Pro Raw Powerlifting

NAB

BSB 083253

ACC 183567623

 

Membership:. $100 per year

Competition entry:. $50 per comp

 

I have been running around the last few weeks organizing things to get Pro Raw going. Business is registered, account is up, sponsors have been contacted, I have a short list of venues.

 

First things first. As you guys know I've been putting on competitions for lifters for over 3 years, usually 3-4 comps a year. I have always delivered on my promises, and no sponsor has ever let me down, not once. In fact, they have provided more prizes than promised on most occasions.

 

Pro Raw will have cash prizes.....fact. There will definitely be a $1000 cash prize for each of the 4 weight classes. I am working on getting cash for the first three lifters in each of the 4 weight classes.

 

If I can land a huge sponsor, the cash will be greater. To land a big one I obviously need members. How I got so many prizes at AD10 was the fact I had so many lifters. A sponsor wants bang for his buck, obviously.

 

This is where I need your support. The quicker I can get members registered, the quicker I can get sponsors. I'm not the kind that approaches sponsors with promises, I like to present facts.

 

As far as venue goes, I can’t book one until I have an idea of how many lifters. I've pencilled in ones I think will do, but again, it depends on numbers.

 

To lift at ProRaw you have to be a paid up member, no guest lifters allowed. This situation was farcical at a few recent comps, with Record Keepers unsure who was paid up and able to set records, so you must be a member to lift.

 

My plan for how many comps? Well, there will be at least two and up to four.

 

I have plans of making it a Grand Prix like thing, with a series winner at the end of the year, and maybe another cash prize. This will of course depend on numbers and sponsors.

 

To make this as big as I hope, I'm going to need a commitment from everyone. I am not taking the place of any Federation in Australia, I am simply adding events. I will ensure there is no clash with CAPO, as my PTC lifters will continue to lift with them. Unfortunately PA will not allow lifters to compete in ProRaw, so I can’t make the same guarantees with them.

 

I will endeavour to keep dates separate so that spectators can view as many comps as possible, I have gone to PA comps and I have seen PA members at CAPO comps, this should continue, it’s the same sport after all.

 

The first ProRaw comp will be held on the Australia Day weekend. Venue and exact date will be announced later.

 

The only equipment allowed is belt, wrist wraps and knee wraps. Squats will be walked out and break parallel, benches will be paused.

 

The weight classes

 

80kg - 95kg - 110kg - 110kg+

 

I'm undecided about the women. As long as I can get 10 or so competing, I'll work out weight classes and prizes.

 

At the moment I am looking at 65kg - 75kg - 75kg+. This may change, any girls interested contact me on

Hmmm the Queensland bandwagon is moving too slow. Markos email me some flyers or whatever I can print out and photocopy at work (for free :rolleyes:) and I'll put small stacks on the counters of all the local gyms etc

Just found this. Here is an update

 

ProRawFour was run and won, we had $5000 prizemoney.

 

Odell Manuel squatted 350kg, benched 215kg and deadlifted 367.5kg, totalled 932.5kg@129kg, in a belt and wraps

 

ProRawFive is now an invitational event. Its not a Fed, its an event. Looks like we'll have $10,000 cash in prize money

 

To get an invite, you have to put up a total in an official comp between August 31 2012 and September 1 2013

 

You then have to be Top 10 in either the 80kg class/95kg class/110kg class/110kg+ class

 

Here is the Top 10 as of today. This will change dramaticaly before September 1 2013
