Hands across the Sea

Saturday 8 Feb, 2014
Events:
1. Two Hands Pinch Lift
2. Stub – Hold
3. IronMind Gripper #4, 3 or 2 – Silver Bullet

Stafford event. Inch Dumbbell (Thumbless grip) – Hold
[78k Inch dumbbell, 54k Inch dumbbell, or 40k Rolling Thunder]

We've had to change the third event, as Juha's Inch dumbbell is a Gladiator dumbbell and it is tough for them to get a grip of it.
We will still have this event as part of the Stafford event, and it'll be cool to see the results.
Replacing this in the international event is IronMind Gripper #4, 3 or 2 – Silver Bullet - not an official attempt though.

Grip Tour of Britain - Journey #2 - Chorley, England - HAS BEEN CANCELLED

I am bumping this up to see if anybody else wants to get in on running a contest on this date for a mega-comp.

 

The Holds make for a REALLY intense vibe at the comp.

 

Also, the holds events are VERY simple for an inexperienced person to execute, so it is easier for them to get involved.

 

I hope more people who have the equipment get interested in running one, if you have the time.

 

Thanks.

 

Jedd

The events have been selected for the World Alternative Games 2014 in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales (see below); easier ones for the First-timers, and tough events, including Steel bar snapping, for the Pro men. This should be a good spectator event, and the athletes can sign the snapped steel pieces at the end and give them to the spectators, which could be well received. We added an 83k class for the Pro’s which will be good for the smaller men.

Also here is a full list of all the events at the World Alternative Games 2014 over the two weeks.
http://www.worldalte...s.co.uk/events/

Events:
First-timers (3 events)
1. Half a Penny – Hold
2. Shallow Hub – Hold
3. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold

Women (3 events)
1. Half a Penny – Hold
2. Two Hands Pinch Lift – Hold
3. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold

Pro Men Open class (5 events)

2. Two Hands Pinch Lift – Hold
3. Adjustable Thick bar – Hold
4. PickAxe Lever to Rear – Hold
5. Braced snapping Steel Bar

Pro Men 83k class (5 events)
Same as Pro Men Open.

Classes: Pro Men Open and 83k, Women and First-timers classes.

For the World Alternative Games 2014 - I've made the 83k the 93k class now, so that we actually have a sizeable comp.
Also I noticed the BSH was 83k, so this balanced it up.
