Gold Cup

By Al Myers

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

2017 IAWA GOLD CUP

The 2017 IAWA Gold Cup will be held in Glasgow, Scotland on November 4th, 2017.  Joint promoters of this important IAWA competition are Mathew Finkle and Andrew Tomlin.  Both these guys are veterans of promoting meets and have promoted excellent Gold Cups in the past.  I assure anyone going this will be an outstanding event.

It will be a little different this year in Glasgow as the event venue will be different than before.  This year the Gold Cup will be at the Croftfoot Scout Hall.  Matt and Andy have already made plans for a banquet after the meet, held at the Ivory Hotel.

DEADLINE FOR ENTRY IS OCTOBER 21ST

World Postal

By Al Myers

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

2017 IAWA WORLD POSTAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

The World Postal has been announced!  Steve Gardner has passed along the promotion of this meet to me.  It will be promoted in a very similiar manner to the way Steve has done it the past few years, which has been very successful.  It will still be the “Andy Goddard Memorial”.  Andy was a great friend and supporter of the IAWA and as long as I’m involved promoting the World Postal it will be done in Andy’s memory. As it has been the past few years, the lifts for this World Postal will be the first day lifts of the upcoming Worlds.  Please send your results to me this year (instead of Steve!) at amyers@usawa.com.
