The RPS Redemption III, out on by Bert & Mindy Underwood, will be a great Meet. I know both of them, and their work ethic to put on a kick ass Meet is awesome. They get sponsors and hook the lifters up.
That's a few hours drive, but i would like to do it so I'll just get a hotel the prior night.  I would like to do one before then though.

Drive down to Clearwater and do that one? It's not too far from you and the place has great food :p My Mom mentioned this one to me if I wanted to fly down so my family could come watch.

Maybe just use it as a tune up for a later meet? It would be a nice introduction to the meet environment and you could drive there and back without having to stay anywhere.

I wanted to do this one! I heard they had a real good turnout last year.

Aren't they on probation?

There are so few meets in Florida that I may end up doing this also.

I just came across a post on USPLA Fl from Rich that battle of the bay was completely filled and closed as of Dec 30th. So much for that meet.

They were up at the RPS New Jersey Meet last weekend and are, from my understanding, back in Gene's good graces.

It looks like you're getting squeezed out in every direction.
Jump in on Bert & Mindy's Meet.  They are great people and they'll run a top notch Meet.

Equipped nationals? Will you run into the same issue as the other meet? New Port Richey isn't far from Clearwater. Would take you the same time (probably a little less) to get there so that could be an option too.

Whatever meet you pick 1st, I would talk with other competitors and ask them what are the best meets that they like.

sorry, I was just copy pasta the all the APF FL meets.  The equipped one was red on the page, I didn't do that.
I'm interested in the NPR one on April 2nd.
Possibly the August meet.

Several of the guys I talked to yesterday (world class lifters)  all said RPS is a great meet. So that's definitely on the list.
