Well I must say it was another great day for USPA South Carolina. The meet was great!! Ran very smooth and enjoyed getting to watch all the lifters today. A big thanks to Pro Performance Athletics for hosting the meet. Also a HUGE thank you to my spotter/loaders today as they rocked it. And also my refs, without all of you it would not be possible to do these meets. Today we got to see many lifters that were new and came in an dominated things. A lot of state records set and big PR’s and totals. I also enjoyed one our youngest lifters. A 9 year old that was amazing and poured it on the platform along with one of our oldest lifters who did amazing as well. And lastly a big shout out to Upstate Barbell and Bamabrick Squad for helping these lifters and. bringing great energy. Always a great day when Jeff B. and Stacy Burr are in the house. Lots of energy and laughs. Hope to see all of you at the Open in February or at The Firm In April. We will be adding more meets drug test and non. If anyone would like us to come to your area please send me a message. Hope everyone made it home safely. Great jobs to everyone.
Wow what can I say! This was such a great weekend. We had the SC states test and non tested this weekend and I had a blast. I met new lifters made new friends along with seeing old friends. Every meet gets better and better. The atmosphere was over the top. We had a few minor bumps but our lifters were patient and understanding and made the day fun. There are so many of you that I could praise but I want to really send a shout out to a few. Thanks to all my staff for doing an amazing job. Monique Hayes, Anthony Barnett Calhoun, Kathy and Mark Brewer, Kevin Russell, Myron Dunn, Alecia, David Huckleby. You all are the best. Gene Buckingham who did a fantastic job along with the other spotters. A huge thank you to Tricia King and Dave Falvey for spotting and loading for me today after you had lifted on Saturday. You guys are the best and I could not ask for a better bunch. And also a shout out to Stacy Burr for not only your friendship but your dedication to our sport and the help with pushing our meets and bringing your lifters to compete. I have never met such a good hearted coach, friend, lifter and promoter in all my days. Thank you for all you do. I could go on and on but thank everyone who makes the sport great!!! — with Gary Emrich and 6 others.
