The following are testimonials from lifters that have competed in past events:
"John just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the meet today. We just got home and I had to send a note to thank you and the entire staff for making an old man's day. Being new to this I was very nervous but everyone bent over backward to make me feel at home from you, judges and staff to the other lifters. Thank you again and looking forward to seeing you in August."

Vinny Gencarelli - 2017 Winter War
I just wanted to thank for putting on such a good meet. I’ve been in the sport for about 15 years and that was the most organized meet that I’ve been involved with....Thanks again John, I had a blast and learned a lot and am looking forward to my next meet.
Bill Schemel - 2017 Winter War
"When I received an email from John two days before the meet of a hand drawn map of how to get to the meet venue, because maps wasn't quite good enough, I knew it was going to be a good meet. Boy did he not disappoint. Weigh-ins went smooth and transitioned nicely into getting rack heights. The warmup room. So nice. I can't describe how nice it is to warm up with equipment that closely resembles the platform equipment. Timing was on point as well. I didn't have a handler at this meet and I didn't need one. They had TVs set up in the warm up room which allowed me to quickly asses when I would be lifting so I could time my warmups appropriately. Thank you so much, John, for making Delaware's first meet in 26 years an amazing experience."
