PLEASE READ: COVID EVENT ARRANGEMENTS
THIS HAS NOW BEEN MOVED TO THE WEEKEND OF THE 21 and 22 MAY AS PER THE ADVISORY BELOW!!!!!!! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ARRANGEMENTS!
Below is the original wording of the entry form.
Everyone is being asked to fill this in - even if you already have an Alan Collins Cup entry.
The event is being held at Bodypower Expo at the NEC. Atheletes with an entry do not require a ticket for entry but thier coaches and spectators will.
Due to the current uncertain COVID situation we are advising that no one buys coach tickets or entry tickets yet until mass events are confirmed as going ahead in May.
In the event that Bodypower cannot run as a mass event, we have booked the Pendulum Hotel in Manchester the following weekend and ALL entries and the competition will be moved there. Therefore we advise all hotel bookings are FLEXIBLE and NOT prepaid until we are certain where this will run. All entries are diectly to us - NOT to Bodypower and into a bank account.
THIS HAS NOW BEEN MOVED TO THE PENDULUM HOTEL MANCHESTER!!!!
The bomb squad is a specialist class ONLY run by the A/BPU. It is a normal equipped only bench only specialist flight with the emphasis on lifters going for numbers in the true fashion of equipped lifting where they may bomb. This is a no judgement environment where lifters can try out new kit or get valuable platform time in a competition enviroment and take risks on thier numbers amongst other equipped lifters. The difference is that the A/BPU recognises unlimited band shirts, which the A/WPC does not. Therefore, if you can beat a British record in an unlimited shirt it will be recorded as well as recorded in the unlimited section in Open Powerlifting. However, unlimited band shirt users, will not be able to take A/WPC reocrds - as they are not a recognised category in the A/WPC.
For those using single and mutiply shirts - you are able to qualify for World Championships 2022 and take British, European and World records at this competition and GO FOR IT!
The overall winner of the Bomb Squad is based on points which include gender and age points - so its anyone's guess!
The top 3 in all classes apart form unlimted will qualify to represent Great Britain at the AWPC or WPC World Championships 2022.
ALAN COLLINS CUP ENTRIES
