I was on Rawpowerlifting.com and i saw that the world championships were going to be in NC, where im at. I think this would be awsome to watch but it doesnt say anywhere how much it costs to get in for people who want to watch and stuff. Anyone have any ideas, id really like to go to this, plus its raw lifting which i really like.

You might want to double check that it was in pounds....a lot of PL comps are in kilos, in which case you got a LOT of catching up to do ;)

Those numbers can't be right... I'd smoke half the national records.

Who's going to be at this comp? I haven't heard of that federation so either they are new or not that big. Maybe that's why the records are so low?

Says they've only been around since '99, so its a fairly new organization.
