Long term vision to be involved in USAWA for at least 5 years, establish club to compete in hybrid meets, postal meets and Colorado events, take a leadership role with USAWA and try to visit Frank's, Clark's, Dino Gym, Buffville, Habecker's Gym, KC Strongman, I.A.W.A. (UK), All-Round Weightlifting Australia, support new clubs and competitors.

USAWA has recently had around 100 members primarily in and around Kansas City, Walpole, Mass. and Lebanon, PA.  There has recently been a nice uptick in Kentucky and Tennessee.  Colorado has had several athletes over the years including Rex, RJ, Dan W, Jarrod, Kim V, and Crystal.  There have been a few record days held out here.  While I am not the best individual to grow the sport, I can at least serve as a foothold for interested athletes.
