Dear all

It is planned to continue with the running of the Weightlifting competition in Townsville on 11th April even though the NQ Games has been cancelled. This will of course need to be reconsidered if limits to numbers of  people attending indoor gatherings are altered from the current level. Entries can continue to be made online via the QWA website: A $20 entry fee will apply, refundable if the event is cancelled. If this isn't set up when you register please make payment via:
