The night before the tournament, the black belts meet and go over all details of the tournament so everything goes as smooth as possible. Then, on the day of the tournament everyone arrives, friends are greeted, check the assignment board, look at the posters from area classes, have a last minute practice, and then, it is time to line up for the bow-in.

After the bow-in the national anthems of Canada and the United States are sung and then announcments are given and awards are presented.
