This is just a reminder that the National Championships this coming weekend will be at the home of Denny and Judy Habecker (address is located on the Entry Info Sheet). Denny has announced this some time back on the USAWA Discussion Forum, but it may have been missed by some. Denny has a large backyard, and plans to have a tent and platform set up for the competition. So come prepared to be outside! When Denny hosted the 2010 Nationals he had it outside as well. I really enjoyed it – the “environment” of the meet seemed more relaxed than being inside. Weigh-ins will be 7:30-8:30 Saturday morning, with the lifting starting at 9:30. There will be enough lifters to have two sessions. The first session will be in the morning, and the second session will be in the afternoon.
Also – the Annual National Meeting will be held Saturday afternoon immediately following the day’s lifting. It is not mandatory to attend this meeting – but if you want to be part of the organizations “politics” this is your chance!
Now this comes from Judy (the real mastermind behind this weekend’s festivities - I know the truth Denny!!!):
Just want all the lifters and their supporters to know that food will be available at our home on Friday evening, after weigh-in Saturday and Sunday, breakfast will be available until half-hour (9:30) before meet start, and Saturday evening a meal will be served. Sunday afternoon- evening a banquet style meal will be served. So Please come to our home to all of the above or whenever you wish. Please, if you can ,let me know when you’ll be attending, so I can be sure to prepare enough food. Also, please let me know of any allergies so I can serve food safely, Thanks See you June 28,29,30, Hope all have a safe trip, There is a Holiday Inn Express about 5 minutes from our home, Phone Number is717-273-9800–2205 East Cumberland Street and a Day’s Inn with phone number–717-273-6771 at 625 Quentin Road which is about 5 miles from our home.
