York Barbell Strength Festival

On May 21, 2011 there will be a Strength Festival at York Barbell Museum and USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame in York, PA. There is a full schedule with the main events being a Kettlebells for Warriors workshop (all proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project) and two inductions into the Hall of Fame. Joseph Greenstein (aka The Mighty Atom) and Slim "The Hammerman" Farman will be inducted. I have the honor to be performing a strongman show for their induction. My show and the induction will take place during the lunch hour.

Also on the agenda is a USAWA "chain lift" competition and "record breakers" event. There will be martial arts demonstrations, a weightlifting exhibition, Crossfit workouts, grip games, strongman toys, stuff for the kids and a raffle worth thousands of dollars in products and services. All four branches of the US military will be there with a speech being delivered by one of our wounded veterans.

This event is going to be big! Last year's event brought in over $5000 for the Wounded Warrior Project and this years event is expected to double, even triple that.

I hope to see you there!
