*ADDITIONAL*
Competition Secretary has the final say on how format on the day runs.
Lifters wanting to lift equipped, may guest at almost any raw comp if there is space, however there will not be best lifter trophies unless there are 3 total equipped lifters of the same gender.
I.E 3 Males lifting Equipped, there will be a best lifter, 1 Male and 2 Females lifting equipped, no best lifter.
The lack of wholly equipped competitions is a reflection on its popularity in the membership. As mentioned above, lifting as a guest in any competition is technically possible based on space.
(Guests may record a total but are not actively competing against any other lifters. They can still achieve Qualifying Totals, and relevant records, assuming it’s a valid attempt, see record guidelines page)
If equipped lifting increases in popularity, there will be added medals and class trophies for their categories as/when the need arises.
