Contest Reminiscing: 2002 Super Grip Challenge

This was my first contest.  It was an official USAWA event held at Amy and Kevin Fulton’s farm in Litchfield, Nebraska.  This was a perfect first contest for me in many ways.  The focus – grip – was exactly what I had been training for 2 years by this contest.  The people were magnificent, friendly, and went out of their way to help me improve on all of the events.
