The 2017 USA Powerlifting Palmetto Classic is less than a week away! We are currently sitting at 80 lifters on the roster. This contest will be moving up to two platforms this year, so we will need all the volunteerism that we can get to help make this meet a success. Please contact Jon Mouzon at email@example.com if you are willing and able to help us out.
You need to be sure that you have purchased your USA Powerlifting membership card. Prior to competing at the Palmetto Classic, we want you to be as prepared as possible so you get the most out of your training. This starts with being ready to go when you arrive. Your membership card should be on hand when you check in for the Classic either on Friday night or early Saturday morning. Your card is good for a full calendar year and can be used as any times as you can compete in a USA Powerlifting or IPF sanctioned event. This means that it will expire at the end of December. If you renewed or joined the organization in November for the Fall Festival of Power or in December, preparing for the SC State Championship, your card is good for this year.
Please purchase your card online prior to arriving to the Palmetto Classic. You can sign up at this link: http://www.usapowerlifting.com/membership-application/.
The lifting schedule for the Classic is listed below. Flights will be posted prior to lifting on Saturday and we move as quickly as lifters can be ready to step on the platform. We also move fairly fluidly from one flight to the next, however estimating exact times of lifting and when we will be finished is impossible to predict accurately.
