USAPL National Championship by YA411O6


									                 USAPL National Championship
                      BID PROPOSAL OUTLINE

I would like to be considered for the 2011 USA Powerlifting Squat /
Deadlift / Push/Pull National Powerlifting Championships,
hosted in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

As you know, our team in Pennsylvania and our lifter growth in the last
three years have set a trend for our state to deserve National
Championship bid consideration.

We are running on average one USAPL event a month and we have
grown substantially as a state and region in the membership base in
USA Powerlifting.

We believe the number of events and the quality of our events should
open new opportunities for our part of the country to be considered for
this event.

We will run this on a single platform in the summer of 2011 in
Scranton, Pennsylvania. Our hotel will have plenty of room, to even
run a two platform event, if needed. With free shuttle and affordable
hotel lodging, we believe we offer a great location for this event.

We will dedicate an event web site for this event. It will be on-line for
over 12 months prior to the event. We run computerized scoring and
projections, along with closed circuit television to the warm-up area.
