I'm going to host a NAS sanctioned strongman show in Draper Utah on June 9, 2012. I can't list too many details yet because I haven't completed the sanctioning form, but I had to tell somebody. I'm excited, I'm going to have novice and teen divisions so I'm hoping to get some new people introducted to strongman. I'll post more here later if people are interested.

Cool! If I lived anywhere near there I'd be in but that's one heck of a drive for me. I'm sure it will go well. What events? or aren't you allowed to say yet?

Cool! I might be doing that one. Depends on when the wife sets up a camping trip but it sounds like a cool one. Jim Pierce is running that. There will be a viking Press (something I always wanted to try) and a crucifix with a beeper set up like the old WSM. I think the pull is going to be a Monster truck.

I think the rule for posting anything about events is that I can't post anything before notifying the head of NAS, which I've done. So I think I'm ok in saying the events will most likely be something like this ( it may change )...

Press Medley: axle, log, keg, sandbag
Truck pull ( hoping to get the local fire engine )
Carry Medley: farmers, sandbag, keg probably 50 feet each
Max Rolling Thunder 1 arm pull, last man standing
Sandbag carry and load ( I don't to have to worry about stones damaging the pavement )

http://www.marunde-muscle.com/ is probably the most popular strongman web forum.

Nice I will spectate but I do have a couple friends who do it and do appreciate the sport.

Thanks for the link BTO.

Awesome deal! Hope things go smooth! You might try posting this in the Powerlifting/Strongman forum. You might get some more exposure there.

if I started tapping my way there, I'd arrive sometime this decade.think you can postpone it a bit?


Best of luck with the contest. It'll be awesome.

Ps. Awesome golf vid. Couldn't see the ball, but the swing looked great and it sounded like great contact.
