Coefficient System: Please visit our Coefficient Page on our web site for more info on the complete process.

Drug Testing: All lifters are subject to Urine Testing. All lifters that are tested will not receive their Awards until the results of testing are complete. Top Lifters in each division of the meet MAY be tested during the meet according to NASA Standards. All lifters are encouraged to visit NASA's Banned Substance page on our web site at www.nasa-sports.com  Any Pro lifter may be tested at any meet he attends. In the event that a lifter tests positive for anabolic steroids in any meet he shall forfeit his Pro status for life. The Winner of each Division and the Top 5 Lifters based on Total Coefficient will be tested at this meet.

Drug Test Challenges: Any lifter in this meet will be subject to a drug testing challenge by any of his fellow lifters in the competition. If a lifter would like to challenge another lifter he must provide a check or cash deposit of $100.00 to pay for the Test and administrative expenses. If the challenged lifter fails his drug test the $100 will be returned to the lifter filing the challenge. If the Lifter challenged passes the test, the challenger will forfeit the $100.00 deposit.

Entry Fee's For Pro Event: $75.00 per division entered. Squat-$75, Bench Press-$75, Deadlift-$75, Total- $75. Separate prize awards will be paid in each Division. To be eligible for the Total awards the lifter must be entered in all 3 portions of the meet (curl, bp & dl) as well as the Total. The lifter will be competing for over $5,000.00 in Prize money for a $300 entry fee.

Add On Prize Money: There may be special sponsors that will provide "add on" prize money to lifters such as Over-All Top M-2 Lifter, Over-All Teenage/Junior Lifter, Over-All Police, Fire and Military Lifter. These awards will be announced as the meet draws closer.

Notice To Potential Pro Lifters: Please be advised that some of the Top PS Lifters will not be attending this event due to distance, time, etc. Please don't be discouraged by your ranking in the Top 100 lists. We can assure you that many of the prize winners in this event will be lifters not ranked in the top 100.

Success of this Event - Support: The 2008 event is already financed. Whether we continue this event will depend entirely on the turnout and interest the lifters show in this 2008 event. If you plan to compete in this event later in your career and not in 2008, you may want to sign up as a Pro and support the program and the event so it will continue for you and others when you are ready to lift in it. This meet may be cancelled if enough interest is not shown by the lifters. NASA & Rich Peters Reserves the Right to cancel this event by 6-10-08 if numbers are not sufficient to ensure the success of this Pro Event.

NOTE: If the entries for the Pro Championships exceed early expectations the prize money MAY be extended, proposed, to even more places to 15th. This is totally dependent on the number of pre-entries in the actual meet and at the sole decision of the meet director. NASA also reserves the right to cancel, re-schedule or postpone this and any meet at any time. If this should occur, all lifters will be given a 100% refund on their Pro Card and entries for this particular Pro event only. A final decision on whether this meet will occur will be announced no later than June 10th, 2008.

Special Note: We maintain the right to refuse membership to any person for any reason.

Future Pro Events: If this program is accepted and used by our lifters, it will continue. If it is a huge success the prize money will grow and there may be added divisions in later meets such as a Light and Heavy Division. The choice is yours, the lifter.

Refund Policy: Absolutely No Refunds or carry over's for either Pro Membership fee's or Pro Entry Fee's since this is a cash meet. If for any reason this meet is cancelled, all Pro Card Registrations and Entry Fee's will be refunded.
