April 8 - Great Lakes in Erie
May 6 - 38th Annual Power Day and PA State BP Championships in Bigler
June 30/July1 - American Challenge-PA in Ft. Washington (near Philly)
October 6-8 - World Championships in Erie
Note about May 6 meet in Bigler: It is PSU graduation. Hotels are pretty booked. Rodeway Inn in Clearfield had a few rooms left. May need to look in to DuBois-area lodging (25 minutes away on Interstate-80). Could try the Harbor Inn in Philipsburg (10 min away), or possibly Altoona-area (about 45 min away).
National and world records can now be set at any meet where the proper judges are in attendance. Shouldn't be a problem with any PA meets, but let the meet director know if you're attempting world records, so we can ensure the proper coverage.
We'll be going to a standardized bar - 15 kg (33 lbs with collars) for the curl. And 1 kg (2.2 pound) jumps between attempts are now allowed.
