Wednesday, April 8, 7:30pm. This conference will take place at the competition venue. An athlete may at the technical conference increase or decrease his or her weight class. A lifter may increase weight class after the technical conference but MUST report to the weigh-in for the lower weight class in order to change upward. If there are any questions about this ruling, please contact the meet director or your National Masters chairman.
Schedule and Start List
The preliminary schedule and preliminary start list are now available on the Masters Weightlifting web site. Note that times are subject to change until the Technical Conference on Wednesday evening, April 8. Thanks to the tremendous number of new masters lifting this year, the days on which each age group will lift has shifted to earlier in the competition for many of the experienced lifters. Here is the overall lifting schedule for the 2015 National Masters:

Women 50 years and older

See the Masters Weightlifting web site for preliminary times and start lists.
Note that the exact lifting times, even once we publish a proposed schedule, are subject to change and will not be finalized until the technical conference on Wednesday night. The day on which anyone lifts is NOT subject to change, but the hour of the day that any group will lift may be adjusted until the Wednesday night Technical Conference. That is, you can be sure of your lifting date, but not your lifting hours (until Wednesday night).
