Heavy Champ Update
by Al Myers
I’m busy getting the final plans made for this weekend. The good news is that the weather forecast is looking positive for a very nice sunny day! There will be a lot of activity going on at the Dino Gym on Saturday. In addition to the USAWA Heavy Lift Championships in the morning we will be hosting the Kansas Strongest Man in the afternoon. Scott and I have planned the competitions in such a way that a person can compete in both if they want! I have made some very nice custom awards for both of the competitions which I think everyone will really like.
The Heavy Champs will be conducted in the Dino Gym on the heavy lift platform. I will have loaner neck harness’s and hip belts available. The KSM will be contested on the athletic field behind the gym. I have made some new equipment for the competition (including new yokes and farmers implements). There is a shelter house for those just wanting to watch and stay out of the sun.
Afterwards I will be having a deck BBQ for anyone who wants to stay for it. There’s nothing better after a long day of competing than sitting back, eating, and relaxing with friends! I’m looking forward to the weekend!!! See everyone soon!
