As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

Two hours left to sign up. Looks like these will be the smallest two meets to date.

The meet is on! Christian and Marc are scheduled to lift today.

An update on the judging: Helgi Briem has graciously agreed to judge and I'm also going to step in. Finding a third judge should not be a problem; if nobody gets in touch soon I'll do the usual round.

Go for it (at least Christian probably did already Smiley)!

For the record, I have made an exception for this meet for one reason only: without Christian, the meet would have consisted of one lifter only. Subsequently, I suggest allowing lifters to reschedule their lifting day a bit closer to the meet than the current two weeks. Perhaps four days out from the meet? This would allow for some more flexibility to cope with life as it happens.

So, Christian is lifting on Saturday.

And now my good folks, the meets are REALLY on!!!!  Grin Good luck to Matt and Marc also!

I think I won't be able to compete at all in this meet. I went to the gym and it was closed for no apparent reason.

It's opened tomorrow but I would have a 30min window to drive to the gym and do my things after a 12h shift.

Marc, sorry to hear that, bad luck. Sad

You were the only one in the bench press meet, so the meet is now officially cancelled. Matt and Christian are still in the military bench meet of course.

The military bench meet has been passed to the judges, being Helgi Briem, Måns Rinne and myself.

As usual, you can follow the judging progress in the box above the forums. The judges have one week to finish the judging from today.

Stay tuned. Smiley

I was glad to be able to compete. Sorry to hear that Marc could not enter the gym. That really sucks when you get ready and drive all the way to the gym only to learn that it is closed.

I'm expecting some big PR's from you !!!

Marc, sorry to hear of your gym closing ordeal.  Bust out those PR's on the next comp. you enter.

No PR on this one. But it was a good experience none the less. I was on week 6 of the Sheiko cycle so I was not expecting too much. Lets see what the judges say.
