The competition consisted of farmer’s carry, axle deadlift, log press and a tire flip/sandbag medley. The word most used by participants and spectators was “inspirational!” Jan Burley, manager of Health and Wellness, welcomed everyone and then turned it over to the Adult & Teen Challenge group who led the crowd in the National Anthem. Jan’s staff, Holly Pelzer and Jay Grove, provided set up and timing duties while National Strong Man competitor Karl Gillingham judged the events.
