The new grip exercise that Karl Gillingham and Dave Ostlund taught me...pinching bottlecaps in between your fingers!  This was so hard!  Dave & Karl filled a cup full of bent caps that night!

I placed 5th place overall, out of 9 competitors.  I'm pretty stoked with my overall performance, especially in the Car Deadlift for reps and 351 lb Stone for reps.

Here are more phenomenal pictures that local photographers, Jim Wallingford and Shannon Gill posted on his website:

Thank you to the city of Sequim for another awesome time at the 116th Irrigation Festival!  Can't wait for next year's show.
