This is an Olympic weightlifting meet - so for all our friends new to weightlifting, that means 2 lifts: Snatch and Clean & Jerk. 3 attempts at each lift. Everyone of all ages are encouraged to compete!
Are you completely panic stricken at the idea of a USAW sanctioned meet? Or are you considering trying a sanctioned meet in the future but want to get your feet wet and not pony up a higher meet fee if you are not quite sure you want to do it yet? Or do you have an upcoming meet that you are planning on doing but just want to test out your #gainz in a low key fun atmosphere? THIS IS THE MEET FOR YOU! This is an un-sanctioned meet, meaning you can't qualify to compete at any higher level. However, it is a fantastic meet for you to get on the platform, try it out, see if you like competing before you take the next step to the next level.
ANNNNNNDDDDD, we'll have Candy Bars. Yes, you heard right. All of the awards will be given in candy bars and we'll have all the good ones.
WHY CANDY BARS, you might ask...? Well, we're wanting to use this fun meet series as an introduction to competing on the platform and keep it totally fun. And we're also using this meet series as a way to fundraise to get new equipment for the gym. You see, everyone keeps getting stronger. And that means we need more bumper plates to accommodate that. And who doesn't like candy bars, anyway? We will also be asking for a $2 spectator fee to help with getting the new equipment.
Note that this meet will probably have two sessions, one for ladies and one for men. Girls will compete with the ladies and boys will compete with the men. We will certainly have the appropriate size barbell for our smaller competitors. If we have a smaller number of competitors, we'll just run one session.
The fine print: Pricing is a flat rate; no early bird specials, no late fees, just the same pricing across the board. Also as per normal meets, the entry fee is nonrefundable. Registration ends February 11 so that we can organize the sessions and communicate the details to everyone. We're looking forward to a fun day!
