on competing, and training to compete

Hi guys,
I'm looking for advice and information, so any help would be appreciated. I've been training for 6 years, and realise that without setting some targets, I won't make any real progress. I'm looking to enter powerlifting and weightlifting competitions, then move on the strongman type competitions. What I'd like to know is:

a) anyone have any information on powerlifting and weightlifting competitions. The info on anything recent seems to be rather thin

b) I'm in east london, and while I go to a decent gym, does anyone know of any training places nearby I can do some strongman type training?

c) For novice strongman comps, what's are good lifts to have to enter? I'm all of gaining experience, but I'd like to know I was beaten because others were simply better rather than I just wasn't strong enough. If it helps, I've got a 150kg bench, and 180kg squat, and a 210kg deadlift

Thanks in advance for all your help with this, and keep up the good work.

    Genesis in Park royal has some event equipment (thats where i'm training at the moment)

    your squat is good enough for novice strongman comps, deadlift needs some work (220-230), overhead presses like pushpress count for more than bench in strongman

    tbh your stats are good enough to do novice strongman comps......whats your push-press like....?
    as long as you can push press 80k+ on an olly bar for reps then that would be fine to.Just get involved .You meet some good people and get some good advice...

    Thanks-my shoulder press is at 100kg (including the bar) for 3. I'm working on getting my deadlift over the 500 mark.
