middle School (see the directions below). For those of you that want to stay at a nearby hotel, here is information on the Event Hotel:

Advanced tickets purchases can be pick-up at the ticket table with ID one hour before the start of the show. EXCEPT FOR THE EARLY-BIRD SPECIAL, THERE WILL BE NO OTHER DISCOUNTS (I.E.., SENIOR CITIZENS, STUDENTS, AND CHILDREN) OFFERED AT THE DOOR. Seating is limited and we don’t guarantee seating except for those who pay in advance. This is a drug-tested contest and urinalysis is the testing method. The USBF has adopted the IOC’s Anabolic Steroid Banned Substance List that includes related substances such as Andro (converts to testosterone) and 19-Nor (converts to Nandrolone). The fact that a substance is sold over-the-counter does not automatically make it acceptable for drug tested competition. As a competitor that chooses to compete in drug tested competition, you are responsible for being knowledgeable about the supplements that you consume. EPHEDRINE IS FORMALLY BANNED BY THE USBF SCHEDULE: Saturday, Nov. 12th: Check-In 8:00am-9:00am (YOU MUST BE AT THE SHOW NO LATER THAN 8:00AM!!!); Mandatory Contestant Meeting 9:00am; Judges Meeting: 9:30am; Prejudging: 10:00AM. Contestant Check-in: 3:15PM, Finals: 4pm. BANNED: THE USE OF PAM SPRAY AND OIL-BASED AEROSOLS ARE BANNED BY THE USBF. MUSIC: NO PROFANITY. Be prepared to turn in your music during registration. Music must be no longer than 90 seconds, CD only, and your music must the only music on the CD. The CD must be properly formatted and FINALIZED. SUITS: No T-Back or G-String suits are permitted. JEWELRY: Excessive jewelry is not permitted. Chains linking body-piercing jewelry are not permitted. Modest earrings are acceptable. MsUSBF Figure/Bikini: MsUSBF Figure / Bikini requirements can be found on the Rules page at www.USBF.net. PHYSIQUE: Male & Female Physique requirements can be found on the Rules page at www.USBF.net. DEBUT: Open to “1ST Time” contestants only. NOVICE: Open to contestants that never won 1st in open competition or an Overall Novice title, regardless of the organization. PROPS: The USBF allows limited use of props. A contestant must be capable of bringing it on stage as well as removing it. CROSS-OVERS: A cross-over is a competitor that entered more than one class. There is no crossing over between figure, bikini, and bodybuilding. You can only cross-over within a division. For example, a figure competitor can enter as many figure classes as she likes, but that same figure competitor can’t cross-over into bodybuilding or bikini. The only exception to this is that Physique competitors can crossover into Bodybuilding and vice versa. There is risk associated with crossing over. If the scoring is very close, it would only take one judge changing his score to move you below someone you beat earlier in another class. If this is something that you may have a problem with, I strongly suggest that don’t cross-over.
