Re: Chalk for lifting stones?

The reason was, that a bottle of liquid stuff could be altered to include something more sticky. It just could open a can of worms. This was voted on many years ago.

Re: Chalk for lifting stones?

Peter,
I have chalk with me, but on various times the stones have ben wet, or as in the Dinnies when I did them first time it was raining and the Inver stone was covered in snow!!

We don't allow liquid chalk for any grip comps.

A towel to dry the stone is more effective.

I run a grip contest at them, but there hasn't been one since 25 May, 2019, due to Covid.

Good stuff. There's always a gym near by, if there are stones around. :D

Re: Criccieth Stone of Strength Challenge Day 2014

Yes it is, a big smooth egg-shaped stone. No real gripping areas too.
Yes it does have a long history of being a strength test.

That stone looks really awkward to lift.

Does the Criccieth Stone have a illustrious history?
