2014 USAWA POSTAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
The big finale of our USAWA Postal Meet Series is upon us!
The Postal Championships will be held during the full month of December, with the entry deadline the last day of the month. USAWA Postal Meet Director Denny Habecker has picked a good selection of lifts to test everyone’s strength in our Championship event. Also – I want to remind everyone that this meet “counts double” in generating points toward the yearly postal series point totals. Let’s have another good turnout of participation!
Snatch – From Hang
Deadlift – One Arm, Dumbbell
Pullover and Push
Denny has let me know that SIX lifters have taken part in all three of the previous quarterly postal meets this year. Denny commented, “I thought some people might be interested to see the cumulative point totals of the people who have done all the postals so far this year. So here they are.”
Barry Bryan – 1622.62 points
Eric Todd – 1621.58 points
Denny Habecker – 1603.83 points
Ruth Jackson – 1426.12 points
Lance Foster – 1164.63 points

November 1, 2014, ET’s House of Iron and Stone will play host to the third annual “Battle in the Barn, an Old Time Strongman event. This year, three Old Time Strongman events will be contested, along with one traditional all-round lift. The lifts are as follows:
Hand and Thigh
As we did last year, we will score this meet in 2 different ways. The first is by formula; the second is by straight weight lifted. I am not sure what they will look like yet, but there will be awards at this event.
Anyone who has been to my gym before know it is a “no-frills” facility. Climate control looks like an open window and a fan in the summer and a wood fire in the winter. The “restroom” is located outside, back behind the giant tin can that we lift in. But there is lots of iron. It is a great place to lift big weights and get strong.
After the meet, I am hoping to have a short record breaking session. I plan on having a couple records to shoot for and hope you do as well. Please contact me at SalGuimino@yahoo.com or on the forum with any questions or if you have a particular record you would like to attempt after the meet. Hope some of you can make it out for a great day of lifting. Entry is attached.
