Post Raw-Nationals Update

I’d like to take a moment & belatedly congratulate all of the Maryland lifters that competed at USA Powerlifting Raw Nationals last week. 90+ state records were set or broken, and I’ve just approved them all in the database.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment & extend a HUGE thank you to my referees that volunteered their time and worked as Technical Controllers: Melissa Copeland, Ali Squiller, Brad Couillard, Heather Hoff & Allie Feras.

At one point in the competition, a Maryland or DC referee was working 4 of the 5 platforms as Technical Control, and 6 of the 20 State Referees that volunteered for the meet were from MD or DC. I hope that all of us that volunteered our time will consider climbing the ladder & becoming National Referees when the time is right.

Speaking of which, I have been contacted by numerous individuals in the week after the meet about becoming a State Referee for USA Powerlifting. If you’re interested, contact me & we can discuss the process.

2016 USA Powerlifting Equinox Open

2016-Equinox

There is much that is new for 2016!

For starters: this will be the first two platform meet that Maryland has hosted in a long time.  This is exciting because, by growing into a two platform format, we will be able to accommodate more lifters on the day of the event (Saturday, April 16th).  In the past this meet has sold out very quickly, so this is a welcome increase.  Organized by veteran meet director, Evan Davidson, the 2016 USA Powerlifting Equinox Open is being held at a new and larger location this year: the Field House at Dundalk Community College (CCBC-Dundalk).  This meet will be limited to the first 120 online paid registrations.  Due to this meets popularity, it is highly recommended that those who wish to participate sign-up on the same day that registration opens (February 1st) in order to secure a spot.  Participants must be a USAPL member to lift in this meet so please make sure you have an active membership before the meet. This meet will follow all USAPL rules and will use the new weight classes.
