Okay, I emailed Wim Wamsteeker about the broken link to the minutes from the Congress Meeting and he has fixed the link:
Lots of interesting stuff. I urge the USAPL lifters to at least glance at the document. The particular bit we're discussing is on page 27 and reads thus:
"2) Change 14.9 Participating in Non-IPF Competition
Any lifter, coach, referee or official who competes or participates in a Powerlifting or Bench Press competition not organised, sanctioned or approved by the IPF shall not be permitted to take part in any IPF international or regional competition for a period of 12 months from the date of that non-approved competition.
** Accepted unanimously with amendments"
What I have pasted is the amended version, so this is how the rule book now reads.
Are these changes effective immediately? If they are then it means that if the IPF doesn't approve another feds comp then lifting in it would mean suspension from IPF comps for a year. I haven't seen anything that says, for example, "We approve of all [insert fed here] events, so don't worry"
What do you all think? I think it's a bit odd that they should be dictating what we can and can't do when we're not professional athletes and don't get paid anything for competing.
