I've entered my first strongman competition coming up in May. At my weight class I get to go in as a lightweight. (whew!) Also because it's my first time I get put into the novice class with other first time competitors. (whew!)
So I'll get the formalities done with... If you'd like to help donate to me so I can compete and keep competing I set up a donation page here:
Just an example of the cost, Per meet $100, Annual Membership $77, Travel and gas for training up to May $100, equipment still required $100. As you can see I'll be about $400 into the first competition and while some of the costs (equipment and annual membership) aren't as common of a cost, the entry fee and travel expense will always be there. I can assume each competition will be $200 average. If I have to travel farther, which I will for some, add in hotel, food, and additional gas. So yeah, even if it's $3 you'll be helping me out greatly! I would appreciate it.
If you're a website or gaming company send me a donation and a t-shirt. I'll rep your company while I'm lifting! Hell, can you imagine a Newgrounds t-shirt!
I've had the opportunity to practice all of the lifts that I'll be competing with in my weight class except for the Conan Wheel. Luckily I was able to complete all of the weights successfully for multiple reps. We get 60 seconds to do as many reps as possible at the set weight for each event.
Again, if you could donate to help pay for my first competition you would open up the opportunity to keep going. Thank you!
