Re: Local Competitions

You can try the USAW calendar:
http://www.msbn.tv/usavision/displayPage.aspx?id=330 (work/family safe)
This is continuously updated, so check back periodically for any listings in your area.

You're in Newark? There's also some stuff coming up at LBH in Rego Park, Queens:

April 12, 2008: Rudy Sablo Weightlifting Championships at Lost Battalion Hall Spectators welcome 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Contact meet director Chris Smith at 516-520-0451 for entry form.

September 20, 2008: NYC Open Weightlifting Championships at Lost Battalion Hall Spectators welcome 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Contact meet director Chris Smith at 516-520-0451 for entry form.

October 25, 2008: Metropolitan Championships Competition at Lost Battalion Hall. Spectators welcome 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Contact meet director Joe Triolo at 718-383-6429 for entry form

Also, the Larry Mintz Weightlifting Championships at LBH were rescheduled for mid-March. I can't recall the date, but they're always on a Saturday.

There's usually something happening in NJ, but I'm not sure what's on the calendar yet. http://www.goheavy.com/forums/olympic/ (safe link) is a good place to ask.

If you can make the drive, I highly recommend the CT Open in August. Gary Valentine always runs a great meet.

Hope this helps.

Re: Local Competitions

In Jersey? Google East Coast Gold - they're all over the eastern seaboard. If you ever have a chance to meet Leo Totten, say hello. He's an awesome coach.
