The winner of this week’s quiz is Ben Edwards, of Lawrence, Kansas. He correctly identified the two USAWA lifters that have lifted the Dinnie Stones as Frank Ciavattone, of Walpole Massachusetts, and Kevin Fulton of Litchfield, Nebraska.
The Dinnie Stones are still located near their original place in front of the Potarch Hotel - which is next to the Potarch Bridge that the River Dee runs under. They are located close to Aberdeen, Scotland. They were originally weighed at 435 pounds and 340 pounds (for a total weight of 775#), but since have been reweighed by Gordon Dinnie in 1998 at 413 pounds and 321 pounds (a total weight of 734 pounds).
Donald Dinnie is said to have picked up both of these stones (at the same time) and walked the width of the Potarch Bridge – a distance close to 17 feet!!!
