Arrow Novice Strongman contest in NC, Sept 25

This is the perfect strongman contest for beginners. The Strongest Man at the Y will be held Sept 25, 2010 at the Salisbury, NC YMCA. Events:

-bus pull
-Atlas stones (180lb, 235, 250)
-tire flip (600lb tire)
-farmer's walk (about 100lb per hand)
-Fingal Fingers

Weight classes:

under 175
176-210
211-250
251 & up

Entry fee is $25. I've done this contest before, it's well run and a good time. It starts at 11am and is finished by 3pm. All the events are light, I'm certain that most Crossfiters with have no problem with anything in the contest. For more info contact Kenny Seagle at (704) 636 0111 ext 223, email kseagle@rowanymca.com

I've never done Strongman before. If I can find a way to practice the events, I'm going to try to come. I'll see if I can bring some others with me. Looks fun.

I think that Coffee's Gym is into that. Some of my friends train up there from time to time. If I didn't just have a hernia, I'm going to try to make it up to Coffee's on the weekends. Strongman is something I've always wanted to try.

Thomas Bowman, maker of Tommy Tack strongman tacky will be there and he's supplying his tacky free for everyone to use on the stone event. He'll also have Tommy Tack tacky for sale, $9.95 for the 4oz jar, and $29.95 for the 16oz tub, by far the best deal anywhere on strongman tacky.
