Hope you are all doing great and ready for an awesome holiday season. We are super excited to be hosting what is shaping up to be a major event. There are a total of 255 people signed up to compete in both individual and team events. The doors will open at 7am on both days with the actual competition starting at 8:30am. All individual events will be run on Saturday and all team events will be run on Sunday.
Each individual event will be run sequentially in the following order:
There are 5 individual events and 3 team events. The events and movement standards will be revealed as follows:
Individual Event 1 and 2 and Team 1 on Thanksgiving Day
Individual Event 3 and 4 and Team 2 on Saturday November 30
Individual Event 5 and Team 3 on Monday December 2.
If you are coming in from out of town the closest hotel is the Comfort Inn at I35 and Shawnee Mission Parkway. We also have a 20 bed barracks at the gym and anyone is welcome to stay for $25 a night.
With the huge numbers at the event for parking we encourage you to arrive early and if possible park at the Merriam Center Shopping Center and carpool in.
That’s about it for now and we will be sharing more about special offers from sponsors in the upcoming week. They may or may not take cards so make sure to bring cash if you are interested in any of our sponsors products.
Lift Heavy and Move Fast my Friends.

PS. If any of you are in for both days and are available to judge on the day you don’t compete let me know if you can help.
