There has been a big change this year in our USAWA Postal Meet Series. John Wilmot has “stepped down” as the Postal Meet Director after many years of doing an excellent job in this capacity. Our USAWA Postal Meets have become a BIG PART of the yearly USAWA schedule, with quarterly meets culminating in the final Postal Meet Championships in December. Many USAWA lifters have taken part in some or all of these postal meets. It has become a great tradition for the USAWA – with thanks going to John Wilmot for starting this tradition.
I was initially concerned about the future of these events with John’s resignation. But then – lo and behold – our USAWA President Denny Habecker agreed to taking the position of Postal Meet Director. Denny has a long resume of being a very successful meet promoter, and this position is in no better hands than Denny’s. I feel confidant that the future of the USAWA Postal Meets will be strong as long as Denny is in the position.
The first quarterly Postal Meet has been announced for the year. The format will remain the same as before – with three lifts chosen per meet. There are two single arm lifts in this meet – and you only need to do the lift the arm of your choosing. Make sure to circle which arm you use on the entry form.
Also, the big difference is to remember to send your results to Denny from now on instead of John.
Swing – Dumbbell, One Arm
Deadlift – No Thumbs, One Arm
Deadlift – 2 Bars
