Default 100% Raw American Challenge

Dear Lifters,
The American Challenge is rapidly approaching so make sure to get your entries in. The deadline is June 1st so if your interested and you have not sent in your entry form you will need to call your regional meet director to see if he is taking late entries. The meet directors usually will give you a few days to get your forms in after the deadline date before a late fee is charged or refusal to the meet takes place. This weekend the Nebraska regional will take place so if you live in that region you will need to contact Ed Horwitz ASAP if you would like to participate in this historical event. All the rest of the meets will take place next week on June 12th so please hurry so you don't get left out. As of now there are 305 lifters registered across the country for this event. With a late rush I can see us hitting 350-400 lifters.

This will be the largest meet ever in the history of 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation beating last year’s Single-Lift Worlds in Norfolk, VA that had 225 lifters in the 2 day event. This year we decided to try a format that no other federation has ever tried. The main reason is the economy, with so many people in our country hurting by the recession we have tried to help alleviate the travel costs by bringing the meet closer to home for you. With 8 locations around the country the final results will be very prestigious. This meet is not about the awards but mainly who is the real National Champion. With so many federations and dealing with a recession how many lifters would come to a national meet in 1 location maybe 50-100? This meet is expected to have 300-400 in the final results. You will place in your own regional event and then at the end of the day when all the results are in you will see how you compare with the rest of the country pending drug testing results.

This is a Sanction III event meaning you can set or break state, national and world records on this day. All age groups and weight classes will follow normal event regulations and lifters will be broken in accordance to these categories. We have some big names coming out to compete in this event and we will try to post them on our website weekly with updates starting in about a week or two. I know we will have the Worlds #1 pound for pound strongest Drug Free RAW bencher Dennis Cieri of New Jersey. I am not sure what location he will compete at but if you have a chance to share the same platform with him that would be an honor in itself. He has been on the front cover of PLUSA many times and is a multiple IPF World Champion. The banner on the front page is the shirt design we will use and it will have all the locations printed on the front with the date. The custom medals will also be the same design. The back of the shirt will read “Where the real National Champions are crowned”. This means for our federation and I do not want to disrespect any other organization out there as you all have very strong lifters as well. This purely is meant for our federation 100% RAW. Make sure you pre-order your shirts as each meet director will be ordering them in and not buying many extras so do not miss out. These will be done by Egad’s Screen printing in Elizabeth City, NC. These are the guys who have been making the awesome artwork we have been using over the years.

This meet is about prestige not awards as I already stated. The custom medals are awesome but what means the most is finding out you won a weight class with 30 other lifters from around our country in it. Now we will have something special for the bench press only. We will give out best lifters awards for the bench only division in the following weight classes and divisions (132, 148, 165, 181, 198, 220, 242, 275, 275+, female, teen, master 1 40-49, master 2 50-59, master 3 (60 plus). This is what I am committing to right now. If the (female, teen, master 1 40-49, master 2 50-59, master 3 60 plus) has many more lifters than expected then we may add a light and heavy to each division depending on participation. We may even add a police/fire/military division as well. It all depends on the amount of interest so if you have a chance to cross over you may want to do so. As of now I am not committing to the deadlift and curl lifts. Again if the turnout is overwhelming in these lifts I will also have best lifter awards in these lifts. It will not be as many as the bench maybe a lightweight and heavyweight for each or a master, maybe even a female as well. It all comes down to how many lifters will attend in each lift meaning bench, deadlift and curl. I really hope that the interest in the deadlift and curl will warrant best lifter awards as I would love to give those lifters an opportunity as well.

For the best lifter awards here is what we have planned. It has a total worth of $325 for each person winning this award.

1. Free entry to the world championships. ($75)

2. Free custom national champion personalized plaque ($50)

3. Free 100% RAW Team USA warm up suit. ($175)

4. Free shipping on this as well ($25)

Any lifter winning their class or age group but does not win the overall best lifter are welcome to purchase the custom national champion personalized plaque and the 100% RAW Team USA warm-ups as well. These will be available for all lifters winning their classes and age groups. Any 1st place no matter of how many participants in that class are welcome to purchase these awards as well.

I look forward in seeing you lift with us at this special event. If you have any questions please e-mail me and I will return your e-mail as soon as possible.

Many thanks to Arian Salarian for his hard work and dedication for promoting the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation in these parts of the World.
