OTSM Championships

by Eric Todd

OTSM Championship Announcement

On September 10, 2016, ET”S House of Iron and Stone will play host to the USAWA Oldtime Strongman Championship for the third time in its six years of existence. Once again, it will be in my tin can, which is an absolutely no-frills facility, but with plenty of iron to set some big records.  In the five previous championships, the title has been won by 4 different lifters.  Come out on September 10 and add your name to that list.  Lifts that will be contested this year are:

Thor’s hammer

Saxon Snatch

Hackenschmidt Floor Press

Dinnie Lift

As time allows after the meet, there will be opportunity for some record breaking. There will be awards for this meet.  Please get your entries in early in order that I can best prepare for this event.  I look forward to seeing you all here on September 10!

Gold Cup

by Al Myers

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

2016 IAWA GOLD CUP

I’m very excited to be part of the promotion of this year’s Gold Cup.  My father LaVerne has agreed to help me so I’ve named him co-promoter so he won’t change his mind on helping me.

The Gold Cup is one of the two big competitions (the IAWA Worlds is the other) that the International All Round Weightlifting Association promotes each year.  Something that we should be proud of as an organization is that the Gold Cup has been an annually event since it began in 1991.  No missed years.  There have been many great meet promoters through the years that have made this possible – all starting with the legend Howard Prechtel coming up with the idea of the Gold Cup and promoting the very first one.

Please join me and help make this year’s IAWA Gold Cup one of the best ever!
