Heavy Lift Championships

2013 USAWA HEAVY LIFT CHAMPIONSHIPS
I am very glad to announce that the Heavy Lift Championships will be returning to Walpole, Massachusetts for this year. Frank Ciavattone will be hosting this years Championships. As most of you know, Frank has been one of the most active MAJOR meet promoters throughout the years in the USAWA. Frank has promoted numerous other Heavy Lift Championships so seeing this meet “return home” is a good feeling. I have NO DOUBT that Frank will make this years event a glorious occasion and a fun experience for everyone who attends.
The events contested in this year’s Heavy Lift Champs will be: Neck Lift, Hand and Thigh Lift, and the Hip Lift. It will be held in Frank’s gym, but he has told me that if the weather is nice it might be held outside. The entry fee is $55, payable to Frank. All rules of USAWA Championship events will be in place, i.e. USAWA scoring, individual class and age awards, as well as Best Lifter Age Group Awards.
I have been to Frank’s promotions (which is what they are – as the day extends far more than the meet itself), and I can personally guarantee that Frank will put on a TOP NOTCH EVENT. Frank plans to have a back-yard cook out after the Championships, which I hope includes a little of that fabulous Italian food the Ciavattone Family has been known for!!! I’m planning on going just for the food!!!
