THE BATTLE ON THE BORDER IS FULL!!!

 

NEWS NEWS NEWS

  3/2/2015:

 

The roster is officially closed.  We were able to pull up several lifters who were previously on the Alternate List, but it is now time to shut it down.   Unfortunately, we need to close it to any further changes so all the names can be placed into the computer.  Send me an email if you would like to add additional divisions.  We can still do that.

 

 1/20/2015:

 

The States of North Carolina and South Carolina have new official websites!  North Carolina's site can still be found at www.carolinapowerlifting.com, however South Carolina has a new address.  Although www.palmettopowerlifting.com is still up to view, we will be transitioning to www.USAPLSC.com.  This site is still under construction, but most pages can be navigated through.  Please let me know what you would like to see in your State's website. 

 

The South Carolina records from 2014 and earlier have been retired and the new records are being uploaded to the website via www.goheavy.net daily.   Look for the Battle on the Border website to undergo a similar facelift in the upcoming months as well.

 

1/9/2015:

 

The Battle on the Border is full at 108 lifters!  All entry forms that we receive at this point will be placed on the Alternate Lifter Roster.  I am very proud to announce that the women have once again come out in force.  We have 29 women competing at this year's Battle! 

Although the Battle roster is now complete and final, we always receive entry forms that did not make it in time.  With a two and a half months of time ahead of us before the actual lifting begins, injuries and unforeseen circumstances do occur that force lifters to pull out.  We will once again put together an alternate list of lifters to be called if a lifter who is currently on the roster cannot make it to this year's Battle.  Please call or send me an email if you would like to be added to the alternate list for the Battle on the Border.  In addition, if you are on the roster and CANNOT lift this year, please send me an email so we can get another lifter into the meet.

Happy New Year!   March 21, 2015 is coming up quickly, so start your training cycles!  We need powerlifters from North and South Carolina to step up and take the challenge to lift at the Battle on the Border!   The last eight years have been HUGE successes with each year being larger than the previous!   This year we will be once again holding the Battle on the Border in Denver, NC.  The Lincoln Charter School is a really fantastic venue and is in close proximity to Charlotte, NC.  There are several restaurants and hotels in the area and should be an easy trip for both North and South Carolina lifters.  

Registration is $55 for the Bench press competition and $60 for the full power meet.  This continues to be one of the best bargains going in powerlifting today!  Again, we will be limiting the total number of lifters to 100, and for those who postmark their registration by March 1st, they will be given a free Battle on the Border T-shirt.  FYI, we were full be the first week of February last year.  We are currently filling up faster than in any previous year.

In addition to having an open powerlifting and bench championship, lifters will be representing their home States in competition for bragging rights and a Battle on the Border plaque that is passed on from year to year to the State that wins.  North Carolina won last year's competition.  The plaque is awarded to the State with the highest total to be determined by adding the top 2 powerlifting WILKS scores (1 lightweight and 1 heavyweight) along with the top 2 bench press scores.  We will do this for both the equipped and RAW categories for a total of 8 lifters to represent each State.

The Battle on the Border will again be awarding custom medals as well as best lifter trophies to the best lifter of the bench press and full powerlifting divisions as well as the best Master, Woman and Teen lifter.

 

Sign up and experience a family friendly atmosphere and talk with and learn among some of the best lifters across the Carolinas.  Also, if anyone would be willing to help out with this event, please send me an email.  Those lifters who volunteer to spot and load at one of our meets held in the Carolinas will be allowed to lift in a future USAPL NC or SC event for free. This will be limited to one division in either full power or bench only and only in our States.  Our organization exists as a group of members who work together to make great meets possible.  If you are not planning to compete at the Battle this year, PLEASE volunteer and bring others to help as well.  The Battle on the Border has been very successful over the last 8 years with the much appreciated help of our lifters.   As it continues to move forward, it is up to all of us to help maintain its success.

NEW POLICY FOR USAPL NC and SC

After talking with Jennifer Thompson, State Chair for NC, we have decided to implement the following new policy for our States of North and South Carolina:

Starting with the SC State Championship this coming December, those lifters who volunteer to spot and load at one of our meets held in the Carolinas will be allowed to lift in a future USAPL NC or SC event for free. This will be limited to one division in either full power or bench only and only in our States. Please contact Jon Mouzon or Jennifer Thompson for more information. We are still in need for spotters and loaders at our upcoming SC State meet so give me a call at 864-844-0083 if you want to be included.

 

11/7/2014:

 

We have received the first entry for the Battle on the Border!  We are over 4 months away at this point and the excitement is beginning to build for this event.  This year we are only taking the first 100 lifters registered, so PLEASE get your entry forms in early as spots will be filling up quickly.

 

The roster is posted and will be updated periodically as entry forms come in.

 

Sign up and experience a family friendly atmosphere and talk with and learn among some of the best lifters across the Carolinas.  Also, if anyone would be willing to help out with this event, please send me an email.  The USAPL in South Carolina is growing and definitely heading in the right direction, however this cannot be a one or two-man operation.  Our organization exists as a group of members who work together to make great meets possible.  If you are not planning to compete at the Battle this year, PLEASE volunteer and bring others to help as well.  The Battle on the Border has been very successful over the last eight years with the much appreciated help of our lifters.   As we continue to move forward, it is up to all of us to help maintain its success.

The Battle on the Border Entry form is up on the site and ready to download.  Please be sure to place your weight class on the form in kilos, not pounds.

Starting in January, the USAPL SC and NC records will reflect the new weight classes.  Unfortunately, the number of classes are being reduced for both men and women.  Some classes will essentially remain unchanged, however, there are a few classes that will be combined.  For example, the 165 lbs. (75.0 kg) and 181 lbs. (82.0 kg) classes will be combined and the higher lift will claim the record for the new class of 183 lbs. (83.0 kg).

 

If a lifter can prove that he or she was lighter than the new weight class and would like to claim the lighter record, please submit that claim via email with the documented proof to Jon Mouzon at clemsonbench@gmail.com if it is a SC record and to Jennifer Thompson at 132poundsofpower@gmail.com if it is a NC record.

 

The upcoming SC State Championship as well as the next Battle on the Border meets will be using the new weight classes.  Please take note of them above.  Feel free to give me a call at 864-844-0083 or send me an email at the above address with any concerns.
