i like the idea of all raw just bar n chalk but the idea of drug free power lifting is about as good as the idea of drug free bodybuilding it sounds nice on paper but we all know the truth.

I've been to contests that claim to be "drug free" and out of 40 some competitors, only 3 get tested and they pick some lady, a guy who got 4th place and a teenager who doesn't look like he could afford the juice even if he wanted to take it. Meanwhile, all the top lifters breeze through untested and some of them loudly proclaim on the internet "I did it drug free!"

Subject: 100% RAW Powerlifting Update
The Worlds are approaching very fast. As you all know this year we are having the Full Powerlifting Worlds in Las Vegas at the newly renovated Riviera Hotel & Casino on October 17-18th. We will also be holding the West Coast Single Lift Championships in conjunction with this event. We have some very special deals going on for the lifters who are interested in lifting in this event. The early bird special has just 2 more days left if you want to take advantage of this event. You will get a free cross-over and t-shirt which is a $55 savings. Make sure you have your entries post marked by August 1st in order to take advantage of this. The Riviera has given 100% RAW a terrific deal and the room rates are only $89/night. When you call please make sure to mention 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation in order to get this rate. There was some confusion about the block and number of days but this has been straighten out. If anyone tells you there is no block or you need to rent 3 nights in order to get this rate please ask for their name and then ask to speak to a supervisor. You can also call me with their name and I will take care of this. We need names in order to find out who is saying the wrong information. But I think we finally got things taken care of. Please make your room reservations as soon as possible so we can find out if we need more rooms and to ensure we get the best rooms. There are 4-5 towers and they want to keep 100% RAW all together in the same tower in the most recently renovated tower. We already have more than 50 lifter pre-registered so get in your entry forms soon so your not cut off and be left out of this event. To print off an entry form go to our website site and click on the logo on the home page. For the West Coast entry form go under schedule and click on the entry form from there. On the original entry form I post it had the Riviera hotel number as 800-634-3414, this went to the wrong department. This is the correct number here to reserve a room, 1-800-634-6753. It has been updated on the website and if you printed off the old entry form please use this new number.
The platform will be equipped this year by Nebula Equipment. These are the same guys who supplied equipment to MHP's Kings of the Bench & Clash of the Titans pro show in Dallas, which is ran by Sean Katterle or Hardcore Powerlifting.com and which takes place at The Ronnie Coleman Classic Expo. Sean will also be at our worlds in Las Vegas, running a booth island as both the owner of Hardcore Powerlifting and as an official distributor for House Of Pain Ironwear.
Yes we will have World Championship belts available for the Overall Lightweight, Heavyweight, Master and Female lifters.
The best deal we have is that this year we have signed a contract with a ring company to make World Championship rings for anyone who wins 1st place in their age group or division. These rings will be made by the same people who make the World Championship Super Bowl rings which will be there for viewing. There will be a few different designs for you to choose from. They will also have pendants for the wives to match the ring as well as watches and participant rings for guys who do not win 1st place. This company will be at both World events in Las Vegas and Norfolk.
The single Lift Worlds will be in Norfolk, VA again this year on November 7-8. We had a great turnout last year we decided to return Back to Brute Strength Gym for a 2nd year in a row. The same deals will be in effect for the single lifts as the full power so make sure to get your forms in asap to get the early bird special. Go to the website to print off an entry form for either meet.
Read the letter for the single lift worlds to see how many World Championship belts we will be providing for the bench, deadlift and Curl. When you click on the entry form there is an intro for what is going to happen at this event for awards.
we are looking for our sponsors for the 2009 World Championship belts. If you have a business or know of someone willing to sponsor a belt they are $250 each. They will get their name on the belt as the Class sponsor for that weight class. 4 free tickets to the event, name on the t-shirts and banner and 1 year free advertising on our website. We are looking for 20 sponsors this year for all of the belts. Please contact me at email@example.com if you or someone you know is interested.
Congratulations to Paul Gillott our Arizona state chairman for running an awesome event in Prescott on July 18. He had more than 70 lifters for the Southwest Regional's which was an incredible competition. I went there to help out and had the time of my life in Prescott. I met some of the nicest people there and everyone was so polite and very helpful. Paul has a great thing going on down in Arizona and if you ever get a chance to lift in one of his meet you need to do it. Well run efficient meet with lots of quality lifters. There was more than 40 National records broken on this day.
