The Beast in the East Steel Bending Competition will be held this Saturday, May 14th, at 10AM. Some of the best steel benders in the United States will be converging on Exton, PA to compete for hundreds of dollars in cash and prizes.
There will be unbraced, braced, and horseshoe bending events that will leave the most well rounded bender of steel standing atop the podium when the dust settles.
First prize is $200 in cash and $50 in calibrated bending stock. There will be cash prizes for the top 3 spots and the top spot in the novice category.
Everyone is welcome and good times and great food will be had by all.
