We are getting ready for our annual Sorinex open house "Summer Strong" day of strength, bbq, and fellowship. After the success last year I would cordially like to invite any of my grip bretheren to attend. All the grip toys you have always heard about will be on hand and impromptu feats and record attemps will abound. In the spirit of my 59th birthday celebration and 48 years of grip strength involvement I would in addition like to offer a prize of 500.00 for the first one out there willing and successful in a officially sanctioned Ironmind certification of a #4 closing at the event. I know many out there are in great condition this time of year and it would provide a good opportunity for success. Any people interested in attending or trying the #4 need to do TWO things, RSVP richard@sorinex and FULLY arrange with Ironmind for the cert attempt on the 27th of June 2009 as per rules and regulations.We will provide the place and prize..you bring the horsepower! Thanking you all in advance for another year of joy watching the world of grip grow! You can see link attached for more information. Richard Sorin

That looks like it's going to be FUN! To bad it's on my son's birthday, otherwise I'd be there.

I'll try the COC #4 in a few years. ;)

Not enough notice for me Richard otherwise I'd have focussed on this as opposed to Chad's event.

I'll be in attendance. Don't think I'll be ready to ccs a #4. I will be contacting Randall about a #3.5 ccs cert for that weekend if that is alright with you Richard. It will be a great weekend.

I hope someone will be able to do the CCS close. $500 is a big motivator, it may be enough for some of the #4 closers here to get that last 1/4 on a CCS! Best of luck to anyone who goes :rock

Would love to see a CCS on a #4 ! Maybe someone will come out of nowhere and just prove it can be done.
Best of luck to everyone!

Damn it doesn't get any better than that, any of you 3.5 guys should go for this. I know that by next year Frank / Magnus would be able to do that no problem, he did close a 3.5 right out of the package. That kid is a freak in a very good way :rock

Best of luck at your gathering Richard, I hope it's successful and filled with good folk, food, and laughs. All the best from Canada!

I've pointed them both towards it. But it would cost PS the 500 in air fares alone.

that is what i was thinking. air fare from over the pond will
be a factor.

how about getting some airline sponsors? this would
require qualifying at home before the trip is covered.

this will take much work but it can be done.

how 'bout it. let's get creative, forget the box.

Two points...
I am not entirely sure what air miles are or whether they are transferable but that may be somehing to look into if someone has air miles they are not using.
Also, Mr Sorin - Are you able to shut a 3.5 or a 4 and if you do so on the day will you be rewarding yourself too? :happy

I have also got a friend with a father who works at heathrow, it is a long shot and she is mid exams but I ring and ask...

This is paul (does not let me sign in on steves computer)

Personally not interested in this one, 500 dollars would make for a loss in money due to flying over, but even if this was not the case, it's not enough time, i have not done any credit card set closes for months an still have a bruised palm. I would need to rest my palm for a couple more weeks then a 10-12 week training cycle just to be sure of an average #4 with a normal size spread. For the #4 cert i would fully expect to get a gripper around 4.3 with a spread of at least 3", so it's not happening yet an im not at all bothered about being the first guy to do it either. Ive also got plans for 3 strongman comps this year so all my efforts are working on winning those + i have other grip goals an dont plan on using ironmind grippers for a good while.

Good luck to rich williams, mark henry, brian shaw or whoever is planing to cert.

Have spoken to the friend whose father works in heathrow and she said that she can't (or rather he can't) help out.
She said that is is one thing for her to get a discount or free upgrade, quite another to hand out free flights. Sorry if i got any hopes up but at least i tried...
