I've been given the go ahead to run the southern qual for the uk's again next year and thought I'd put it out there, what events do guys wanna do/see? At the moment I really wanna put a squat in, I'm thinking front squat for max. Any other suggestions appreciated even new event ideas.

Max front squat would be awesome, I always like to see a good medley or carry for distance.

Nah i reckon max back squat. Or some sort of loadable squat event like the barrels from previous WSM. Log/axel for reps, Car deadlift for reps. Farmers and a yoke medley. Stones.

personally i think the events that you like terry, the ones you praise on here are also the events i like to see.

Tough loading medleys
Keg Toss
Distance yoke not too heavy
A good deadlift
Press medley
Squat variety

I'm sure there will be a good mix of static, moving and endurance events. A max event would be good as well.

As long as my back is better il be doing the comp again terry, any idea on dates yet?

I much prefer back squat for max or reps. Good luck running your comp Terry.

I really like truck pulls. Two of em. Head to head!

Max front squat is a great idea!

Conans?
Yoke and farmers, one for a good distance the other pretty heavy?
Tyre flip?

My conans wheel is s**te but a max carrying event I would definitely like. Similar event.

Truck pull I'd also like but I guess that'll be venue dependant.

Maybe just go max back squat if guys would prefer.

James I'm hoping early may and be great if you can make it.

Maybe something like,
car Deadlift would definitely be front bar as side handles and squat are too similar.
Axle for reps or a medley as I will have access to 6 axles
Shield walk, head to head ideally
Max squat
40m yoke 20 drop and turn
And loading or stones. I can now go head to head on stones 110, 130, 140, 160 and 180kg which I think would be nice with a run like uk's and wsm

I also really like the idea of keg toss for height with a 25kg but that may be time consuming.

I'm quite keen on the idea just purely cause it's so different. Would be nice to see someone get up around 300kg and Deadlift for maxes are always done so fancy doing something different

6 axles to me opens up the idea of an oh and dead event

120 axle ftoh
280 dead
130 ftoh
300 dead
140 ftoh
320 dead

kind of idea, just something different, obv time wise having a normal oh event head to head makes sense though

Double truck pull is a bad event. Unless the trucks have identical wear to the drivetrain, lube, tyre pressure etc there can be a big discrepancy in the force required to shift it. So many comps (internationals in particular) you'll see one of the two trucks win every round regardless of who's pulling it.
