    Anyone going to WABDL Worlds?

    It's a big meet, so I thought maybe some people on here might be going. I've got my tickets for it already so I'll be there for sure. It would be cool to meet there if a few of us are going.

    It's in Anaheim, CA.

    I may be going. Are you competing Guido? By tickets I assume you mean plane tickets. I did not see any tickets for sale on their site.

    I'll be competing in both bench and deadlift. And yes, by tickets I meant plane tickets.

    You have to be qualified to go by having placed top 3 in a WABDL meet in the past year. Have you qualified?

    Does that mean no spectators?

    Unfortunately, I just got back into lifting, and even if I tried I could not qualify.

    No I believe spectators are allowed. Might be a small $5 fee or so. Would still be worth it, though!

    I had no plans of going this year..........But I bought my plane tickets today! I still need to send my entry and get my room. I have not made up my mind what class I will lift in yet. I am qualified for 198,220,242 and 259! I will most likely lift 220. If anyone goes look me up.

    Cool, Wayne. Are you lifting submaster now or will you be doing Class 1 or Open?

    Wayne, Class 1, Hhhahhhhaaaaaa. I think he has been booted out of the Class 1 division. I'll be going to this meet too. I hadn't decided if I was going or not, but Wayne needs a liftoff person. I think Wayne will be lifting in the P&F division on Thursday. I lift in the "old fat guy" division on Friday. I have to get my World record back. Tom Manno "chipped" me with 1.1 lbs. I'll BRING it to this meet and SMOKE his record:evillaugh

    Yeah I have never been able to lift class 1.

    I will most likely lift 220 P&F open and Submaster on thursday.

    This better be my 600+ meet or I will be pissed and the guys at the gym will make fun of me! I should have done it a long time ago.

    A couple of the guys I work out with may be competing. I think they're trying to figure out if they want to pay for the trip or not. Mostly they compete in the APF a WAPL. We had a one-off WABDL meet earlier this year a few guys qualified.
