PDX Powerlifting Proudly Presents

Night of the Living Deadlift 2018

A deadlift competition and costume party



I want to help out with this party!

When: October 27, 2018 @ 6pm
Where: PDX Strength

Meet Directors: Tim Mercer & Jackie Mercer

Prizes: In addition to product tosses, and door prizes, we'll give awards and prizes for the following categories:

  • Best Lifter Male: Based on allometric scoring using body-weight
  • Best Lifter Female: Based on allometric scoring using body-weight
  • Best Lifter Costume Male
  • Best Lifter Costume Female
  • Best Crowd Costume

Unsanctioned:  This contest is unsanctioned so there's no membership to purchase. Anyone (21 years of age and over), is welcome to compete!

Raw or Equipped: This event is open to only raw lifters. Lifters can wear belts only. No suits, straps, or anything else but your costume!

Lifting Attire:  Lifters can wear any clothing they like, but they will likely be scorned if they don't wear a costume. So, put together your best costume to deadlift in!
