Now that my Scottish Highland Games has been completed my focus has shifted to the OTSM on December 7th. So far I have one entry in hand (thank you to Dean Ross) and several who have shown interest. Here are some updates to the previously posted information.
1. Shirt deadline: I have promised a shirt for those that enter but I’m going to have to put a deadline on the shirt as they were so popular at my Highland Games…I SOLD OUT! So, if you are coming and want a shirt I need your shirt size (at the least) by November 15th. I don’t necessarily need your entry……but that would be nice. I will take entries on meet day….BUT DON’T EXPECT A SHIRT.
2. Location: The contest will be held at my gym in the basement of my home. The first year we had 10 lifters, but last year we had fewer. I can’t justify loading all my equipment up, renting the old school gym, and hauling all the stuff in, then hauling it back out. It’s a tight fit, but if the weather is nice, one or more events will be outside.
3. Breakfast: It has been a tradition for my contests to eat breakfast at Pancake City before the meet (dutch). Anyone that wants to weigh in BEFORE breakfast be at my place at 7:30am and please, give me a heads up or you might find me sleeping…or WORSE! We will then head in to Pancake City for a good, ol’ greasy breakfast or a stack of flapjacks….or BOTH. If Art comes….THEY HAVE COFFEE!!!!
I hope all the USAWA members will consider coming to the meet! See you there!
