We are proud to present the first annual Dirt and Diamonds Deadlift Competition. The competition is to be held at the old McLane Church located at 2319 West 38th Street, Erie, PA 16506. Proceeds will benefit the Girard Softball Boosters Program.

This will be a deadlift only competition following USPA Raw guidelines including allowed equipment and bars and plates.

We are limiting the meet to 20 male and 20 female lifters. Registration will be $50 per lifter and T-shirts will be available for $20 a piece. Lifters age 10 and up are welcome!

The top 3 male and top 3 female lifters based off DOTS will be paid out. Each 1st place will get $200, 2nd $150, and 3rd $100.

This meet welcomes lifters with all levels of experience. It is a good first meet for a new powerlifter to see how most powerlifting meets are run.

Payments/Donations will be accepted through Paypal, Cash app, or Venmo. Please contact Eric Rockwood to register or donate. If you have any questions or concerns you can contact Eric Rockwood at 716-378-7582

"True Powerlifters compete against themselves.  Self-growth and confidence come from learning to clap and hold respect for the person who just beat you.  I compete against myself."
