The weights are (lightweight/heavyweight):

Axle clean and press 220/260

Axle DL (obviously depends on the athlete!)

Farmers 250/280 (per hand)

Tire should be 600/700 or thereabouts, and the sled still needs to be tested on the Astroturf.

The new stones haven't been tested but should be approximately 210<315/230<335.

I think it's going to be one hell of an event!
