FWIW Dave is coming down to Herc Saturday July 29th for some squat work. Might be a good time for some lifters to get some mono work :p

Maybe I could come out and knock some equipment over!  Not even kidding about that.  Might take some effort to knock a mono over though.

LOL could just drop the mono on me, again  ;D

We are shooting for 11ish if interested.

I'd forgotten about that lol.  Maybe Bando could come out and we could all take turns crowning you with the mono, for old time's sake.  Not sure what I'll be up to next Saturday, but I'll shoot you a message ahead of time if I can get out there.

Just saw that.  I've been wondering if it would stay a 2 day or not, since Utica wound up condensed into 1.  Hopefully Saturday won't run quite as long though  :o

It's typically a bigger meet than SS so I'm betting it's 14 hours.

I want to come support everyone but good grief, why not a couple days where the lifting ends at 3 or 4?  :S

Thanks for the info. Works for me as I wanted to watch all of you and some of the Herc folks. Marcus Morris is going for an all time world record squat at 181 - 770 I believe.

Just don't park by the venue.  Worst neighborhood ever.  (Well, maybe not THE worst, but definitely in the running.)

It's typically a bigger meet than SS so I'm betting it's 14 hours.

 :o

Damn.  At least in Utica I only had to drive 5 minutes back to my hotel.  I'll be driving back to Rochester after this meet.  Yay.

So park and walk? I think I'd rather take my chances parking. :o

Well I'm definitely doing something other than a $200 a night hotel room.

It's all fun and games being debt free until you get 4k in home insurance/town/village/taxes all within 4 weeks  >:(

Ha!  No, parking in front of the venue during the meet was totally fine last year.  I meant if Bando was thinking of sleeping in his car, I wouldn't park anywhere near that neighborhood overnight.

If I don't get out of there until after 10pm again I won't be happy.

But at least our Sunday will be better.

The venue could be interesting in the dark, it relies pretty heavily on outside light through the windows.  It was getting pretty dark in there at 7pm last year lol.

Bando, have you looked at airBNB?  Not sure how crazy you'd be about crashing on a stranger's couch or in their spare room for the weekend, but it would be a halfway point between a $200 hotel and sleeping in the car.  Just a thought.

I did, I'm leaning towards camping nearby.
