QWA News Update - August 2014

26 August 2014

Firstly, welcome to all of our new members. So far this year, the QWA has registered 215 new members. The total count at present is 414. That’s 70 more than at this time last year, so we’re on track to reach a new high of 500 registered members by the end of 2014!

We’re currently working on a “New Member Information” page for the QWA website that will welcome new members to the wonderful world of weightlifting and provide some general information and answers to some frequently asked questions.

This should be available next month. In the meantime, if you can’t find the information you’re looking for on the QWA Website or AWF Website contact the QWA office and we’ll do our best to answer any questions.


With so many events happening over the next few months, it’s easy to lose track of closing dates and misplace entry forms. The next major “due date” is this Friday, 29th August.

Here’s a quick reminder of what’s coming up:
