Please make sure to attend the rules meeting Saturday or Sunday (the day you lift on.) at 8:15 am. We go over the rules for the 3 lifts and cover many other important information about the meet. The lifters who miss the rules meeting are usually the ones who get upset about something later on.

There are absolutely no refunds or transferring of entry fees to another lifter or future UPA meet.  So please don’t ask. Please let us know if you are dropping out of the meet.

The Grand River Center will have concessions open for this meet.

I will post flights on Facebook UPA Events on Friday night and Saturday night.
