Icon8 IBJJF Penalty Bull Sh*t ...now can't register for Worlds

I competed at IBJJF World Mundials in 2012 and while checking my weight (the day before my division started) i took my GI top off After stepping off the scale and immediately got swarmed on by a female IBJJF staff employee. She ran at me like I killed someone and demanded for my Drivers license. I asked why? She wouldn't tell me until I gave her my license. In complete surprise I was then informed that I received a penalty for removing my GI in the weigh in area. They said I would receive a letter from IBJJF. Well I got the letter several months later stating something like I owed them $70 for the penalty or I could not compete for the rest of the year without paying the penalty. Now in 2013 I'm trying to register for Master/ Senior Worlds and it won't let me register because it says I owe a "penalty". I've tried contacting IBJJF well over a week ago. No reply. Now even if they figure it out I'm still going to have to pay additional registration fee because its past the deadline. WTF is wrong with these people? Anyone had to deal with penaltys before? That rule was no was no where in the rule book for 2012 and i even pointed that out when she informed me of the rule. Now it is apparently in the 2013 rules!

while they do have the biggest tournaments and i'm planning to enter a few of them in the future, if this happened to me i believe i'd tell the lady and the federation to go fuck themselves.

I would expect your minor penalty to be over. 2012 Worlds was a long time ago and any penalty should be long over. Send them an email asking them to remove the penalty, it might be a mistake.

Sad. Don't pay.

Honestly, IBJJF sounds more like the film Brazil

You can only take this pomp and circumstance so far.
