Exciting news!

English ‘Open’ Stone Lifting Championships

This will be part of the World’s Strongest Hands - The Gathering event, which is run over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 7 & 8 July, 2012. The stone lifting will be on the Saturday, 7th July.

This is an Open contest; open to anyone from any country. The WSH Gathering will have many competitors from abroad, so these are all welcome to take part.

Events:
1 Heavy Stone Bearhug lift off the floor with the stone roller for max weight.
2 Lifting the 260lb Puterach replica stone over a 4ft high bar, for reps in 90 secs.
Tie breaker - Stone walk for distance

Peter Martin is bringing down the 260lb Puterach replica stone from Scotland.

Venue:
"Grip Factory", Stafford, England.

Start:
9.30 am start of the grip contest. First stone event is the third event.

Promoter:
David Horne

Entrance fee:
To be confirmed

Trophies:
There will be trophies for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Rules:
To follow, and will post a video on youtube.

General rules for stone lifting
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.

I like to get these contests sorted with lots of time to spare so people can book them in their calendar and know what the events are. When I know the number of competitors competing, then I will be able to see the time-frame of how long each event will take.

If something needs to be changed we will, so please be aware that it is subject to change if needed.
Consistency is key!
