THE MOST POWERFUL LIFTING EVENT TO EVER HIT THE CAROLINA'S
YOUR ANCESTORS HELD CELEBRATIONS WITH THE TURNING OF EVERY SEASON
These gatherings were extremely powerful and all about the cycle of life and nature.
The Gaelic people used to light massive fires at the end of October to show that light was winning over darkness, and it was used to empower the tribe.
It was an opportunity to throw your weaknesses into the fire, coming out better and stronger.
This ritual helped people become their best selves and continue moving forward.
Adn we've decided to have our own Samhain celebration on November 4th (but with a Norse twist).
We're going to have a deadlift challenge in front of numerous fires.
Your friends and community will be there to support you and help you get cast out your weaknesses in the flames.
It's not about competing with others; it's about challenging yourself.
It doesn't matter if you're new to lifting or have been doing it for a long time. Everyone will get something good out of this.
Don't want to compete? No worries!
This event is free for spectators.
We'll have food, drinks, axe throwing, and games for the kids.
So bring your family and friends and join us for a victorious time!
