Next Sunday (October 21) we’re going to have a relaxed little griptogether at Evolve south in Edmonton. This is to help people get familiar with gripsport and to get a chance to play with the implements being contested at Spring Clench. I don’t think there are many potential competitors in the GB but I figured I’d post in the off chance.

“Due to the popularity of this contest I’ll be capping the competitors at 30. Mainly through the “going” on the Facebook event page.”

Switched out the gripper event for a max Dynamometer crush. A ton easier for non-gripper folks and people with smaller hands. 

 

Looking at putting in the shirt and trophy order next week so I’m getting the competitor list dialed in.

30 is BIG! 

Will it be run close to the Tucson contest again next year or will it be spaced out? Your contest would be the perfect excuse to visit Canada.

Usually we have a few weeks between our contests. I try for late March to Early April. I think Aaron usually has his first. It'd be great to have you out. Next year I'm going to split the men's into a couple of weight classes as well to give more folks an opportunity to place.

Then he had better invest in a few COC 4s lol.  Doesn't the dynamometer only go up to 300?
