Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association Provincial Championships - October 26, 2013 - Saskatoon, SK - Aug 12 2013

The 2013 Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association Provincial Championships will be held in at Reebok Crossfit 306 in Saskatoon on October 26th.  Marc Morris (marc.morris@usask.ca) and Chris Arnold (chrisarnold5@shaw.ca) are the meet directors and this is going to be a great contest so plan to be there!  If you are not planning on lifting, there is always a need for volunteers, so get in touch with Marc or Chris to let them know you are willing to volunteer.  

Remember, anyone can lift at our Provincial Championships, even a new lifter!  Also, National Records can only be set at Provincial Championships and higher level events, so this is your only chance to set National Records in Saskatchewan this year.    

The Provincial Annual General Meeting will be held the night before the Championship - Friday October 25th at 8:00pm at Reebok Crossfit 306.  An overview of the past year as well as plans for the upcoming year will be discussed.  If there are any constitutional changes, these will require a vote of the membership.  If there are any constituional changes you would like to propose, please email Ryan Fowler (saskpowerlifting@gmail.com) and he will add them to the agenda for discussion.  

Posted below are the entry forms and Waiver required for this Championship.  We hope to see you there!
