Are you in contention for a spot at the World Championships?
I don't think the BAWLA would know about your extracurricular activities. Is the IPF going to follow such a 'high profile' lifter as yourself?
The IPF and it's branches are organizations where you can run for office and influence policy. They are not like other organizations who are 'ruled' by one person.
Instead of griping about rules, join the federation and vote for individuals who will vote like yourself.
I don't agree with everything the USAPL does or how things are run, but it is the best organization in my opinion.
Fahd, have you even competed?
I don't agree with your line of reasoning. And you strike me as someone who whines about problems that don't pertain to you instead of doing something about them.
