    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO QUALIFY FOR BC'S in 2012 FOR MENS & WOMENS PHYSIQUE FOR 2012 ONLY
    thereafter you will need to qualify by placing top 3 at Novice Show

    Dawn, since this is a new division it doesn't matter then if someone has competed and won overalls in another division (figure, BB or fitness) in previous years. Is this right?
    How about if someone has competed at Nationals in either figure, fitness or BB? Are they still able to compete in Physique in Kelowna?
    Would one still hold their overall title and thus lifetime qualification for BCs? Or would they need to relinquish that if moving over to Physique....??
    thanks

    thanks
    when you go to compete in another catagory you start all over again
    now for 2012 you can go straight to BC's in physique without qualifying cuz it's open
    thatz for 2012 only

    if you are decide you are gonna compete in physique in 2012 you cannot compete in BBing too
    you haveta decide what you are gonna compete in that year and stick with it


    but lets say you are an overall in novice bodybuilding which gives you a life time qualification to the BC's
    but you wanna compete in physique in 2013
    you still gotta start back down at the bottom at a novice show and go back up thru the tier system
    even if they were at National level in Figure say
    then still gotta start back at bottom in novice show: Kelowna, FSJ or SWFC in 2013
    now in 2012 they can go straight to BC's cuz it's open or they can go to Kelowna or FSJ if they want the practice but they don't need it to qualify for 2012 only

    hope i made that all clear
    any more questions please feel free to ask away
    Dawn
