I had surgery on my ankle this past December but I'm healing nicely. I want to hold this competition again this year. I selected one hand events that test the major areas of grip while also being relatively light since I'm still not 100% and don't want to put tons of pressure on the ankle for a while (no axle etc.). The details are still being worked out but I wanted to post now to give everyone lots of notice.
Saturday July 26th, 2014 - Tentative date based on discussions with the Northeast grip guys who are most likely to show up. Seems to work for all the regulars.
Carmel, NY. Its going to be at my friend's house. He has a big 2 car garage (Like Jedd Johnson's). We save money by not having to rent a place out. The money will go to prizes instead. I'm not sure I feel comfortable posting his address so I might just send the address to the people who send the entry fee or who I know personally.
1) RGC Rated grippers with 20mm block set - I have almost 50 rated grippers and other guys who are planning to go will help fill any gaps.
2) Ironmind Hub
3) Ironmind Rolling Thunder
4) 12-lb Hammer Coin Deadlift to 18"
4 attempts for a max close/lift for every event. Only one hand is to be used for every event. You have to decide which hand to use for each event before your first attempt and stick with that hand for the event (e.g., you use your right hand for your first attempt of an event, you have to use it for attempts 2-4). No switching hands between attempts but you can use different hands for different events (e.g. you are better on grippers right hand, but better on the rolling thunder left hand).

$20 - All of it will go to prizes. I'm pretty relaxed about the due date. You can even bring it the day of the comp but I would prefer it ahead of time so I can buy the prizes with it. Just like last time I won't accept a prize if I achieve a high placing (it just doesn't feel right to me).
I’ll try my best to put together prizes. I'm not doing trophies since I figure putting the money towards prizes is better. Donations are appreciated.
More Information such as an Entry form etc. will be added to this thread as I figure them out.
