The records application has officially been “fine tuned” and is now up to date. If you have broken records this past weekend and would like to apply for your records to make them official you may now do so. On the main page there will be a tab saying “MPA RECORD APPLICATION FORM”. Please click that tab and click the link to get started. Going forward with records if you have broken a record and would like to make it an official record you will have to go through this process within 7 days following the competition. This is also where you will need to go to request a certificate of your record(s).

This was the first time MPA used an “independent meet director” in Paul Taylor for planning, hosting, funding, and operating an MPA meet – kudos to Paul Taylor, JT Smith and the staff at Brickhouse Gym for planning and hosting a packed event, full of sponsors, fans, food and even a closed circuit television system!  They took care of registration, paperwork, refreshments, supplies and setup and did an excellent job.
