WI USAPL Members:
Last weekend hundreds of teenagers competed in WHSPA regional powerlifting contests. There are two more contests this weekend. An exciting month, leading into four-five regional contests in January. Many are trying to qualify for state held in Osceola, Wis. on Mar. 8 and 9. This is a sanctioned USAPL contest with as many as 400 participants.
The WI State Open contest on Jan. 18, 2014 has 70 registrations in. The cap is 115 with an entry form deadline of Jan. 11th. Meet information is available in the original post with the registration link.
Christmas goodies will definitely not help those trying to stay within a weight class! Good luck over the next twelve days.
I’ve been state chair since Jan. 2011, having been voted in by active USAPL members residing in Wisconsin. Bruce Sullivan was the former state chair for many years. Quite a challenge to fill his shoes. According to the USAPL bylaws, section 2.1, every two years there is to be an election. Members will be able to vote via an on-line survey link or vote in person at the Jan. 18, ’14 contest. I’ve enjoyed the role and am looking forward to continue as there many opportunities to continue membership growth in our state. Should there be another individual who like to be added to the ballot, please let me know. Providing a resume, so to speak, will be helpful.
