@Eric Roussin have a question regarding the youth division. @bencrush brought this question up on my contest thread page.  "Will the youngest youth girls use the exact same implements as the adults for the contest?" 

Yes, it will be the same events. We realize that this may mean the youngest and smallest competitors may not have the strength or hand size required to compete in all four events.

Thank you both! Bombing out in one event is acceptable. 3 out of 4 will be able to load light enough for my little one.

The good thing about kids is that they grow! :) While they may not be as competitive this year or next, eventually they'll be in the upper age range of the bracket.

I’m planning on competing in this competition. I’m looking forward to getting back in the competition mode after a very long lay off.

What city is the Colorado leg of King Kong going to be? It's a fairly short plane ride for me for most of the state but I couldn't find any other information when trying to search to register.

Does the Rehband neoprene/Velcro soft belt fall under the allowable lifting belts? I’ve been wearing one to keep my back warm while training.

I do not believe there are any restrictions on belts.

A third Canadian venue has been added. Brad Provick will be hosting King Kong in Regina, Saskatchewan, on October 26th.

There is still a chance that there will be even more venues...

210 last year. It goes up every year. With the addition of a youth division, more women’s classes, and more venues this year, I’m confident we’ll hit 250+.
