MGC gets better.
 
I heard from Jerri today that Don will be deadlifting after the grip contest in lieu of entering a meet for his 6th decade of lifting. We are all invited to join in. Don will have everyone interested weigh in and Gary Chapman will be judging.  Same rules as a deadlift meet.

If my back feels up to it after the Farmers Deadlift event I will certainly take part.

You and Nick R will be doing pretty good in that farmer's pick I think.

I'll be deadlifting for sure. I might be in shape to do OK.

I'll be staying at the Holiday inn express. I would love to get together with anyone coming into town early. We have usually gone to Applebee's, which is near the hotels in town, the night before the competition.

My phone number is 231-715-0402 if anyone wants to coordinate getting together before the competition. Thank again to Andy for help making this happen, I've always looked at this as a contest for the Michigan guys and what they want- Andy and Darrin are the most active now and are keeping the sport alive in Michigan, and I thank them for the enthusiasm to keep this going.

I've already made my reservations for Friday and Saturday at the same hotel. Not sure what time I'll be arriving Friday. I may even start the drive up on Thursday so I can arrive earlier on Friday.

Yeah, Nick is definitely strong on the farmers!

Bob, I hope my body weight is low enough Friday night so I can eat more than a celery stick and one light beer with you. I've a few pounds to go to make 183.

Looking forward to the contest, it will be my second. The first time I met some of you there at the same location last Nov. Don's dead lift sounds cool too. Might try it out if I have any arms left. Will be there with Jeff and Kong, as Jeff said already. It is a good time, might do a little better this time in some of the stuff, the farmers and 2 hand lever is new to me. Wish we were doing blobs tho, that was my strongest event!!

I hope so too Eric! For grip stuff, I am well within 230 so I don't have to worry.

Maybe blobs next year! They seem to be pretty regular in our contest.

My pinch is useless, and I might get a 3 with a block. Going for a good show on the rest. Gonna talk over some details with Andy this week and hopefully have everything all set. I will be getting beer and snacks for the day of the comp, and a few modest prizes. Planning on having a gold, silver, and bronze sledgehammer for the first three places.
I should probably be in town around 5 at the latest on Friday. My wife has class until noon, and we should leave soon after that.

I'll drop a teaser. The bonus local event at the end of the King Kong this fall will be a blob medley that has as 22+ blobs ranging from half a york 50 to a super slick Fatman.

Thanks to Don, Bob, Andrew for putting on another great grip contest. It was well run, relaxed, and fun. I had a great time and got alot of motivation and tips from people. It was good to meet new people and see some great feats. Congrats to the winners. Thanks to Jerri for cooking up some great chili and it was great to see Don's record breaking deadlift. Great job guys.

Thanks.  If I had understood the scoring I should have gone for a bit more. :)
