    1. Ron,

      Here are a couple of suggestions on how to get started in
      weightlifting:

      1. Find a facility with the necessary equipment for weightlifting. USA Weightlifting has a list of member clubs on their site.
      2. Get in touch with some of the clubs in your area and find out what experienced coaching options they have for beginning lifters.

      There are some on-line (self-taught) resources available as well if you do a search for “beginning olympic weightlifting.”

  1. I mailed in my entry on Monday 11-10 and noticed that you have 296 entries already as of 3:42pm on 11-12 and my name is not yet on your list. So, if I don’t make your cut, will you refund my $85 entry fee? Please advise me on this!

    1. Bill,

      For fairness to those who used (on-time) paper submissions like yours, entries that were postmarked prior to November 12 will be added to the start list, and we will not draw from any (upcoming) stand-by lists until the number of active entries drops below 300 (due to cancellations).
