Do you have to qualify for this contest like nationals or can you enter if someone is a promoter near you?

If Adam Glass can't promote for some reason, I will get his equipment and run the Minneapolis contest out of my house if necessary.  :)

From his insistance on my participation I would guess he is planning on hosting the Minneapolis, MN, USA arm of the contest.

 

David, I've neglected the Griptopz over the year, so... is there some standardization between the handle sizes on the thick handle event... or do we just compare the numbers regardless of which handle you chose?  The latter is my assumption.

 

Thanks.  As of yet, I'm planning on competing this year.  Today was day one.

I fingured he was.  Great news. 

 

The instructional video for the promoters said any handle can be used.  You can pick the one that suits you.

This year's poster.

https://fbcdn-sphoto...418951057_n.jpg

We are getting everything together for this year's World's Strongest Hands contest.

Re. T-shirts
The design will be the poster on the front of the t-shirt.
Are there any people who will want to buy a t-shirt that is above XXL size, or smaller than a Medium t-shirt?
Also any Women's t-shirts?

Cost will be the usual cost of about £12 GBP.

Thanks
David

Each year we test the World's Strongest Hands springs for the promoters, so that all springs sent to the promoters are exactly the same.

Here are the figures from 2013 (black with a lime green and red ends - the Joker spring).
Increase in spring length. -- Weight hanging
34.01mm -- 30.53k
45.75mm -- 40.83k
57.75mm -- 50.98k
69.75mm -- 61.08k

All the best
David

I have decided not to move forward as a promoter in Boise, ID this year for World's Strongest Hands. My apologies if it inconveniences anyone and I thank David for understanding. Best wishes to all.

Hey guys,

 

I'm new to the board. I would really like to compete in the Boston WSH but I can't seem to find any information about when and where. I googled and facebooked, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Adam, where exactly is the contest going to be held? I didn't see an address posted; was going to PM or email you but thought others might be wondering as well. I went a couple years ago when you held it in Plymouth. I will be in the Minneapolis area this weekend and would like to compete.
