Hercules Hold- Cars on ramps

Tearing Medley- Objects are as follows: ez phonebook, deck crossways, hard phonebook, deck vertically, part's catalog, license plate

Big Squeeze DL- Using the FBBC "Big Squeeze" device. It is a 2 hand pinch lift using a steel 2x4.(no hooking of the fingers allowed)

As always, John Beatty of FBBC will have plenty of amazing food and beer for after the contest. Strongman equipment and grip equipment to play with, and the ability to learn from those who know what they're doing are all well worth the trip!!! Friends and family are more than welcome but seating is limited.
