Hi, :wave:
my name`s Annie, I`m 28 and I live in Poland. I`ve been a Lego fan for twenty years. .My favourite sets are Classic Castle. One week ago I managed to buy the set Forestmen`s Crossing, it`s simply amazing. Now I`m looking for The River Fortress :D
My hobbies are: Ancient history, drawing and the strongmen competitions. :)

Hi there, and welcome! Looking at the works of your fellow Polish members it seems you have quite a bit to live up to ;)

Oh, and congratulations on the Forestmen's Crossing purchase! It's one I'd like to have too.

And... of course I must inquire - what is that? :raiseone:

Strongmen competitions are organized in many cuntries: USA, Poland, Russia, Germany...
The competitors are athletes, ex-bodybuilders or powerlifters. They have to for example pull a truck, carry a shield, load the stones. I`m sure you heard about them :wink:
Here are some photos:

I supposed it was something along those lines you meant. I do find that phenomenon more than a wee bit intriguing, if not exactly my cup of tea ;)

I had a classmate called Ola once.. and since I haven't seen him in a few years I'll just assume you abducted and put him in Poland then ;)
