It's on!
« on: October 04, 2016, 07:28:01 AM »
Just submitted my openers for RPS Power Challenge this weekend.  Everything has gone wrong leading up to this meet, so it should be interesting.  Just need to grow a set for Saturday.  First time doing one event, just doing deads.  Wifey is on a girls weekend, so I figured I could bring my three kids and just do the final event.  Should be interesting.  Opening with five hundo.   :P

Good luck, but why not full power?

I'll have my three kids with me 12, 10, and 7.  Just figured they would never last through a full day.  I've done this meet twice in the past and it's LONG.  Rules are at 12, and you're lucky to leave by 9.  My kids would be toast, or I'd go to jail for killing them.

Morning is women.  The little guys like me (198 and under) usually start around 2, but the rules are super early given how long the meet goes.  Sunday is the big guys like you.  It's a big meet.  I'm planning on just getting there at the end of the bench with my kids, getting my lifts in and going home. Just need to dial in what time to actually get there.  With a 500 opener I'm guessing I'll be third flight, so that gives me even more time.  As crappy as my training went this go around, I'm starting to get excited about the meet.  I't my 7th one.  Did my first one at 40, but this is my first time not doing full power.
