I think it will be a pretty well watched event. I dont think they have spammed the masses with the link enough though. This type of thing could be good for powerlifting. If it ever wants to go to another level, we need people like Mark Bell, and people who can market the sport.

If someone can make the sport appealing to 20 year old men, then it will grow.

People complain that meets are too long, but that's a paper thin excuse. Natural bodybuilding and figure events take up to 2 days, yet are filled with competitors.

My friend is the sports commissioner for the city of Fayetteville, NC. He told me that he could get me a large facility (seating for 1k+) for a meet with no problem. Would even help with money, food, exc. I am going to work on putting something together.

I think we need more meets like that. Things that aren't in conference rooms under fluorescent lights.

Fayetteville isn't that far from me. I'd travel for sure if you put something together.

I can't tune in for ST meet, but will be looking for the videos later. 720 raw is just unbelievable. I gotta see that.

Sounds awesome, wish i lived closer!

I will be tuned in, Lord willing! I agree if we can get the younger guys interested then this sort will grow...however not many are interested in being strong as those that love the look of being strong...Smh
