USA Powerlifting Grateford State Corrections Institute Event - Male Only (PA-2017-08)

Please feel free to invite anyone who would like to compete in a USAPL State-Sanctioned Powerlifting meet at SCI-Graterford on April 23rd, 2017. There is no entry fee, since this is in a state prison, but donations are welcome (monetary donations are used to pay for the membership fees of incarcerated people. The individuals incarcerated at SCI-Graterford make from 11 cents to 42 cents/hour, so saving up for a $45 membership once a year is quite costly). Individuals who wish to compete have a few requirements:

Must be a USAPL member by the date of competition (Register here).

Must complete the linked ---> clearance form by March 14th (This is to gain access to the prison. No personal information will be collected by anyone in the USAPL. Clearances go directly to the prison from myself. The form must be directly handed to me or mailed to my office at the address in my signature below). It doesn't matter if you have prior convictions, just fill out the form as completely and honestly as possible.

Must be able to be at the prison from 7am- 3:30pm the day of the meet.

Must identify as male (No women are allowed to compete since this is a male facility. Women are welcome to volunteer to help the day of, but on a first come-first serve basis).
-This is a raw meet & drug-free.

Please feel free to give me a call on my cell: 570-561-5951 if you, or anyone else has additional questions. We would love to have as many outside competitors come in to give the guys inside some real competition! It is a really fun day and I hope to see some outside  people there!
