Kevin Nee thought we were doing a "Keg Stand", not a Keg Toss.

HIGA pressing the 170 lbs Circus Dumbbell.

"The Wolverine" Brad Dunn pressed a HUGE 407 lbs axle press!

Luckily, HIGA was able to beat Zack in this event!

HIGA about to lift a 350 lbs atlas stone.

I ended up getting 6 reps & barely missed a 7th rep.

My ohana drove from Bremerton to Sequim to cheer me on.  Mahalos!
