Cool Help Me Choose a Federation Please

Help me pick a Federation Please...

I've looked through them and it's like choosing from a Chinese Menu...

Highly Cornfusing...

Any competition that I do will be in the Future, but I'm curious now.

I like the Idea of Raw Powerlifting;

I do consider a Good Tight Belt to be a Necessity for Squats and Bench—don't use one on Deadlift...

And I strongly prefer Wrist Wraps on the Bench Press.

I live in the Mid-West (South-Western Indiana...)

And now here's the Clinker:

I've never used Drugs and Strongly Doubt that I'll start at my age (56)...

Nonetheless, I am Philosophically Opposed to any and all forms of Drug Testing...

Its not a Deal-Breaker...

But is there a Raw Federation that isn't Drug-Tested?

you have lots of options. I think the UPA (Bill Crawford runs the fed) would be your best bet. APF is another good choice.

I had great experiences with 100% RAW.
You're only drug tested if you break a record in your weight group or age class. Out of like the 50+ competitors at my meet, only about 5 got drug tested

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Told a Huge Lie there—though unintentionally.

Since I believe in Honesty, let me rephrase:

I've used all sorts of Drugs in my Life.

I've just never used Anabolic Steroids and all the Drugs that I've done for well over a Decade were prescribed by a Physician.

O, and Thank y'all for the Info.
