IAWA Gold Cup

2013 IAWA GOLD CUP
The USAWA President Denny Habecker will be hosting this year’s IAWA Gold Cup in Lebanon, PA. The Gold Cup is one of “the three” major IAWA events, and is rotated annually between the membership Nations in IAWA. Last year the Gold Cup was in Glasgow, Scotland and the year before that in Burton, England. So it’s a BIG DEAL when the Gold Cup is hosted in the United States! It gives the opportunity for USAWA lifters to compete in it without having to travel overseas.
This is the THIRD TIME Denny has hosted the Gold Cup (2006 & 2008 were the other times). The late John Vernacchio hosted the Gold Cup three times as well (1992, 1996, & 2003) and the LEGEND Howard Prechtel, who was the one to originate the concept of the Gold Cup, hosted it four times (1991, 1994, 1998, & 2001). This means Denny is achieving the status of Gold Cup fame as a meet director of the IAWA Gold Cup.
Let’s really show the Gold Cup some big support this year from the USAWA! Mark November 2nd on your calendar right now.
