2016 Gripmas Carol Entry

 

Date: Saturday - December 10th, 2016

 

Location:

The Yol Bosun Gym

230 Burley St

Crooksville, Ohio43731

 

Weigh In will begin at 8 AM

All NAGS weight classes will be held.  There will be women’s classes if any sign up.

Rules at 9:30

Contest Start Time - 10 AM

 

Events

·       Euro – normal rules – no warmups on the competition set up – there will be a warm up apparatus.  Each width will be done – then the next width etc.

·       Tips Tester –We will be using one from Barrel Strength as they are readily available commercially for people to buy and train on – no warmups on the competition setup – there will be a warm up apparatus.

·       The Infamous Gripmas Medley – will include just a couple Climbing Oriented tests – 3 versions – light (1 point) – heavy (2 points) – and Ladies.  Order will be the reverse of overall placement after the events previous.  Probably a little shorter Medley than years past.  

·       One surprise event of my choice depending on time.

·       A wrist event – either

·       Reverse Bending – normal rules – wraps will be double leather with a 1 1/8” outside limit.  EJ has graciously said he will provide calibrated stock – it’s been a long time since this has been contested.  Please bring your own wraps if you have them.  If this doesn’t work out then

·       Sledge rotation in and/or out – sledge choke or something else ???

 

NAGS percentage type scoring will be used - Same as in years past. 

 

Entry fee is $40 and must be received by November 15th.  There will be NO late entries this year – if you are coming be signed up on time.  All weight classes will be contested for record purposes.  Prizes will only be awarded to classes with 3 or more people.

 

A women’s class will be held if there is any interest.  Please sign up far in advance as I will have to figure out the Medley weights - prizes etc.

 

There will be the normal Liability Waiver to sign as well.

Yes but I don't really want to put my PayPal email out there.  So anyone who wants to PayPal - PM me please and I'll give it to you that way.

Happy to bring my 14-lb Sledge if it is needed for the Sledge Choke.

For NAGSC2016, we used hammers with 30-inch handles, in case you didn't know, Chris.  Andrew had all of them.  Maybe he can bring them.

I, for one, hope we go with bending, simply because I've wanted to start back up for a while now, but haven't had the motivation just yet.

I would prefer bending or sledge choke. I can bring a sledge or bending stock if we need it.

I'm just waiting to hear back from EJ to be sure he's able to furnish calibrated steel.

You guys will have the steel in time. I already have A LOT of calibrated stuff. I just have to see how big the gaps are.

I just got in a mountain of 9/32 CRS, and 1/4" square if you have a gap in that range let me know.

First Gripmas training session today after months of just climbing - kind of a ho hum session.  Not horrible but certainly not good.  Still have a little time - we'll see how things go.

Is there a Facebook event for Gripmas? Whether or not I can make it, I know some people who should be there.

If that's Ok, I would like to start pressuring them.

Josh - remember who you're talking to (Mr Anti technology) - I have no idea how to start a FB page on Gripmas - my son set up my personal page for me.  Feel free to make one up if you wish.  So far two people have actually sent in entries - but it's still early - I'm hoping for a good turnout.
