2009 USAPL Women's Nat'l PL Championships - Miami

Posted By: Robert Keller
Date: Saturday, 1 November 2008, at 3:42 a.m.

The 27th USAPL Women's National Powerlifting Championships will be held Saturday/Sunday, February 14 & 15, 2009 at the Hyatt Hotel, in downtown Miami, Florida. An application for the event can be found here:
http://www.usaplnationals.com/2009-wome ... index.html

I would like to begin by stating the volunteers of USA Powerlifting – Florida are very excited about hosting this year’s championship.

I have placed this year's championship in a location with the highest possible degree of activities for you and your family members. The hotel and venue are located just 10 minutes away from both South Beach and Bayside Marketplace -- two of the most popular attractions Miami has to offer. Information pertaining to these two “Hot” tourist spots can be found at the following web-links: http://www.southbeach-usa.com and http://www.baysidemarketplace.com

The equipment for the championship will be of international calibre, and will include six [6] ER/Combo squat/bench press racks from Denmark, and six [6] sets of calibrated Ivanko bars/weights. This equipment will be used both on the competition platform and in the warm-up area. A computerized scoring system shall be used to direct and calculate the individual and team scoring for the championship. The Florida Gulf Coast University Powerlifting Team will be handle the spotting/loading and are the fastest and best loaders in the game.

Key and important, the championship will be drug-tested in accordance with USAPL/IPF standards. IPF Referees will be in attendance for lifters to set both World and American records. In addition, if you require powerlifting gear, commercial sellers will be available with the most up-to-date equipment to accommodate your specific needs.

As a kind and gentle reminder, please be aware of the deadlines AND Group Code, to make your hotel reservations. It is VERY important that you make your reservations early, as this is high season for tourism in Miami! The competition will be held on President's Day Weekend, which are the same dates as the Miami International Boat Show [largest in the world], so if you miss the deadline, locating a hotel room, in and outside of Miami, for a reasonable price, will be quite difficult.

Information pertaining to the boat show can be found here: http://www.miamiboatshow.com/

If you have any questions regarding this championship, or if I can be of further assistance, I can be reached via e-mail: rhk@verizon.net or by: 954.790.2249 -- I am here to answer all of your questions.

To close, on behalf of USA Powerlifting, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you much success with your training for this competition and look forward to seeing you at the championship in Miami!

Sincere regards,
Robert Keller
Contest Director
