Message from Shawn Cain about the upcoming 25th Hudson Natural Open
The Hudson Natural Open will be held for the 25th year in a row in Hudson Wisconsin, on the 2nd of November, 2013. It has always been held in Hudson. It has always been a well run meet, and for many years now has been held in a nice hotel in Hudson. We have also had many years of competition for the Border Battle Trophy between Minnesota and Wisconsin. Every year that battle is a tight one. so far, Wisconsin is in the lead for wins. That could change at any time.
We always give out very nice awards at the contest. You will not see cheap awards at the Hudson meet. We have given out a variety in types of awards, but they have always been quality awards. Niels Anderson Sculptures have been the type of award given out for a few years now. We offer many different divisions for the lifters to enter. Old, young, geared, or RAW, we have a division for you. It has always been a full Powerlifting meet. We have never offered a Bench Only division.
Because this is the 25th year for holding this meet, we are giving away a few 2013 Silver Eagle coins to a few lucky competitors. We have to determine how to pick the winners of these special coins yet. They will not just go to the best lifters. They could go to anyone who enters the meet.
