The Canadian weightlifting national championships are being held in Edmonton, Alberta this weekend. I think there were a couple people on here from Edmonton (or there used to be, anyways), figured I'd give a heads up on the opportunity to come down and check out some of Canada's top lifters, show some support for your fellow iron enthusiasts, make some inappropriate jokes about the snatch and clean and jerk.
There's a couple of olympians on the start list, so there should be some big numbers put up. Men's weight classes up to 105 lift Saturday, all the women and the superheavyweight men lift on Sunday. I think there's a $5 entry fee or something (apparently we're too popular so we're trying to further discourage people coming to watch by charging them to do so).
