Template for Meet Results
The new version of Next Lifter scoring program by Joe Marksteiner is the standard to use in all OPA meets. There are 2 versions, one with a clock and one without a clock. There is also a link with a list of all registered teams that can be used with standard naming to help with publishing results and for calculating Team Awards and yearly best team for the AGM.
The Website publishing of results will be based on the Next Lifter Program. If you are not using this program, you need to submit all results on a results template provided above. The reason for this is consistency in how data is published, and for consistency in data to work with records.
OPA Competition Set – In September 2015, the OPA purchased a competition set that can be rented by clubs who are new to running meets. As the purchase of competition equipment can be expensive, we have this set available until you are able to purchase your own set.
Our competition set includes:
- Titan Plates (362.5kg)
- Titan bar/collars
- ER Competition Rack
- Wired lights
- Deadlift jack
- Plate stands
- 8′ x 8′ platform (4 sheets of 3/4″ plywood, black carpet and red perimeter frame)
- Optoma projector with vga connection
Rental Fees & Deposit
Rental Fee: $75.00
Refundable Damage Deposit $500.00
There is no set rental period. It will be agreed upon at the time of rental. A standard may be picking the set up the weekend prior to the meet and returning it the weekend following. The damage deposit will be refunded in full if the equipment is returned in the condition it went out. This is similar to renting any piece of equipment and is to ensure that careful use is maintained.
