To the top! This event is coming up this Sunday! 9:00 am in the Centra parking lot. It should be a great time! There are even still some openings for contestants, so if you're a strong guy, give Dan a call. If you are just interested in watching strong guys, be sure to stop down and watch!!!

1st - Joe Feathers (24 points)
2nd - Dan Davis (21 points)
3rd - Sid Fisher (8 points)
4th - Nick Love (5 points)
5th - James Love (4 points)

(I hope i got Nick and James in the right order. I'm going off of memory.)

There were 10 contestants total and, even though the weather was less than perfect, it was a great event and I think all contestants and spectators had a good time.

The event was filmed by Midrivers and will be aired this upcoming weekend on the local Midrivers channel. Midrivers also will have DVDs of the event for sale.

Next year should be even better!

What exactly did the contest involve?

There were five events:

Log Press
Tub Stack (Vitalix tubs donated by Murdochs - 250 lbs a piece)
Tire Flip (600 pound tractor tire)
Carry and Drag
Bus Pull (23,000 pound Pioneer bus)

All events were similar to those competitions contained in the World's Strongest Man events - just a little smaller scale. I'm not certain on the weights of the logs in the log press or the carry and drag apparatuses.

Contestants earned points by placing in each of the events. 5 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd place, 2 points for 4th place, and 1 point for 5th place. Points were then totalled up after five events to determine winners and placement.

The top 3 finishers received large trophies and sweatshirts with 1st place also getting a backpack from the Army National Guard. Fourth and fifth places received plaques.

Log Press had a "tongue weight" of 220 lbs according to Big Dan.

The carry weighed 315 lbs and the drag weighed 450 lbs also according to Dan.


And being a competitor, this was hard work, but it's the most fun I've had in a long while. Can't wait until next year.
