Caledonia Entry re-opened

The entry for the Caledonia Championship has been reopened.

After a meeting of committee members today its been decided to reopen the entries for Caledonia and run a second platform in order to satisfy the demand from our members, this will be first come first served.

Once confirmed you are entered you will have 1 week to pay the entry fee.

Entry Form

Please note there is currently an entry cap of 80 lifters for this event.

the Alba Open in Inverness in June will have a cap of 40 and will not increase as this will be the maximum amount of lifters that we can accommodate at the venue.

We apologise for any inconvenience the recent changes have made.
