    How similar are the events at the UK strongest man, to say the regional qualifiers? Also do the weights of equipment vary at all or are they similar?

    cheers

    this competition starts at 12.30pm, Sunday 29th July 2007

    venue: Lichfield rugby union club, tamworth rd, Lichfield,

    We have had some good press, with the local free paper in Tamworth & lichfeild running a story and its being on Trouh FM radio alday today, and the daily paper Express and star doing a story too, so with a little luck with weather should have a big crowd.

    hope to see sum of you there?
