I can't wait for these results! What will be the pinch widths offered? And what type of fat bar will be used, knurled or not?

I've forgotten what the minimum is on the pinch but Dave's maxes at 60mm. The bar is a well seasoned with chalk but not knurled. I taped it at 49.5mm thick.

As mentioned elsewhere, forecast v.wet for Saturday. Hope this won't impact too much on pinch weights.

The warm air heater is still in there so we're set.

Good stuff. What we like for lighting if I bring the video camera?

I'm back over at 6pm to reweigh some plates so my days not done yet. I may do some stretching if it doesn't take too long.

Not going chaps. Full of a really bad cold and an upset stomach to boot. Too long a trip for me to risk getting a state away from home. Gutted but I'll be back next year.
