2019 NEW HAMPSHIRE POWERLIFTING MEETS

USA Powerlifting Monadnock SummerSlam — Day of the Meet

Hello Lifters,
We are one week away from the 2019 USA Powerlifting Monadnock SummerSlam on August 17 in Peterborough! I hope that each of you have had an excellent summer and are looking forward to the meet. 

To view the final lifting roster, go to LiftingCast.com and select the 2019 USA Powerlifting Monadnock SummerSlam.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY OF THE MEET

Once you arrive at the venue, there are a few lifter stations that you must visit in order to get ready to compete. Here’s what you need to do. 

Sign-in at the Registration Table.

Please have your 2019 USA Powerlifting membership card and a state driver’s license or other form of photo ID ready to show the volunteer at the Registration Table in order to gain access into the meet and proceed to the next lifter station. The Registration Table will open at 6:30 am.

Go to the Weigh-in Station. 

  • Session 1 lifters must be at the weigh-in station by 7 am. Women’s lifting begins at 9 am.
  • Session 2 lifters must be at the weigh-in station by 11:30 am. Men’s lifting begins at 1:30 pm.

USA Powerlifting uses lot numbers to determine the order of weigh-ins. If the referee calls your lot number and you are not there to be weighed-in, you will automatically go to the end of the line for your session (not just your flight) before having the opportunity to be weighed-in again.

BEST PRACTICE: If you have a low lot number (in other words, you are going to be one of the first people to be weighed-in once weigh-ins start), wait until after you weigh-in before having your equipment checked and getting your rack heights.

Go to the Equipment Check Table.

The volunteer who is there will inspect all your gear to see if it is USA Powerlifting-approved. To find out before the meet if the equipment you are using qualifies, go to https://www.usapowerlifting.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/USAPL-Rulebook-2017.pdf.

  • Session 1 lifters may go directly to the platform to get their rack heights before the start of the meet.
  • Session 2 lifters must wait until the Session 1 deadlifts start so that the combo/rack can be moved off of the platform for you to get your rack heights.

Go get your rack heights.

  • Session 1 lifters may go directly to the platform to get their rack heights before the start of the meet. 
  • Session 2 lifters must wait until the Session 1 deadlifts start so that the combo/rack can be moved off of the platform for you to get your rack heights.

If you need help getting your rack heights, please let a volunteer know and someone will assist you.

NOTE: All youth and teens who are competing under the age of 17 must have a parent or guardian present with them during their weigh-in

GENERAL AUDIENCE ADMISSION: $10 per person, including coaches and trainers. Children 12 and under are free.

The Friends of ConVal will be onsite to provide food and beverages in their snack bar.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. 

Stay Strong,

Lizz Smullen
USA Powerlifting New Hampshire State Chair
