We're on the verge of May, still a long way out from the registration due date but I have yet to get any interest from the Strongwoman community in the Baconfest event. If I don't have some ladies at least send me messages or post their interest/commitment by the end of the week, I will be force to cancel the event. I can't put resources into a division that may not come to fruition. That said, I want it to happen so please do consider coming out.
