@cavemansam : Doesn't sound bad. But I would have to spend extra money and chances are that nobody could manage this thing. Also it would be hard to transport. I plan to host this competition at our local soccer stadium so I would have to get it up there somehow.
Also: We are in Germany, don't you worry about beer supply
Your question: In Germany there is only one strongman federation (called the GFSA - German Federation of Strength Athletes). Strongman is a very unpopular sport in Germany (even more so than other strength sports). There are two official GFSA beginner cups a year. One of which was in Hannover (which is the one I participated in), the other one is in fall. The requirement for one to participate in one of the two is to never have competed in a GFSA show. So by doing this one competition I became an "athlete of the GFSA" so to say and am no longer allowed to participate in the beginner cups. The only other GFSA cups are open cups (which often are invitational tournaments), the 2nd league and the 1st league and international cups. All of these are far out of reach for me. The jump from the beginner cup level to the 2nd league is pretty significant!
My only other option is to participate in strongman shows that aren't hosted by or from the GFSA, like competitions hosted by a gym for fun. But those seem to be very rare.
If there is another strongman from Germany here, please correct me with everything I got wrong!
@T3hPwnisher : Good point about the trap bar! Didn't think about the risk with this at all. Unfortunately I don't have a sled and can't get more equipment in the near future (don't know if I should laugh or cry about my financial situation right now). How about sandbag one lane, keg one lane, sandbag again, keg again? For like 15 meter per lane.
Loading would be great. I could maybe just stack beer cases onto each other as a platform (with someone who holds them in place), this has worked before. Other than that weight over bar with a sandbag should be doable as well.
Cool suggestion for the second overhead event! Sounds great. I guess a dumbbell shouldn't be too hard to get or borrow.
I hope so! I really hope I will find people who are interested and maybe try to train for this instead of just showing up without having put their focus on OHP and stuff like that...
