just a heads up, my school club, RIT Weightlifting, is hosting a small non-sanctioned Strongman challenge as a fundraiser. There is a 'global facebook' event up with more details, but those not on facebook-
This is the First Annual RIT Strongman Challenge hosted by RIT Weightlifting!
Open to ALL of RIT and any one who wants to compete, Men AND Women.
This is a fundraising event for the Club so we can host bigger and better events next year!
Spectators welcome and encouraged! Did I mention no charge for spectators?
