Scranton, Pennsylvania
January 30-31st, 2010
I would like to invite you to this dual Annual USA Powerlifting Collegiate and High School event. On Saturday we will host the 5th Annual NE Regional High School and Collegiate Powerlifting Championships. On Sunday we will host the only dedicated RAW High School and Collegiate Powerlifting Championships in the United States.

This year we have changed our contest venue, giving us double the space we have had the last few years which was really needed, with the growth of this event. Along with this location offering double the space, over 9000 Sq. Ft., it also less then a half mile from 20+ restaurants and over 100 stores.

We have changed up the lifting schedule, to help make the operations of this event run a little more effectively. We will run the North East Regional Championships on Saturday and the RAW Championships on Sunday, to allow our team to more effectively run the event.

I hope you consider this event. We are expecting an even larger turnout this year and are prepared to run one of the biggest events in the North East this year.
