I hate bashing federations, but I am not a fan of the APA. I have done a few and only one was a good experience. My top 3 federations are APF, USPA and R.A.W United. Brian Schwab and OBB always put on a good meet, but his meets are getting way too big for only one day. He needs to start having them over a two day span. I saw where he was going to cap it off at 60.? But he said there is over 80 lifters! That's going to be a LONG day! Be glad your not doing it
