Recommended Posts

Tank Andrade

Just looking to see how people are feeling about Gripmas this year ? I know there  are a couple other comps around that time,( im looking at Dec 5th or 12th).Covid has thrown a wrench in alot of plans but If there is enough interest i will move ahead with some more details.

I am pretty sure I would go.  My approach to Corona restrictions is that I observe whatever guidelines (and laws) are in place at the time.  So as long as the gathering is done in a way that is legal, I am in.  I'd keep 6 feet from folks and have a mask on hand (assuming that's still the guideline then).  It was a pretty big place and we were only about 10 last year.  Even if more people showed, it wouldn't be unreasonably crowded.  And no, I would not wear the mask doing the events lol.  As long as no one is up near my face while I do them I'm fine.

What events are in?  I'd LOVE to see Dynamometer.

I should be there this year. I was already slated for another comp in another city that weekend last year but I want to prioritize getting to a Connecticut Gripmas this time around.

Dynamometer for the crush event!  I may have spelled it wrong but you know what it is!  Perfect polar opposite to last year's TNS (and I would certainly be fine with TNS again but I don't see that happening twice in two years lol).

For crush event - the Norwegians are doing one called the Scale Press which is kind of like a two-hand dynamometer.  We did a one-hand dynamometer event a year or so ago at Tim's non-sanctioned comp, and yes, Chez still won, whaddaya expect, but it was fun and different than the usual grippers, if you are looking for something to mix it up like TNS did last year (thanks for that, you gave me my once in a lifetime beatdown of Jedd lol).
