This year Gary Valentine’s meet has been designed to encourage more CrossFitters to come by and and compete. Read Gary’s below.
Sign up for the Beast of the East Olympic Lifting Challenge!!!
“This years Oly meet at the Beast will be expanded to encourage Beast participants to enter throughout the weekend and have results included in the Open competition.”
“Last years meet was a huge success, with a wide variety of competitors in age and experience level. Team Connecticut ’s Gary Valentine, www.connecticutweightlifting.com, Oly coach to many crossfitters in New England and Director for 3 other meets per year in Connecticut , will again be Meet Director for 2012. Not a USAW sanctioned event, this Club type meet will feature some changes that will allow us to be more flexible and inclusive. Lifters will not be required to join USAW to compete, and rules, such as the pressout and the number of attempts, will be relaxed to encourage participation. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the excitement and camaraderie of the sport of weightlifting, while encouraging crossfitters to improve their Olympic lifts! “
“All lifters will receive t shirt and Participant medal, with final results being announced Sunday afternoon and on the website. You may enter and lift anytime during the weekend, Pre Registration will allow us to schedule your lift times more accurately. “
