I am posting this here with Chris Mason's approval.
This is a meet that I am putting on along with a local gym here in northern Indiana. It is not sanctioned or affiliated with any federation or other organization, it's just for fun.
If you are in the area or within driving distance it would be a good way to spend a day.
There will be a lot of novice lifters and people new to powerlifting along with other experienced lifters. It's a good way to meet people, promote the sport and introduce lifters to REAL weight training
