Important Information Regarding Forms
The above information is very important for this form as your CPU card is printed from the information written on this form. We understand that because Ontario is such a large province, sometimes it is difficult to train with a club once a week. If you are training a minimum of at least 2-3 times a month with a club, you may be affiliated with this club. Indicate this on your membership form. It is important for team awards at competitions. You CANNOT change clubs less than 3 months prior to a contest once you have registered. This is to eliminate stacking clubs to win the team award. To change clubs, the registrar must receive this information via e-mail or post, not a phone call.
A card cannot be issued without the correct waiver form. There are 2 forms, “over the age” and “under the age”. Please fill out the correct waiver and send it in with your membership form. A CPU card will not be issued unless the correct forms are received.
CONTEST ENTRY FORMS
This is important at a contest when the meet director is preparing the paperwork. If your information is clear then hopefully there will be no errors when the announcer is calling your name to lift. Also, if certificates are to be printed, you will want them done correctly. The other area that needs to be clear is your e-mail address. Phones calls are costly, e-mail is inexpensive. Make sure you have marked your CPU # on the entry form and that you do actually have the card to show the officials at the contest.
Note: Refer also to the Constitution and Bylaws for further clarity
