Bill Clark has just revealed the dates for the five sanctioned USAWA Events during the upcoming lifting season in Clark’s Gym. All of this will begin with a gym record day on October 24th, and ending with the annual Deanna Springs Memorial Meet on March 27th. In between these two events will be the long standing Zercher Strength Classic (January 29th) and the prestigious Hermann Goerner Deadlift Dozen plus One ( December 4th). Bill Clark has received the 2010 sanction from the USAWA Executive Board to host this year’s Heavy Lift National Championships, which will be held in conjunction with the Steve Schmidt’s Backbreaker on November 6th.
As per tradition of events directed by Bill Clark, no entry fee is charged to enter, and all competitions will be held in Clark’s Gym in Columbia, Missouri. What a deal! There is not many things you get for free in today’s World, so plan on making at least one of the competitions on the Clark’s Gym Meet Schedule. You will get your money’s worth!! Bill has put on more events than any other meet director in the history of the USAWA, and Clark’s Gym has been a USAWA Club Member since the inception of the USAWA.

It is very important to contact Bill prior to attending so he can adequately plan for the competition day- and it is the LEAST you can do for a meet director that is promoting a meet without charge.
