I haven't heard from Luke or Kody - Gill told me he can't make it.  So the 93K class looks a little thin this year.  (pun intended)

Awesome, glad the post office didn't let me down. I'm all set to tear up the campus board, and try not to snap my wrists with the sledge

I figure you'll be the only one to even have a shot at all the Campus events :)

For those of you who have never been to Gripmas - here's some information you might find handy.

Feel free to bring your wife or significant other - no kids under 12 please. 

Weigh in starts at 8AM and runs to 9:30.  Teresa and I serve breakfast starting at 8AM.  Bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, and toast.  There is a restaurant about a 3 minute walk away if you want something else.  Regular and decaf coffee and lots of it.  Please help out as asked as it's standing room only in the kitchen while we're all in there.

Warm ups can start anytime after you weigh in.  The garage is about 10 feet from the house.  Please wear your self out :).

Please use the Port O Let at the rear of the garage - wives can come indoors.

Sign the liability release and draw your number for the order in the ISG event.  Help the score keeper spell your name right on the computer and get you in the right weight class.

9:30 will be the rules meeting - I'll go over everything and answer questions.

Order of events is ISG - 2HP - Medley - Sledge Levering

I don't have designated loaders so please help out loading the 2HP event and spotting the Sledge Event. If everyone does just a little its pretty easy.

Everybody helps out with the Medley and it's scoring - no big deal.

When done we will eat Pizza and have the awards.

After that it's free time - please plan on staying - visiting - and trying all the feats of strength that are always going on.  This is a great time to learn how to do Grippers  - how to do better on the Euro - and talk to everyone about life and strength training in general.  I'm sure Nick will be bending steel and horseshoes and can teach you that as well.  You can learn more at one contest than years working out by yourself.

No beer during the contest but after is fine - bring your own beer as I only drink cheap Busch Lite.  Teresa furnishes coffee all day and there is a cooler full of water - if you want energy drinks or pop etc, feel free to bring your own - but bring as much stuff as you can in a bottle please - cans get kicked over and I'm the guy who has to scrub it out of the textured rubber flooring the next day.

If you are staying in a local hotel - please stop down the evening before and hang out rather than spend the evening alone watching the TV.

Any questions just ask.

Yeah unfortunately our closing date on our house got moved from Dec 9 to Nov 29th so I will not be able to attend unless there is some miracle that we get settled in by then but there is slim to no chance. Really sucks because I always look forward to it and I feel really strong on 2HP.

You will be missed - good luck with the house and if things work out - you will certainly be welcome at the last minute.
