MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

2016 USAWA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

My wife Leslie and I enjoyed walking the Freedom Trail the last time we were in Boston.

It’s always exciting to announce the National Championships each year.  This meet is the “big daddy” of the meets in the USAWA. Our Nationals has had a continuous run of competitions since the beginning – with the first one being held in 1988.  So this year will make year number 29!

Frank Ciavattone is the meet director this year.  Frank is one of the most seasoned promoters in the USAWA and has previously hosted a couple of Nationals (1996 & 1998).  He is holding the meet in Norwood, which is a suburb of Boston. It will be a one day meet this year.   We will have our annual USAWA meeting following the meet so come prepared for a long day.

I would really encourage everyone in the organization to go to Boston and compete in our National Championships.  There are so many things to see in this area – so it provides the perfect opportunity to combine a vacation along with competing in our most important competition of the year.

This is the announcement for the Postal Championships promoted by the USAWA.  Results must be turned into the USAWA Postal Meet Director Denny Habecker by the deadline stated on the entry form.  A change has been made for the time period in which the postal lifts must be completed this year.  A lifter may do their postal lifts ANYTIME throughout the quarter in which the postal meet is promoted for instead of just the final month.  But remember when doing the postal lifts that it is required that all lifts are done on the SAME DAY.  Also – it is now required that the official postal meet entry form be sent in for your postal lifts to be official. Denny has had some issues with lifters turning in their postal lifts without the entry form in the past year.  This entry form is essential in order that all pertinent information is supplied with your entry.  And as in the past – entering the USAWA postal meets have NO ENTRY FEE.  However, you must be a current member of the USAWA to enter the postal meets.  If you are not a current member your entry will not be accepted.
