This was the opening year for this new master event run by the Caledonian WLC in Burnaby. Two members represented the club.
Both lifters used this event as a test for their current strength before the BC Provincial Masters in March which is important for the qualifying for the World Masters in Montreal this August.
Kenneth Lo came with a positive state of mind and made lifts of 100 snatch and 115 in the clean and jerk to give a total of 215 and first place for the gold medal in the 81kg class
Mike Cartwright made the new 81KG bodyweight class and lifter well for a 6 for 6 performance with a snatch of 93 and clean and jerk of 110 to give a total of 203 for the gold medal in his age group and best lifter award.
