The IPF rules aren't valid

Let me state this one more time. Does anyone remember why the IPF was not allowed in the US. It went back to Ernie Frant's law suit which John Inzer assumed. The IPF wouldn't allow Ernie's lifters to compete since they had lifted in another organization's nationals. Now that they are successfully back in the US why would they risk a similar law suit.
Another point that needs to be made again has to do with the fact that the IPF was in attendance at the fist Bench America worlds. Many of the IPF's top benchers were in attendance, at a non-sanctioned IPF meet. So why weren't the IPF execs and lifters all suspended.
Again whether a change in rules will pass or not, you still put it on the ballot every year and lobby for it's support.
Elliot, are you saying that it was on the ballot? If it wasn't it should have been and should continue to be until it passes.
In the past, IPF suspended lifters have lifted at IPF meets in Europe without sanctions against everyone in attendance.
Personally, I would not worry about competing at any meet in any organization.
