A Message From Our State Chair

Posted: November 11, 2012 by Michelle in Uncategorized

First of all I want to welcome Michelle James and thank her for taking over the Nebraska USAPL website. I think she will be a wonderful asset to our sport here in Nebraska. As you already have noticed our website has taken on a new look and we are planning on maybe making a few more changes as time goes by. We will try our hardest to keep things updated and keep you informed about what’s going on in powerlifting in Ne. Also I want to thank Tim Anderson for taking care of the website as long as he did. It is really appreciated. Tim will still be taking care of the records and I want to thank him for that.

A reminder to our High School lifters that High School National’s are in Denver this year April 5-7. I want to encourage you to consider this because you don’t always get that chance to go when its this close, especially for some of you toward the west end of the State. Also it an honor to be able to compete at the National level.

About our meets coming up. First of all Wayne Herl is holding a meet Dec 8th in Topeka, Kansas. Of course Steve and I are hosting the Capitol City Clash Jan 26th in Lincoln and the State meet will be held at the end of April.
