Flexing the "TRIBAL" shirt & cargo shorts by Bulky Boy under the Space Needle!

This is what the 7 high school teams competed for...BRAGGING RIGHTS!

Still clowning around under the shadow of the Space Needle.

Me & my friends Steve, Shawn and Willie Austin.  Shawn was rocking the Bulky Boy "USA FLAG" shirt at the contest.

"Maximus-Minimus" was even there for concessions!  Awesome BBQ!

Teams competing in the Agility Drill, by running 2 figure eights around cones.

Seattle Seahawks Louis Rankin & Justin Forsett presented the guy in the middle an autographed hat by Jordan Babineaux.  The lucky fan won it in a raffle.

Then, these lucky kids won an autographed poster of Seattle Sounders Freddie Ljungberg in another raffle drawing.  Rankin & Forsett presented them with it.

Afterwards, there was a push-up contest for the most reps.  NW CrossFit donated 2 months of membership to two winners. (standard & knees down push-ups)

This was friend Shawn Miller won 2 round trip tickets from Alaska Airlines in the raffle!

What was even more crazy, is that he WON the second pair of tickets from Alaska Airlines!  I was looking over his shoulder when they read off the winning numbers, and I couldn't believe it!  Shawn spent $20 to buy 5 raffle tickets and won both pairs of airfare!  CRAZY!

"Miller-time" showing what he won in the raffle.  Congrats bro!  I used to work with Shawn & Willie Austin at a gym in Seattle that Willie used to be part-owner.

I'm very proud of these Polynesian kids!  Congrats again!

Congratulations to the Juanita High School Rebels!  They won the 1st "Washington's Strongest School" contest yesterday.  Each of the 8 kids on their team won $500 that can be used toward higher education.  A team comprised of 4 boys and 4 girls.
2nd place was awarded to Southwest Youth & Family Services.  The 8 Bulky Boy shirts that were donated to this contest, went to these Polynesian kids and they did an awesome job.
3rd place went to Eastside Catholic High

Congratulations to all of the 7 high schools that participated!  They showed alot of heart, and I was proud to be the MC for this contest.
Its very encouraging to see the youth in our community come together and combat teen obesity in our area!

Much aloha,
Grant Higa Bulky Boy strongman team
