May 23 & 24, 2020 UPA Raw Pro-Am
It is with great consideration and many long discussions, I have made the decision that the May 23 & 24 UPA Raw Pro-Am will have to be cancelled.
Due to so many unknowns with the Covid-19 outbreak and Governor Reynolds mandating social distancing of less than 10 in a social gathering through the end of April (Possibly longer), I feel it is best to inform you now.
I understand many lifters are not even able to go to the gym to prepare for this meet, leading me to the inevitable decision to cancel. Believe me when I say, this is not an easy decision, nor one I can recall I have ever had to make in 17 years of running powerlifting meets.
At this time, all lifters that have already guaranteed their spot in this meet, you will have a credit to any UPA meet that Bill Carpenter runs through December 31, 2021. If you ordered shirts or any extra divisions you paid for will also be credited to a meet of mine, of your choice.
As of now the July 18 & 19 UPA Iron Battle on the Mississippi and the Nov. 14 & 15 UPA Power Weekend are still on for 2020. I already signed contracts with the Grand River Center for the following meets in 2021 – April 24 & 25, July 17 & 18 and Nov. 13 & 14.
We are all going through this together. This is a tough time for all of us, but we will get through this together.
Lastly, if anyone has reserved rooms at the Grand Harbor Hotel, please be sure to call and cancel.
Please stay healthy and I will see you at future UPA meets of mine.
Bill Carpenter – UPA President
