@MCrushetta and I made a video about the events. It is geared toward people who aren't already schooled in the ways of grip, but still informational. Share it with your friends, get them to come check out the BEST GRIP COMP THERE IS!

If everything works out on my end I'll be able to come down but will have to see how the finances pan out.

Would love to meet you dude. One of reasons why I love grip is the awesome people I have met along the way. I plan on returning to competition next summer.

Hey y'all, don't forget to register by the 19th! Early registration saves you $5 and helps us guarantee that we will have a shirt in your size the day of the contest.

Any shirts available? 3X?

I'll post what I have left up on www.barrelstrengthsystems.com, but I checked over what sizes we have left and there is one 2XL tank left.
