Its my 53 lb york blob. I brought it to SS 16 and no one could budge it. 

 

At DBCC Gil lifted it, and at day of strength here in NC Bob Sudin took it for a ride on his 5th attempt. I think what makes it harder is the surface and shape isnt the same as most blobs. Really throws folk off. So i called it the krypto blob because all the blob guys around here and at the TN contest i went to couldnt move it or had a really hard time.

i bet soup to nuts you'd get it no problem, blobs are your jam.

Friday's Weekly Update.

 

I picked up a couple of things recently.

I got a 27.6lb Blob as a Gap Filler.  Been on a constant lookout for lighter blobs, pinch object to build up the lighter end for Women and Jr. competitors.

I also finally got a 34.8 (half 70) Glob as a Gap Filler.  At this point, I think Globs are done.  Unless you have 9.5"+ hands, I don't ever seeing a half 80 going up.

Although I'll toss them into the Medley...they really are for feat attempting.

CT = 4

NJ = 4

MD = 4

UPDATE Covering: Attendance and Event Staff

 

3 huge additions to SJ4 "Attending" list.

- @Jedd Johnson  "Whatcha gonna do when Napalm comes for you…brotherrrr?

@Shoggoth  “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. - HPL"  

- @odin  "Snow, sleet, hail, rain?  These are but paperweights on my training desk."

 

4 months out from the event…this brings the current hard attendance to 39.  Just how realistic is 50+ actively grip training competitors?  Very.

So far we are looking at…

Countries: 3  (USA36, Canada2, The Netherlands1)

States: 13 (NY6, CT4, NJ4, MD4, NC4, TN3, PA4, MA1, OR1, WV1, MO1, OH1, TX1)

Provinces: 2 (Quebec, Alberta)

 

The updated list is at the bottom of this post...following my request for event help.

 

NOTEthere is a surprise (at my request) competitor coming. This person is very strong and should add to the overall epic nature of the day.  This is just for fun/excitement/buildup, but I won't respond to guesses…and no…it's not Aaron…or Arnold. ;) 

In order to pull this off…I'm gonna need significant help.  @MRabich has already stepped up to do "Data Entry" for the Sanctioned Comp.  This is a serious responsibility and will allow me to concentrate on other contest details.  I am also asking for a total of 8 volunteers (and 2 backups) to act as "Event Staff" for the "Sanctioned Contest" only.  

Currently, @Squeezus, @acromegaman, @Shoggoth and @EJ Livesey are slotted as STAFF with @Tom Scibelli as a back-up.

I am looking for 5 more volunteers (4 + 1 backup)

Responsibilities will be rotated to ensure all Staff members will also be able to concentrate on competing seriously.

Responsibilities to be shared would be…

Judging/Data pass on:  Unless I am needed elsewhere, I will be judging one platform throughout the 3 sanctioned events.  I will need another judge for the second platform (and any breaks).  The Flask and the Crusher will both using cross bars for easier judging.  While we will employ a 30mm swipe block (provided for all contestants), the close will still need a good set of eyes.  It will be CRUCIAL that all judges make sure that Rabich receives the correct information on each attempt (weight and pass/fail).

Loading:

With two platforms and two "loading" events, each staff member would be responsible for helping load only a SINGLE event (two loaders per platform).

Sign in station: 

Contestant sign in,

Official contestant weighing,

Form signing of the "Will NOT sue Nate, his family, his dog, the hotel…basically take personal responsibility for oneself."

Contestant and Spectator Control:

Make sure that walking aisles to the platform are clear, spectators are settled, and people taking pictures are not interrupting the event.

General information Providers:

Spectators will have questions, as well as contestants.  As the promoter, if the Staff can field most of these questions, SJ4 will run much much smoother.

Set Up and Break Down of Room:

Those Staff members that are in town the night before could help me set the room up.  It will be locked overnight so I (and others) can leave equipment safely.  Break down should go quickly with more hands.  The hotel has heavy duty luggage movers which should handle the mats and weights efficiently.  I have a Caravan which can hold a great deal of equipment.  If someone is coming with a truck, I would make use of it to make the 0.8mile trip in a single shot.

Miscellaneous tasks:

Anything I haven't thought of basically.

 

 

Event Staff Members will receive two things…

 

1. My eternal gratitude 

2.  A second SJ4 shirt (this one is Red as opposed to the blue one) and has "STAFF" on the back to allow people to distinguish you immediately.

Here's a pic. (note…this design includes Norway's flag…in hopes that Karl makes it ;)

I'm happy to judge as long as I don't have to sit down.  It always kills my back.  Would rather be able to just stand and/or lean against something.
