Default Finding meets in Florida

FML. I moved back to Florida a few months ago, and I finally decided to hit up PL watch and see what meets are going on around here, only to see that the ONLY two feds with meets listed in all of Florida are USAPL and WNPF. I don't want to compete in a tested fed, so I can't do either of those. Anybody know of other meets or other ways of finding meets that are going on? I'm not traveling to another state just to compete.

APF runs a few meets per year. Orlando barbell puts on one in October I think.

Thanks JB! I was hoping to hit up something during the Summer, but I'll definitely do everything I can to get to the meet in Orlando. It's on Oct 17. I need to get some experience competing, not only because I want to do it, but I also don't feel like I can call myself a powerlifting "coach" if I haven't even competed yet.

I knew there would be meets. I'm just not in tune enough with the scene to know when and where they are. I'm training a couple other guys who want to compete eventually too, so it's something I need to figure out.

If you look at the meet calendar you'll see that there are 3 Florida meets in October.
It's a good group of people up that way. They'll help you out if you let them know you need some guidance on what to do and when to do it.
I'm not in Florida but I'll be glad to try and answer any questions you might have.
If we get desperate we can even try picking JB's brain for some info
