Live Stream

Provided that all technological links hold up, we plan to stream this meet live at https://www.barbellcontrol.com/live/. Note that our priority will be to keep the meet moving smoothly and that maintenance of the live stream takes a back seat to the needs of lifters, so we do not guarantee that the stream will be available for the full meet. That being said, tests indicate good connectivity so far.
