The IAWA World Championships is fast approaching! I have been in contact with meet promoter Frank Ciavattone, and everything is “in place” for a great weekend of competition and fun. An important part of this annual event is the annual general meeting of the IAWA. All IAWA members are invited to attend. The meeting will occur Friday evening, September 26th, at 7 PM. The location of the meeting is the Old Colonial Café, 171 Nahatan St, Norwood, MA, 02062. Frank has reserved us an outside garden type pavilion for the meeting. If anyone wants to meet for dinner beforehand be there at 6 PM. Frank told me that this is a favorite place for the locals!
The banquet will occur Sunday night, September 28th at the same place. The IAWA World Championships Banquet will start at 6 PM. The phone number of the restaurant is 1-781-762-2058. Frank said he is very pleased with the entries so far for Worlds, and it is looking to be a 20+ lifter meet. The deadline is approaching fast so get your entries in soon if you haven’t already!
