I will be running a Grip Competition on September 28, 2013 here in Wyalusing PA in my Garage Gym.  it is an official NAGS event with all 3 main lifts as well as two other classics.  This contest was initiated by the members of my coaching site TheGripAuthority.com.  They asked if I would run one for them, so ITS ONNNNNNNNN!

I forwarded the announcement to my brother, and he sounds pretty stoked to attend.  I told him, it would be his first contest and people would be happy to show him the ropes.

I'm in. Will be shooting for 93kg class. 58lbs in almost 4 months should be doable. :-)

I don't doubt you.  We might as well have a "Best Abs" contest when you are here.

Right now, my leg is so swollen from this torn quad, I'm fairly sure it weighs 93kg. :-) We'll see. Definitely want to be under 105.

I'm dealing with some nagging minor injuries right now, but if I'm feeling good by then I want to come out and compete especially since you are so close by. I'll let you know as it gets closer Jedd.

Absolutely.  If Rick hadn't run his comp in 2003, I might never have gotten into Grip.  You can bet he will show up and hit everything with intensity and probably have an epic beard!!!
