Additional Details

Competitors must be fully covered whenever in the theatre seating area. Exposed body area that can allow tanning agent to stain seating cloth is to be avoided.

Please show respect for the venue and promoters by taking care to keep on paper/plastic protected areas for tanning, oiling, and pumping up. Do not stray beyond protected areas.

Alcohol is not permitted on the premises.

Competitors will have two number buttons – one to be worn front left, other rear center, to help judges keep track of individuals during scoring.

If the head judge calls your number asking you to switch places on stage with another competitor during group comparisons, raise your hands so each person knows where they need to go.

Be sure to review the guidelines on OCBonline.com for your category prior to the event and view the poses that will be called during group comparisons.

Competitors must show their competitor number buttons to event staff in order to gain access to the back stage and auditorium areas.

There will be expediters back stage who will be advising competitors when they should be getting ready and when they should be getting lined up to go out on stage.

For group comparisons, competitors will line up near the front of the stage where a line of tape will be.

The facility will be accessible any time after 9:00 AM the day of the show.  It is recommended competitors arrive no later than 30 minutes before the show’s start time to allow enough time to get familiarized with the building layout and be ready before the start time.

Polygraph testing and check-in tasks will both be done at the appointment time you scheduled the day before the show. The check-in tasks will consist of distributing competitor number buttons, any admission tickets purchased in advance, verifying current OCB memberships, and turning in photo order forms (if applicable).

For awards presentations there will be numbers 1 through 5 taped to the stage floor. They represent placements. When a competitor is announced as winning “X” place, they should move to where that number is on the floor to receive their trophy. Trophies should be placed on the floor in front of competitors so they are not being held when a photo opportunity group pose is requested after all placements have been awarded for the class. For divisions that have more than one class, class winners should stay close after receiving their award because they will be called out with the other class winners for judging to determine division overall winners.

Winners of OCB Pro qualifying placements and the top 3 pros should stay close after going off stage for urine specimen collections.

If anyone is found backstage who isn’t a competitor, and who does not have a Trainer/Assistant’s ticket, they will be escorted out of the building, will not be allowed to re-enter, and the competitor they were assisting will be disqualified from the contest.
