Hey guys.

Running a show in thunder bay on feb 12-14 and just wanted to post up a public invite here as we have no one representing southern ontario. We have guys from all over the states all over northern ontario , from manitoba and have lot of interest from guys in quebec and saskatchewan. Check out our fb page to see the events and details about our hotel discount. This show is for sure worth the 90 min flight from toronto airport.

Thanks for posting results Grant.

This Event will be running again in 2017. Over the weekend we had 30 booths, 800 spectators and 64 athletes doing their thing all weekend to raise funds for charity.

In 2017 our pro strongman payout will be $3000, $1100, $700, $400, $100, $50 ....... so I am expecting to see some faces of elite strongmen from southern Ontario at the event. Expect Top strongmen from Canada, USa, Brazil and the UK to be there.
