Mahalo Bulky Boy! We all appreciate it!
Whats up Bulky Boy viewers? 
This is Grant Higa, the "HIGA MONSTER" with a little write-up of our recent Strongman contest we just promoted.

The "2nd Washington's Strongest Apple" was held on July 18, 2009. The location was the beautiful City of Des Moines Marina. This majestic setting is on the banks of the Puget Sound, with the Olympic Mountains in the background.

I had 39 amateur strongman competitors, including 2 women. They had 4 tests of strength.
TIRE FLIP (up to 775 lbs)
AXLE CLEAN & PRESS (up to 263 lbs)
FARMERS WALK (up to 287 lbs in each hand)
KEG LOAD (up to 290 lbs)

Big mahalo to Bulky Boy for designing the contest t-shirts! All of the competitors thought they were the SICKEST design they have ever seen!

I also bought some "SECURITY" shirts for my staff/loaders, so that the contestants knew that we are not to be messed around with. :)

Here is a video link to a media clip I had with the local NBC affiliate here in Seattle:

It was alot of fun doing that clip! Notice, I am wearing the "ICON" Bulky Boy shirt in that video. Gotta give the viewers a taste of what Bulky Boy designs look like, right?

Thank you again Bulky Boy for helping me out with this contest! You guys are the best! This show will be bigger & better in 2010!
