From meet director William Rickards regarding the 2013 SC State Championships…
“The 2013 USAPL South Carolina State Championship will take place Saturday December 14th, 2013 – with early equipment checkon Friday evening between 7 and 8pm. The T Shirt design and roster can be viewed on the Meet Website at http://www.scusaplmeet.com. Also be sure to click on the link to the Face Book Page (at the top of the page on RHS) – we need more lifters on Face Book so that we can strengthen our State’s Power Lifting Membership. Our State organization is only as strong as its members, and we have some very strong members here. We need to encourage new members and any gym friends that you have.
We will take the first 50 lifters that register, after that, lifters will be on an Alternate roster and will replace lifters that cancel ahead of the Meet.
We still need at least one experienced platform manager for the spotting/loading teams and experienced spotters would be appreciated. All spotter loaders get a free Meet T shirt, lunch and snacks.
To qualify for a free Meet T shirt you must register before November 15th. The venue is close to the beautiful city of Charleston with plenty of sightseeing and great food.
