Dear USAPL Member:

Greetings! It is my pleasure to announce to you that the 27th USAPL National Masters Powerlifting Championships will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 2 – 4, 2008 at the Radisson – Miami Biscayne Bay Hotel, in downtown Miami, Florida. An application for the event can be found here:

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

I have placed the event 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 -- the two most popular attractions Miami has to offer. Information pertaining to these two “Hot” tourist spots can be found at the following two web-links: www.southbeach-usa.com and www.baysidemarketplace.com

The contest equipment will be of international caliber, 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 room. Barload software program and a computerized scoring system shall be used to direct and calculate the individual and team scoring for the championship. Finally, Dennis Hulslander will direct the platform spotters to ensure the utmost safety and flawless and fastest loading possible!

Key and important, the championship will be drug-tested in accordance with USAPL/IPF standards. Also, 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 reminder, please be aware of the deadlines for hotel reservations and your contest entry. Please make your reservations early, as this is high season for tourism in Florida!

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
