2013 Oktoberfest Bavarian Strongman Challenge

Post by John Dungey » Tue Sep 03, 2013 7:15 pm

Athletes, still working on details to confirm this years event.

We are moving down the street to a higher volume traffic area and need to confirm some logistics early next week. The planned date is Saturday October 12th, 11 am to 6pm, King St ( TBA)

There will be 5 events: head to head tire flip 825lbs, log press - reps, stone pentagon, farmers walk and car deadlift (backup - super yoke , truck pull). Subject to change and not necessarily in this order.

Registration Fee - $75, includes contest shirt, beverages, food voucher, possible Oktoberfest event ticket (TBA).
Don't send any applications or fees until I post the event officially through the OSM website.

Athletes limited to 16.

We don't have a hotel sponsor this year as the Delta Hotel is revamping and only has 74 rooms , all booked by Molsons.

Call out for able bodied, experienced volunteers, for setup, event, and tear down. Shirt, food , drinks and front row centre stage at the event, let me know via PM or powerfest.prod@gmail.com!

Details to Follow!

Hey John,

Do you have don't want to go there and waist everyone's time with a bunch of zero's for not lifting a thing. I heard a lot of good things about this comp from Lance.

Thanks,
Bruce

Somehow some of my message never made it up on the site. I was wondering what the weights would be roughly.

Thanks,
Bruce

Thanks for getting back to me John. I think I'll be signing up as well. It'll be fun to compete against the big boys and get some pointers from them.

I'll come out and end my 2013 season on this show if John is willing to have me and I'll take out Bruce M while I'm at it. I also heard Ben Thompson's sponsors were asking him to make the trip to this show but he was reluctant to sign on out of fear that me and Bruce would beat him??????????? I understand your fear Benny as Bruce and I have been putting up some badass numbers in training but if you gonna be a REAL pro you gotta be ready to step to all challengers.

If anyone's on the fence about competing due to lack of a sponsor hotel, I Have some extra space (and two pull-put beds) at my house, and am a pretty short drive to the contest venue. Shoot me a PM, e-mail, or facebook message to discuss.
