Default Getting started in powerlifting

Is there some secret handshake, or hazing ritual that I am missing? I've been trying to figure out how to get into powerlifting, besides just training solo at my local gym and calling myself a powerlifter because I deadlift, bench and squat.

I would like to work up to a meet at some point ( I say some point because I feel that I need a better total than 1000 lbs at 181lb to compete).

Every other sport or activity seems to have such a great open and welcoming community, but I've reached out to a few local powerlifters in my area for advice/mentoring and gotten zero response. I'd prefer to not have to take an airplane on a weekly basis to train at a reputable gym.


Has anyone here actually competed in a powerlifting meet?
