The first year of the AFA’s Kerckhaert-Liberty Intermediate Division in the National Competition was held in Reno and was a resounding success. This division was developed by the Rules Committee to encourage entry level participation in the competition and worked as planned. Competitors are eligible if they have never competed in the AFA open competition other than as a member of the 2 Person Draft Class. Intermediate competitors have a Journeyman shoe class, Qualifier class and Specialty Forging class and a high point award.
