I'd also like to say the Mr Arthur Jnr has done himself proudly in his first comp a long way from the little boy I first met when Colin when to collage!! Well done my man very proud to share the platform with you. Huge thanks to MC for the day Papa Bear Wadley think you need to see my piece box next time All the helpers on the day you guys made and helped things run brilliantly all day so thank you To Mike for refereeing you were fair consistent day. To all the novices that took part you guys were excellent all day Final thank you to Sólbjørn & Colin both has assisted with advice and encouragement to do this comp. which I was still in two minds to do on the day!! Glad I did Big shout out to Stewart fae Orkney come to the Scottish qualifier with us you'll enjoy it Highlights for me 160kg log by me Joel endurance tyre flipping extravaganza Oli on the stones Bjarne on the deadlift Colin on hold I though his head was going to go pop!!
