NY, will be fun....

Where in NY and when?  I've never been to a powerlifting meet before. 

Apologies to BLK for hijacking your journal for a post or two.  ;)

Oh my F'ING God!  My Inzer belt and wraps finally came in the mail after nearly 4 weeks of waiting.  NO F'ING BUCKLE!  They forgot to put the F'ing buckle in the box!  I just called and gave them hell about it.  The woman promised to get a buckle out by UPS today.  I guess I'll end up going another damn week without using the belt that I need to use in competition.  Ucking lovely.

What belt did you get? How is the buckle not aleady on the belt? That seems like pretty shitty customer service to have to wait 4 weeks and not get what you expected.  :-\

Ah, I looked at their site and it looked like the levers were permanently attached from the factory.  :doh:
