To prevent posts and threads about stone lifting getting lost in feats of strength, I've created a new section for it here.

David, are you talking strongman stones, or natural odd object type stones?

There will be a challenge day on Saturday 13th July 2013 to lift the Criccieth Stone.

The following link will give the details you need to enter, the event is open to all comers.
http://www.cricciethmemorialhall.com/St ... ength.html

There are three levels of lift, break the ground, to the chest and to the shoulder.
Criccieth's stone of strength is 177.5 kg in weight.

This year's event is again being sponsored by AGRITRADER, who have put up £1000 for the first person to get the stone to their shoulder...... yes, that's a THOUSAND QUID!!!!!

Got to be worth having a go at.

Rules for lifting the Feat Stone

1. Treat the stone with respect.
2. No lifting aids, straps etc may be used.
3. No “Tacky” or sticky substances.
4. Chalk may be used.
5. Replace the stone where you have found it.
6. Be proud of your attempt if you have given your best.
7. Sign the guestbook to build the legend of the stone.

You can enter via the link, or contact me on 07968 303508

Its going to be a great family day out with lots going on to keep young and old entertained

Les,
Thanks for the info.
I'll note it in my own calendar, and although I'm not really doing any stone lifting right now (all armwrestling and grip) I may come to watch.
