At approximately $1000 (ish) per test it's too much for our meet directors to bear. Testing is done by CCES and is not dictated by the meet director. The point of the test is not to keep one individual meet 'clean' but to ensure the veracity of the entire sport in the country.
It may seem discriminatory to you and not reflective of actual results and you may be correct. There will always be flaws to a system. Since all our meets are tracked on a central national database, finding out if there are better lifts, is a mouse click away.
As to being discriminatory, we all pay to participate in this sport, like any other. That is just another fee associated with it. Pay it or don't pay it.
You certainly struck a nerve with me. The offhand comment that our system is ridiculous is a bit high handed. Like I stated above, many people work very hard to ensure things run smoothly just like with the USAPL. To have it dismissed with a wave of the hand by an outsider would rankle with many people I'm sure.
