Samthepigman said:Personal opinion is there isn't enough lads for regionals. England's U90 is skipping them again this year and in my opinion going against 25 lads in a final showdown as apposed to 5-6 lads in a qualifier is much more fun

Just my opinion obviously Happy

I agree. Also takes less time and resources to do 1 comp vs 4 which allows you to funnel the money back into the comp.

I see what you mean. I like the idea of regional champions though. I think it encourages guys to make the jump from novice to nationals when you have stepping stones to get there. makes it hard to accommodate different levels of ability when you have a direct entry final.
got good memories of the days doing the mids u90.

That's why we've gone with the weight options for 3 of the first 4 events so it accommodates for people of all levels.

possible you might open it up to more?
im waiting on the natties to announce something but if thats a no go I want to do this if if I can.

Yeah we will re open it at some point definitely and I'll get you in if you want in mate. Just need to work out timings etc as we've had wayyy more entries than expected

Up to 32 entries so actually going to be closing entries tonight while we sort logistics

macroth said:I'm too far away and a dozen kilos too heavy to even consider signing up, but this looks like a first-rate comp, even for those who'll only do the first four events.
The weight options in particular are a great idea given the current lack of competitive outlets.

Cheers. Hoping the weight options entice some newer guys to come give it a crack. We've had way more entrants than I was expecting so we may be changing it to top 10 do last 4 events.

Iranians aren't allowed in the US I believe? It's why Peiman hasn't been to the last two worlds either.

luki said:If it's concrete floor you could skip the plywood in Lukes suggestion. Ply is really important if training on wood joists to spread the weight. Not an issue on solid floor.
I tried playground mats instead of the stable mats. They are thicker so protect the floor and dampen the sound better. They are more bouncy though.
An ikea stainless steel splashback on ply is good to protect against stones/kegs bouncing into the wall in loading area or by squat rack.

If you're deadlifting on just rubber over time it'll smash the concrete.

I'd personally turn the whole floor into a platform of sorts. 2 layers of plywood and a layer of stall mats. 5m x 5m will cost you around 600 for the plywood and 300ish for the mats and would be bombproof. Or if its just you using it and it's not going to get absolutely battered go 1 layer of plywood and cut the wood cost in half.

Agreed. We've had 21 entrants in first day so can't complain!

Very easily.

What exactly is horrifying about a mask? It's a minor inconvenience at worst.
