Time to Renew!

By Al Myers

Tis the time of the season to renew your USAWA membership!

I want to remind everyone that membership in the USAWA is for the calendar year – running from January 1st to December 31st.  There’s no reason to wait to join.  I have already had one member (William Clark of Habecker’s Gym) join for 2017 and he’s already listed on the 2017 membership roster.

I consider it an honor to be joined before the new year begins, and those that do get the distinction of having the “January 1st” join date listed beside their name!

Updated Record List

By Al Myers

The USAWA Record List has just been updated on the website.  Everything is current in the list at this point. I’ve added the Excel File as well, available for download.  This will allow sort features for those who prefer to use Excel.  From now on I will include both the PDF and Excel file of the Record List on the website.
