Dear International Lifter, Coach and Referee  -- PA is now calling for nominations for selection to teams for the  --
 
Commonwealth Championships, Richmond, Canada, December 1 -6
 
Asia/Oceania Championships, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, December 13-20.
 
 
Both events are all age-groups, Powerlifting and Bench Press. Australia can field single teams in the Commonwealth Championships, we are awaiting confirmation but likely there will be double teams in the Asia/Oceania, as in 2014.
 
Be aware that it has been arranged with the Uzbekistan government that visas will be granted on arrival, no charge i.e.effectively "no visa".
 
 
Also we announce here that PA has a new travel agency, Travel Emporium, contact Kate Zimmer -- see below. As always, all travel bookings must be made through the nominated agent, nowTravel Emporium and payments made through the auditable PA bank account.
 
 
All those who wish to be considered for selection as lifters, Coaches or Referees must lodge the usual $1000 deposit with PA via ---
 
Commonwealth Bank 
 
Powerlifting Australia Ltd
 
BSB    064012
 
Account   10182006
 
This will be refunded if you are not selected and applied to all expenses if you are selected; however if you are selected and withdraw any costs incurred wil be taken from the deposit.
 
 
Qualifying is as advised on the PA site i.e., in essence -- A Grade Open, B Juniors, C SubJunior, have credit card Masters. Coaches must be NCAS Level 1, Referees Cat 1 or II. Selections beyond that will, as per PA's Regulations on team selections, be based primarily on performance inthe 2015 Australian Championship for your age-group.
 
Also if selected you must follow the various team rules as to uniform, coach allocation, travel arrangements and so on; if this is at all challenging for you, avoid angst for all and do not nominate.
 
Travel for both these events are in peak season and early bookings are advisable. Hence nominations and lodgement of deposit is called for by this Wednesday, August 19th. and the first round of selections will be made then. Nominations and selections can be made after that time, but once selected lifters cannot be displaced from the team.
 
Any specific travel enquiries should now be made direct to Kate; however she can only make bookings once it is confirmed by PA that your $1000 deposit has been lodged.

Dear Athlete,
 
Congratulations on your nomination for either the ‘Asia/Oceania Raw Powerlifting Championships, Tashkent December 13-20 2015’ OR the ‘Commonwealth Powerlifting and Bench Pressing Championships, BC Canada 30/11-06/12 2015’:
 
We are excited to be helping you with your travel planning. There are two ways that you will be able to choose to make your booking- these come down to your preference, your date choice and your choice of payment.
 
These two ways are 'Instant Purchase' or 'Group Fare Flexi Payment'.
 
Instant purchase: rates allow you to choose the dates you NEED to travel on. Instant purchase rates vary every day and can often jump a couple of times a day without our control. These rates depend on how fast you as the athlete are in contact with me and can confirm with full payment. Keep in consideration with these instant purchase rates for both Tashkent and Canada, that travelling in December before Christmas is the most popular month of the year to travel, hence we do not expect these fares to last more than a couple of days, or that the one airline who released them, will allocate no more than a few seats to that price.
 
 
'Group Fare Flexi Payment': This special fare we have negotiated for both Tashkent and Canada allows you to have the freedom to pay off the fare within the fare ticketing rules.
 
 
Tickets and deposits are non-refundable.
 
 
‘Asia/Oceania Raw Powerlifting Championships, Tashkent December 13-20 2015’
 
‘Instant purchase’: These rates for Tashkent are ranging just under $2000 return and above at this stage.
 
'Group Fare Flexi Payment': We have negotiated a special fare for ‘Powerlifting Australia’, with ‘Asiana Airlines’, that is $2590 total including taxes. We are running this ‘Group Fare’ in two departure fleets depending on your lifting category.
They are 10-21dec or the 13-21 December.
 
For this , ‘Group Fare Flexi Payment’, the details will be as follows: 
 
10 December: SYD-Incheon Korea 10:30-19:00.
 
Over night stay in Korea- hotel provided and is included in fare.
 
11 December: Incheon-Tashkent: depart; 16:50-20:20
 
21 December: Tashkent-Incheon: depart 22:20-8.50
 
Ability to use club lounge at airport for a fee of USD$60 per person if desired or use of hotel for the day for approx AUD $70.00.
 
22 December: Icheon-Syd: depart 20:20-08:20.
 
 
 
13 December: SYD-Incheon Korea 10:30-19:00.
 
Overnight stay in Korea- hotel provided and is included in fare.

21 December: Tashkent-Incheon: depart 22:20-8.50
 
Ability to use club lounge at airport for a fee if desired.
 
22 December: Icheon-Syd: depart 20:20-08:20.
 
 
 
‘Commonwealth Powerlifting and Bench Pressing Championships, BC Canada 30/11-06/12 2015’:
 
‘Instant purchase’: These rates for Canada are ranging from just under $1900- $2500. Again these fares have stop over’s in each direction.
 
 
'Group Fare Flexi Payment': Again we have negotiated a special fare for ‘Powerlifting Australia’, with ‘Canada Airlines’, that is $1793.
We are running this ‘Group Fare’ in two departure fleets depending on your lifting category. They are 28th November-  or the 13-21 December.
 
 
For this , ‘Group Fare Flexi Payment’, the details will be as follows: 
 
 
28 November:  SYD-Vancouver: 12:15-07:25
 
 
07 December: Vancouver-SYD: 23:40-10:15
 
 
30 November: SYD-Vancouver: 12:15-07:25
 
07 December: Vancouver-SYD: 23:40-10:15
 
 
If your dates do not work within this special fare we have negotiated, don’t stress, we will do all in our power to get you on a flight that is the cheapest and best available flight path on offer in that moment for the instant purchase rate on that day. Please note, that these individual plans will have separate terms and conditions with the ticket then those of the ‘Group Fare Flexi Payment’. If you do not live in Sydney but want to make use of the ‘Group Fare Flexi Payment’ option I can simply add an extra flight to Sydney before your departure from your location. I can also offer my services to help plan little trips around your competition should you want to explore the region that you are competing in, be it a tour or extending your vacation to another destination etc. For example, December is perfect in Vancouver for heading over to the snow fields in Whistler or Banff or taking in the stunning Lake Louise. Whilst in Tashkent we are offering day tours exploring the cities markets and mosques for AUD $70, (4 people per tour minimum) perhaps even exploring  the mountains through a tour through Uzbekistan for a longer stay. I can help in all areas in travel should you desire it to make use of the areas that you will be in for these competitions.
 
 
Looking forward to helping you all and making this trip one to remember!  
 
 
Kind regards,
 
 
Kind regards,
 
Kate Zimmer
