Summer Open Cancelled

We must unfortunately cancel the 2020 Summer Open Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships. While BC has progressed to phase 3 of its restart plan, there are still many restrictions in place that prevent us from providing a safe atmosphere for a powerlifting competition that follows provincial guidance. We are making the decision now to cancel Summer Open so competitors aren’t burdened with making training and travel plans.

BC is considered a leader worldwide in its approach to combating the spread of coronavirus, and we thank our members for being a part of the process and solution. Please continue to observe the guidance of our provincial health officer so we can return to competition as soon as possible!

Members who have registered for Summer Open will be taken off the roster and the roster will not be carried over to the next competition.
