Yep, I just talked to her and Tim over here at the host hotel. She and another competitor, Abby Spencer, looked terrific!!! Saw Roxanne up there as well: great job!! IFBB pro bodybuilder Tazzie Colomb is here as well, got to talk to her for like 25 minutes. She looks AMAZING as always. IFBB fitness pro Trish Warren is in attendance, and Branch Warren is a guest poser as well as Tazzie. According to one of the promoters there are supposed to be other IFBB pros in attendance this evening, but he wasn't for sure exactly who. So far it's been a GREAT show, and this is just prejudging: the night show is suppossed to be packed out!! For future reference, IMHO I highly recommend those SC members here in the Midwest consider making this one of the shows not to miss.

Thanks everyone. Night show starts at 6 and we are getting ready to leave. Did my hair and makeup a bit different for the evening show just for the fun of it. We are having a blast. Abby is doing very well. This is her first NPC show and I did her training. She is having a ball. Marilyn took that picture to show off the best tan I ever got. Not just saying that either. Simply the best tan ever.

MUAH to you all.

I had a GREAT time with KATE!! I took those pics with my blackberry between pre judge and night show!! She is much much darker that that shows LOL! A photographer I am NOT!! I think Tim will be getting some good shots at the night show (which for the girls is over by now) I had to drive back to Cincy after PJ and could not attend the night show. This is a very nice show though...great venue. Would def be a good show to do next year yaall!

i have met the promoters of this show and they are very nice people!! Looks like everyone had a great time and i hardly recognized Gail Auerbach!!! Our overall jr usa winner!!

I know she is wanting to make a great showing next year at the jr nationals and from the looks of it she is right on track!!! Keep u p the good work and i am sure i will hear from her via text on how much fun she had at this show.

Good Morning, A little food in my belly and a nice spike in my sugar levels and I am feeling very good. :)

I did place 5th in open and 3rd in masters. I was very pleased with these results and to get through the show keeping my hypoglycemia under control. YEAH

My little Abby took 4th in her first NPC show and looked beautiful.

Overall...this show is a great one to do and the promoters are fantastic. Very well run, smooth and friendly.! We will post pics when we get home. It was so great to see Suzanne, Chase, Fitgirly and so many more. Branch Warren looks amazing... SO glad to of course see Jeremy again and Jenn Cowan. Jeremy's support is absolutely amazing and so appreciated.

Wish we could have stayed longer and met up with more people but we had hour drive home and early AM cardio

It was cool Gail and I got to do together since we have trained a lot together over the last couple months. We are prob going to her gym tomorrow to train.

It was great seeing everyone at the show! It is so much fun to get everyone together to chat and catch up! Congrats to all the competitors! It takes a lot to diet down and get on stage as we all know. I am proud of all of your hard work!

There were about a 115 competitors in this show. Not huge but not too small either. It was just so well ran and the people backstage...expiditors etc...were so great with everyone.

There were soooo many top competitors attending this show...by that I mean in the audience. It was so nice to see so many familiar faces.

Branch looked Amazing and I have to tell you probably the best guest posing routine I have seen. When he walked out on stage peoples mouths just dropped. You see a lot of the pro's pose that aren't competition ready obviously but then you get to see one that is and it's quite a site. UMMM I didn't realize I was going to appear taller or the same height. I just had my flippy flops on. LOL

IFBB Fitness pro Trish Warren was also in attendance that evening.

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w80/femphysiquefan/Siouxcountry/DSC00900.jpg

THIS guy was THE hit of the evening!! His name is Nick Scott, and he is the chairman of Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. (www.wheelchair-bodybuilding.com). He competed as the lone entry in the wheelchair division, and performed in the most tricked-out wheelchair I have ever seen...complete with spinning rims, track lighting on the undercarriage, and a license plate on the back that lit up and said "Beast!!!"

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w80/femphysiquefan/Siouxcountry/DSC00902.jpg

Here is a video I found online in which Nick shares his amazing life story:

Jeremy thanks for posting your photos! :camera: What are you studying?

:)

You're welcome, SC!! Well, I'm currently taking online courses through a local community college in Indiana called Ivy Tech in order to get a Technical Certificate as a Pharmacy Technician. I'm having to take Anatomy and Physiology for the SECOND time because I did well in the course, but fouled up on the final (even if you have a perfect score going into the final, if you don't pass it you fail the course). I've NEVER had to study so much content before: you really have to know just about everything when it comes to the human body!! Currently I have a 95% in the course, but the first major test is this Saturday so we'll see.

Hey Sioux...thanks for the main page picture with Branch. What a nice suprise. I am done for this year and heading to the Olympia this week. I had photo shoots the last two weekends and then yesterday I had to have surgery to repair my left implant...I was part of a study and they found in my MRI that one of the implants was looking damaged. (I remember a chest press falling on me a few months ago). It wasn't leaking but they replaced and then also moved them to under the muscle so it's like a new Aug. I also went a little larger in size...not much but a little since they were changing them anyway. So yesterday felt pretty good with all my pain meds but today I am really sore. We leave Thursday morning for Vegas where I am SUPPOSE to shoot some training videos for a website. I just hope I can come up with some not using my upper body. :( I don't want to dissapoint the owners of that company. I have a lot of friends from out of the country coming in for the shows so I am exicted about being able to see them and hang without the stress of anything else. :) Then it's time to get busy again on more development on my lower body and work on things for next year. I have also taken on several new clients so it's keeping me busy and the store is just going NUTS. My life seems to never slow down. Ok off to do some shopping for next week and visit my girlie Kira this afternoon. :)
