2014 Badger Open Results

Congratulations to everyone who competed this past weekend at the 2014 Badger State Open.  Results have been posted on the WHSPA website.  Check out some of the awesome lifting!

A huge thanks to Joe Lewis for a great meet!  Also, a big thanks to everyone helping lifters, judging, spotting, and loading, wouldn’t be a good meet without all of these people!

Good luck to all of the Wisconsin lifters going to Men’s Nationals in Philadelphia this weekend.

2014 Badger Open – Flight List

The Badger Open late registration period closed on Friday and there are 96 lifters registered!  The tentative flight list has been posted online.  This year there will be two platforms, one flight of bench only and 4 flights (times the two platforms) of three-lift lifters!

This year it looks like Joe Lewis is going to provide a live stream for both platforms, so if you have friends or family members lifting, but cannot make it to Neenah this weekend, you can still watch them lift.

For those of you attending this weekend here are some of the details:

  • Saturday, June 14th
  • Location: 1275 Tullar Rd, Neenah, WI 54956, Neenah High School – CAFETERIA RM 310
  • Weigh-ins and equipment check will be from 7:00-8:30 am
  • Lifting will begin at 9:00 am

If you are competing this weekend and you haven’t purchased your USAPL membership card you should do so online and save yourself $5.

Good luck to everyone lifting and looking forward to a great event this weekend!
