Default Adamite's Second Attempt - Help Me Out

Hey guys. So last year I got my numbers up real high in hopes of competing in my first powerlifting meet. But once it got closer to the date I realized that I wasn't making enough money to buy equipment, pay for a membership, and pay for the meet. But now I have a new job that pays a whole lot better and I'd like to give it another try.

Now Powerlifting Watch shows a meet near me in November. (Though it's not shown on the AAU website.)
My current stats are: squat 275lbs, Deadlift 245lbs, and bench at 185. Current goals are 315 for squat and dead and 225 for bench. (My guess is I'll meet these, if not exceed them, by November.)
I'm currently running BTB's 2 day powerbuilding workout from M&S. (Monday & Thursday.)

Now I've got a few things to sort out, which is where you guys come in. How do I determine what my goals should be for my meet? What equipment should I get for the meet and for training? Is AAU a good federation? What else do I need to do or acquire before going on this journey?

This means a lot to me, I was crushed last year when I realized I couldn't compete. I felt as if all my hard work for nothing and I had let down all you guys at Muscle and Brawn. And ever since then my training has been real crappy and I've been very inconsistent. And this won't change unless I have goals and something to work towards. So I appreciate all you guys here at MAB for all you guys do and all the encouragement and knowledge you guys share. So thank you so much.

Just train hard, sleep well, and eat right. Once you hit your goals of 315, 225, and 315 - shoot for 320, 230, 320 ... just aim to get stronger, go to the meet in a singlet, and crush it.

EDIT - if the program you're running is yielding results, stick with it. Don't start reading a ton on powerlifting and meet prep and get any wild hairs up your ass and jump on some Conjugate/Starting Strength/HIIT hybrid. Stick with what works and get strong as fuck.

First meet. Concentrate of hitting your lifts....then your goals should be a bigget total at every meet after that.

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.

I can't offer advice given my experience level, and that annoys me considering all you've helped me.

I offer you the best of luck with it though man, keep up the good work, you're doing great.
