Here is a compilation of some powerlifting and olympic lifting by many members of the B & W crew. This video only took about four hours to make (compared to eight hours for the last one), so I'm getting a little more efficient making these. That might mean more videos sooner :)

Ironworx Gym of Circleville, OH and the Dogg House Gym of Columbus, OH collaborated to host this charity event April 7, 2013. Each year, we choose a meet to use as a fundraiser for the Circle Area Humane Society, a no-kill shelter and adoption center. We obtain various items from generous sponsors and hold a big raffle toward the end of the meet. The proceeds are used to purchase dog/cat food, litter, cleaning supplies, treats, etc.
We were pleased to introduce some new blood to our great sport.
