Three friends and I drove up to a local lake on Saturday and had various "strongman" competitions using rocks and logs provided by nature. I didn't have a way to keep track of exact weights and distances, but I kept a log of sorts anyway, along with a few pictures.
Rock PickUp and Run: ~50 lbs, ~50 yds. Took 24 seconds.
Stone Shotput: No idea weights/distance, but that first picture is me giving it a go.
Log Drag: A big dead piece of wood that got easier the further we took it, as pieces kept cracking and falling off
Rock Line Shuffle: This involved moving a progessively larger series of five rocks from one spot to another, a distance of about twenty feet. My grip was pretty much shot by then. My digital camera was full by then and I didn't get any pictures.
We had a foot race from the creek where we did most of our lifting down to the shore of the lake: I lose every race, and this one was no exception.
I hopped in the (very cold) lake for a quick swim. Tried to convince one of my friends to go in the water too, by means of olympic-style wrestling, but as he's a wrestler and I'm not, it didn't really work out
Then we all ate burritos at a vegan-friendly shop in Cameron Park. I easily won this event, pounding down two one-pound vegan burritos, a liter of pepsi, chips with guacamole, and chips with salsa

Here are some pictures of the day's events. My first time posting pictures, hopefully it works ok. I'm the skinhead-looking sort tossing the rock in picture #1 and sporting the log in picture #4
