Default How was the show?

To you all who competed or attended, how was the show this year IYO?

And where are all the candid pics? I need some photos for our banner this coming Sunday.

Welcome home!

It was great! For the amount of competitors they had, everything ran really smoothly. Pam Betz and her crew did a fantastic job.

I know that Suzanne has a pic of her and I on her camera. Hopefully she'll upload it. I have one of myself and Jackie Swaim too I'll try to post later tonight.

Whatever happened with the group pics?? I totally missed them

the show ran very smooth in my opinion. backstage was very organized. they only let competitors back there and there was plenty of room to put your stuff in a corner, have your feet up or pump up.

the hotel is very nice but it is in a location where you have to take a cab to go anywhere. i brought ALL my food with me so i didnt have to eat at the hotel which they did have food for the competitors but it was very expensive. overall the crew that ran the whole show did an awesome job!

i also missed the group shot.

This is my favorite show of all NPC shows. It's easy to get to - flying into (without bad weather) is easy. Getting to the venue is convenient and about 5-10 minute ride from the airport. The venue is attached to the host hotel so it makes it easy to get to and from everything. The press pit is big so you can go in and out without any problems. Hall is big for the sponsor booths. Pam and the crew do a great job of things running smoothly.

Only negatives this trip were:
Weather sucked for many trying to get in - can't do much about that.
The venue was smoken hot on Friday night's prejudging and everyone was roasting. Whatever was wrong was taken care of the next day and was much better.
The emcees at night were unorganized and kinda slowed things down. Kenny Kassel used to do the emcee job but hopefully next year whomever does it keeps the night show moving better.

I am sorting through candid shots now. Here's one of our resident king, Tre.

The show was very well run and mingling with the girls backstage and doing interviews was great! Much better experience than in previous years.

The show was ran great from what I saw of it. I had to leave early to hit the hospital.

Holly took a pic of Suzannen and myself that she said she'd send to you, Sioux.

We got a Tight Curves shot quickly so I'll look for that and get it posted.

I have competed at Jr Nats twice and attended twice to watch friends. It is a very well run show.

Isaac was right friday night it was HOT in there.

It was a VERY well run show...very organized...made everything run as smoothly and quickly as possible!

Friday night it was definitely HOT in the venue, but i'm usually freezing so i didn't mind too much.

I was definitely impressed with how smoothly everything went!
