In an effort to start all of our scheduled events on time, we encourage all wrestlers to make their pre-registered weight, by doing so, the events will start on time. Smaller tournaments can afford to make changes, have a later start time and still finish early. When you're dealing with 800-2500 wrestlers, the options become limited IF you have to finish at a decent hour for out of state attendees.

If the call is in your favor you may continue using the RMN Challenge flag. All flags can be used at any RMN Tournament where video review is available
