Since some guys on here are from the area..

I will be getting a flight back to Glasgow at 7.30 ish from either stansted or luton. Which is easiest to get to at the time in the morning. Probably going to have to be there for 6am.

im in the same situation as yourself.

think im going to stay in the premier inn the night before and then no accomodation for the night after. my flight home is at 8am, bus to airport is at about 4am. no point in paying for a few hours shut eye.

Are we thinking of having a night out after the event?

It took me long enough but I've finally sent my application off. Looking forward to it. 4 out of the 5 events should quite good for me. On the other hand, I'm expecting about 90kg on the max log.Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

since i asked the question... ill answer for myself.

Today was my first time trying my hand at any events.

I got 95kg on a 13 inch log no problem, but couldnt lock out 100 after 3 attempts. I dont know if a smaller log is easier to press or what? but the cleans were easy.

I got 20 reps on the dead. Grin

11 seconds for the farmers.

didn't have a sandbag, but i did the 70kg farmer and keg in 27 seconds.

280kg Tyre - i just practiced some technique, but it was easy enough to be honest.

Where is everyone else standing?

Scott
