We are now just a little over two weeks away from our Heavy Lift Nationals at York Barbell, in York, PA. The event organizer and the person who made this whole affair happen, Mike Loncondro, just sent me the days itinerary. There will be many activities happening at the same time. We will have our competition in the Main Gym while the kettlebell workshop will be in the auditorium. We will need to have our meet done by noon in order for all attention to be given to the main feature of the day – the York Hall of Fame induction of Slim the Hammerman. In the afternoon, we will have a record day session and All-Round Weightlifting demonstrations. Hopefully, this will give us the opportunity to introduce the All-Round Lifts to several new lifters.
The meet t-shirts are being picked up today. On behalf of the USAWA, several of these shirts will be donated to this event to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. This charity helps wounded soldiers restore their physical abilities through the pursuit of athletic fitness. It is truly a worthwhile cause!! I think everyone will really like the t-shirts I designed for this. The awards will be ordered the first of next week for the competition. So – all the plans are “in motion” to make this day a very special day for everyone involved.
