Fuck me I am broken but I am in like Flynn.

May or may not be able to bench my shoulder is fucked beyond fucked; I can barely sleep or wipe my ass but I will be there.

I'm kind of hokey pokey on this one.  I really want to go, but it's tough to be away for a weekend in the spring or fall with the sports my kids are in.  All the meets I've done have been close to home.

Regardless of where it is though, my attendance will be determined by my finances.  It's been a rough year.  But I'm training, so hey, who knows.

It left Hercules, because Gene and Rheta had a disagreement.

All that aside, This Meet lines up with when my next one is.  It's time to get the Band back together again.

At the rate we're headed east, we'll be in Albany for 2018  :P

I was going to say "hey, why don't they move it to Central Terminal in Buffalo", and then I remembered that venue doesn't have any heat or running water over the winter.  So yeah, not sure if they'd be able to host anything in the spring or not  ;D

Does this meet get full? I'm thinking about doing it but not sure at this point. Wondering how early i would need to sign up?

IIRC it sold out when it was a 1-day, now that it's 2 days you might have a little leeway.  Or you may not, they get more popular all the time.  Yeah, like John said, end of Feb should be safe timing, that's probably about when I'll have to make my decision as well.

Wife and I do a week vacation in April to celebrate her birthday 4/18, my birthday 4/21 and our anniversary 4/16 every year. We work it in when the kids have off vacation and ship them to their respective other parents :)

When I lifted with him in August he spent 20 minutes talking about beating your squat. I would say you have a target squarely on your ass (no homo).

I'm looking at a hotel with a Pool.  Two young and overactive boys, need an outlet for energy expenditure, otherwise, Alex and Sabrina coup'd up in a hotel room, will go sideways.

Has anyone looked at or speculated hotels in the area? Again, like previous years, it'd be great to be all in the same hotel.

Dude.
Really?

True story though, I used to bench more than I could squat and/or deadlift...   took a while for DL and Squat to pass and finally normalize into the whole Deadlift > Squat > Bench.

Still, a strong maybe for me. Should know in the next couple of weeks and I'll sign up and book a hotel as well.

Trying to get the wife to give it a run, she is 50/50, but the last meet I was at... let me quote this.. "Those girls can squat and dead-lift, but they bench pussy weight." So, I think she is in as well...     she'll be 48... fuck I am getting old.

Really just trying to dial in vacation plans already.. so that I can lock this meet in.

There goes my cutting plan....    not a good year to start losing weight... lol.

I thought I just slap a Post-it note on it and I was all set?


But seriously, this was an angry moment.  Gene has Payment for both registrations. Ame has us both in the Database, we both have reciepts.  The only way this came up, is because I check my bank accounts like a paranoid truther.  I noticed that only one payment had gone through, when yesterday, I know there were two.

Called the Bank.  "Yes, we assumed it was fraud." "It's not Fraud, can you please resend the payment." "We're sorry, but once it's been cancelled, we can't reauthorize it." "Da Fuck?!!?!"

So, email Gene and Ame. Yes, we all have receipts. Yes, it appears the money is there. One of those will be rejected, I'll send the payment asap.

Fuck Me.

So, how do they break up the two days?  I've done one big two day rps a few times that breaks it up by weight class.  I've done another big two day rps where they kept the geezers together in one group.  If they do it that way there would be more people from IS on the same day.  Still not sure I can break away for a weekend in the spring with the spring sports my kids are in, but being there for one day vs two would help.

Usually ladies and the lightweight dudes Saturday morning, middleweight dudes Saturday afternoon, big dudes Sunday morning.

What? You don't like dogs...or grandparents?? Lol, thanks Jim, I'll let you know when we square away the details. Just wifey and I!

No pets or drooling old people allowed in my SRT  :D

If you want you can drive to our place and leave your car there and carpool with us to Utica.  I posted earlier we're probably going to stay at the Hampton Inn there.

Bummer, that's the way they do it at the October rps meet here.   I like the way they do it at an April rps meet here.  They stick all the geezers together Saturday morning.

That's because Jamie runs his a bit different than Gene and Ame.
If it isn't a sell out show, and Gene runs it in one day, it'd be nice.  I did learn, at the last one, it's tough for Sabrina and I to compete in the same session. I had to wrap her knees while I was warming up for Squats.  Had to hand off to her while I was warming up Bench.  Deads, she was actually warming up while I was benching. I almost missed her Deads, because I was warming up.  Being in separate sessions is much easier for us to handle. Plus, if it comes to it, one of us can leave with the boys.

Just looked at hotels.... $55 for a hotel room for Sabrina and I, with out a pool.  $115 with a pool. $165 with a pool and 2 boys. 3 nights... Ouch.

As it looks for me, I'll be Sunday Morning, Sabrina will be Saturday morning.  So, it's an extra day for us. It'll be difficult, as she'll weigh-in a day ahead of me, and be chowing food, while I'll be fasting as I wait for my weigh-in the following morning.

Just checked airfare. 308$ round trip from Reno NV to Syracuse NY..not bad at all
That's a good price, I should book my flights. Going to fly to Toronto, rent a sweet ride and drive down to Syracuse with Davey....will be racing him the whole way!
John had offered up his house for Dave's family, me and wifey, the 4 boys, my two dogs and gma and gpa:) ....oh and a couple cousins haha

You all can crash. Big house so we are all good  8)
I like you John, I would never bring that shit tornado into your home haha.
Nah just wifey and I, we are getting a room somewhere near ya! Anything to get away from the monsters!

I was just being nice  :P

It'll be my wife and I and my 3 kids as well.  We should rent a bus ;D seriously though we'll be leaving pretty late on the Friday I think (around 4) so will meet everybody there.  I noticed a Holiday Inn express around the corner from John's place when I was there.  That will most likely be what we end up doing with my big crew.  Or a tent in John's backyard 

Might want to stay closer to Utica. I'll likely hang Friday night with you guys but it would suck for you to have to make the trip more than once. Remember, you'll be lifting (depending on weight class) on Sunday where Shawn, Bando, Lisa will be on Saturday.

Because it's practically rotten when they make it.  It's all the nasty shit and leftovers.  Then they pump it full of sugar and chocolate flavor to mask it.

Lisa used to work with a guy that was Controller at a Dairy.  He loved chocolate milk.  Then he went into the plant and saw how they made it and what went into it.  Never drank it again.

I always wondered why chocolate milk never lasted as long in the fridge as regular milk.  Now I know.

Ya, the reason is the pasteurization process. Not sure about Canada but the choc milk here lasts longer than non-chocolate milk.

edit- I had to Google this; the shelf stable stuff is pasturized at much higher temps making it more sterile. The fridge stuff is made from fresh milk w/ added things like carrageenan ( or corn starch ) to thicken it up.  I doubt reputable places are using almost rotten milk to make it. Couldn't they just use that to make cheese? IDK.

I'm really on the fence with this meet. More from a financial perspective... it would seem my sister decided she was going to get married this year and I was boxed into being the MC AND one of the groomsmen. This will require Mrs.M and I to fly to Thunder Bay and then rental car it back to Dryden.

 Trust me that flight is not going to be cheap, even with porter....

 Plus it's Mrs.M and I's 10 year this year! We are planning an all-inclusive...again with the no-cheap.

 I'll have to see what I can muster up.....

Just a quick question. Me with my wonderful powers of observation didn't notice it's a 2 day event. For someone like me at my first event would I be lifting both days? or do they do beginners/amateurs type people on one day and pro/ geared lifters another? just need to inform my wife of the correct timings so she isn't caught unawares. I'm still in

General question for everyone about the meet:

1)Regarding weigh ins- Does RPS do 24 hr weigh in or 2hr?

2)I see Raw Classic and Raw Modern classes. Are knee sleeves permitted in Raw Classic? I've never squatted in wraps before and i'm considering which one to register for.

Saturday lifters can weigh in Friday night or Saturday morning.

Sunday lifters weigh in on Sunday morning.

Raw Classic = No knee protection.  If you wear sleeves or wraps you're in Raw Modern.

For Raw Classic you can wear sleeves if you pull them down to your ankles when you actually squat though.

Sunday lifters, get three chances to weigh-in, depending on which session you're in on Sunday.

If you're in the AM session on Sunday (heavy weight guys, usually 242 and Up), You can weigh-in, Saturday before lifting starts, Saturday afternoon, or Sunday Morning before lifting starts.  If you're Sunday afternoon, you can weigh-in Saturday Afternoon, Sunday morning, or Sunday, just before lifting starts.

In all honesty, weigh in as early as possible. More time to Carb load.

We're coming up Thursday night, so that Sabrina can weigh in ASAP on Friday AM. She gets to plow through food, while I wait out Friday without eating, so that I can weigh in on Saturday AM.  We'll be eating Saturday night, where ever, and then I lift on Sunday AM. 

We're staying at the same Holiday Inn, so it'll be easy for us as well.  We're in for Delmonico's.

Ah shit.....Looks like you aint lifting in this one. Wanted to see you hit 600 on the platform. Guess it will give me a reason to come back for another meet :D

On another note, i paid up and entered the meet today. 220 class, masters 40yr, raw modern...IN boyos

Sounds like a plan Saturday to have a big dinner with everyone

Not unless you go Ams.

I'd be in the 220s, too. I havn't completely ruled out stepping on the platform in April but not likely. Few things I had to consider. One my health. Need to get some things in check and have a follow up with my Dr. in May. The next was with everyone in town I'd like to actually be able to help on the platform while not having to worry about myself - Shawn and Dave coming in for their first meet and all I want to see them kill it and help as much as I can. Next, I can do a meet here at herc in June which is an Ams drug tested event where my kids can actually come. Finally when I out squat Flex I want it to be when he's up to speed. Not only will I out squat him in August I'll do 50lbs lighter, taller, and less Canadian too. :-X

Title: Re: Spring Supremacy 2017 - Get in or GTFO
Post by: John on February 03, 2017, 06:01:21 PM
John: what is Ams?

Amateur. There are three classes, Amateur, Pro and Pro Elite.

Ams- Drug tested
Pro- Anyone who has totaled or has single lifts that qualify for Professional (Pro) must enter this division. Also, not drug tested
Pro Elite- Those whose lifts qualify as Pro yet want to provide proof that they are not using any performance enhancements on the tested list.

I don't see that RPS is holding anything in ST. Pete.  Looks like Burritt is holding 2 in port st. Lucie and then there is the one in FT. Myers and that's all for FL this year.

Dunno, 30 was a little rough, 40 was fine, but 50 just sounds old. It's like my life is almost half over at this point, not ready for a 50th B-Day.

At any rate I should get the total, bench and deadlift RPS world records. Feel bad taking them from someone else, hope he got a certificate before Bando arrived on the over 50 scene.

I hope to capture 3 of the 4 records (will never get bench) in August just before I turn 50.

I have Squat and Deadlift.  Should be able to get the total (1550) as well.

Then I will grab 3 of the 4 over 50 records too in whatever comp I do next.

I might look for something in November so I can set 6 records in the same year.  :D

Not required unless it's changed, I've competed barefoot.

Post by: AlexanderOmand on February 23, 2017, 12:39:24 PM
Socks aren't required, as Gene has sterilizer on the platform to wipe down any incidents. If it's first or second attempt, and there's already a bloody shin, the judges will ask the lifter to cover the wound before their next attempt.
Your choice of footwear is wide open. Any woman competing in stilettos, gets white lights automatically.

Usually I come out of meets feeling great TBH, and I need to restrain myself from hitting the ground running in training the following week.  I've never been this close to a meet with so many existing physical issues though, so I'm a little  :o

Naw, it's fine, I've still got four weeks to fix stuff.

Managed yesterday to land a fever. Spent nearly all of the day, sleeping under blankets. Not liking this so close to the Meet.

But, it looks like I'll open with 515/315/580. Seconds will be 535/340/600. Judge 3rds after that.

I'll be ready the day of the Meet, as long as I can kick this fever and mentally pull myself together.

No idea about openers at all, I'll need to give it more time and see how my body is faring.  Working with the chiro @ Hercules and also on my own, it looks like we've solved the physical issue that was causing me to fail deadlift lockouts.  However, I'm still totally crooked / twisting / uneven hips / curved back, so... I don't know.  I'm not running a peaking program, I'll just be working on this stuff up until the day of the meet.  It will be interesting ;D

get well soon. At least you'll battle thru it now which is better than closer to the meet

Whew, 183.5 this morning. Can still afford to drop a couple lbs.

Will you do some water manipulation to drop a few lbs?

---------------------------------------

I'm thinking about these as openers: 350/225/475, second lifts 375/235/510

general question for RPS: Do they use lbs or kg plates?

I'm between 225 and something a bit lower to get the first lift out of the way and get a feel for the bench much like I'll be doing with squats. Still not sure.   Man your squat these past few months though 8) If I can end with your opener I'll be leaving on top of the world.

Gene's equipment is all in lbs, as far as I know.  My understanding is that for the RPS sanctioned meets that are farther away (farther than Gene would be able to drive his own equipment to), other people's competition grade equipment is used, and that could be in lbs or kgs.  Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

That makes sense bc I'm in Florida, even though Gene was there, it wasn't his equipment so it just defaults to whoever is hosting the meet.

Sold a home, bought a home, work life is nuts, promotion and a few other things.

Utica... is why Gene really wants to find a new venue for these Meets.

So, interestingly, the roster has not been posted for the Meet yet.  I know that Gene and Ame are busy with real life stuff, but I find it odd that it hasn't been uploaded yet.  Makes me wonder if it's a lower turnout than expected.  As well, I haven't received the email to put in Openers.

Should try them at Hercules. Plenty of parking and space  :P

I assume this was a stop gap and a new venue would appear next year. My guess is because of David Kingswater help this venue was chosen (just a guess). Honestly, the building itself is fine but parking is like zero and Utica is a shti hole.

Looked for the roster yesterday but figured it would be out this weekend. I'm sure its not sold out. Its a hike for those in Rochester who could just as easily wait until Aug when the meet is in Buffalo. USAPL has a few meets all summer, one in Syracuse in June, another in July in Latham (outside of Albany- close to Utica) and I personally know those who would have competed in Syr or Rochester who decided to just wait.

Ahhh... Gotcha.

Well, I just called to confirm my reservation at the Holiday Inn.  I had the email confirmation, but just wanted to follow-up and double check.  Because, if it were me, and the reservation was wrong, I'd sleep in my car, no problem. However, Sabrina, and the boys wouldn't be all that keen on it.
Good thing I double checked, as apparently, they had no listing whatsoever of me, my reservation, my room or anything. I even went in and rechecked from the Email confirmation.  Said it was good. Hotel had no listing.  Luckily, they had one room left, and I was able to book it.  Now, just waiting on the follow-up email confirmation.
Odd, though, as they had a few tidbits from my credit card, and some other info as well, like two adults and two kids....

Hope I didn't just get upsold and raped on Price...

Personally I'm glad, I look forward to competing along with all you stronger heavier guys and not be relegated to lifting with the Gals and Lightweights.

Sunday we can sleep in and have a nice breakfast somewhere, I suspect Saturday will be a long day.

Last year I brought a 98lb gal to Retribution, her opening bench was the bar.
Would that make you feel better?  :P

The bar alone is actually a huge % of BW for her  :o

I just thought it was funny that we've got 14 women, but we're missing the lowest 4 or 5 weight classes completely, lol.

When Lisa first started lifting she could not press the bar.

Neither could I.  I made great bench gains for the first six months, and it's barely moved since then  ;D ;D ;D

Also talked to Brad on FB last night and he's not coming, pretty disappointed as he is the guy I would like to see lift in person the most.

LOL whatever floats your boat. Water cutting for 3lbs is pretty silly, IMO. You could easily scale back some salt and carbs this week and then not eat past 6pm on Thurs and easily be under but I guess the hard way works too  :P

FWIW if my buddy Eric was 3lbs the day before a weigh in he'd click his heels with joy.

As I look through the Roster, there's 2 flights for the morning session. 17 lifters in each one. Afternoon session has 3 flights.

If lifting starts at 830am, the morning session will likely be done at Noonish....  There will likely be a break for lunch, and then PM Session hopefully starts at 1ish.  And should wrap by 530.

It'll be a very quick day.

Had a good day. Had an awesome day with the I-S crew.

Sabrina, went 375/210/410 and I went 530/350/580.
Nearly passed out on my 600 deadlift attempt. Vids soon...

I had a great time lifting with everyone!  It's always fun to hang out with my meet buddies, and got to meet some new ones as well  :)  I hope everyone was proud of how they did, there was a lot of heavy lifting going on!

I was on the verge of cancelling a few times last week with physical issues, but thanks to some luck, some Advil, and an emergency chiro session at 8pm the night before the meet, my body thankfully held up well for 270/140/320 @ 185.

Now I just need to keep working on the physical issues, drop some fat and increase the weight on the bar.  Last two parts are the story of my life  ;D

You did great on the platform, your squats looked really good. Nice meeting you!

I had a great meet, huge thanks to John for all his help. I Finished with 390/240/535 for total of 1165.

The IS crew was representing in a big way and kicking ass

Alex, give those boys a hug from me!


I am pretty sure that I captured every PM session lift on vid (too nervous in the AM session to film).  Mr Flexy is the tech guy in the house, so I'll let him sort them and upload them to wherever people would like them.

I had to go out and get food.
We heard the rumble as you left, and I thought to myself, "he must be getting food because there's no way he ran out of Beer."

Where to start? First things first,

Thank you, Jim, for this home on the Web.  It's weekends like this one, that remind me of how far we are apart, yet so close. I don't think I've seen Jim and Lisa in 2 years, but it was like it had been just a day.  I now have live faces to go with the names on here. I had an absolute blast this weekend.  Today, I feel like I've been hit by a Truck.  It wasn't my best showing, but this one, by far, is my favorite Meet out of all that I've done. Seeing that pic of all of us together has more emotion in it, than everything on BB.com combined.

Sabrina had a great weekend, and the boys lived it up.  I was honestly worried that Bowen was going to adhere himself to Miss Lisa's side and talk hockey all weekend.  Then Jim fired up the Charger and Bowen nearly lost his mind (He's a Nascar Nut).

We had a long drive home (made it here at 3pm), and I crashed for a 90 minute nap.  The other three napped in the car on the 4+ hr drive.

As it stands for a Next Meet, Sabrina is doing Rheta's Pro/AM in October, and I'm looking at November in New Jersey.

A huge Thank You, to all of you.  Kell, in particular, for hanging out the entire day, and shooting all the video's of myself and Sabrina.

If anyone has vids of me and Sabrina, I would love to see them. Please feel free to Youtube it, and PM me a Link!

And the Results are posted!

Will do! Bowen asked when we were going to see you all again! Apparently he liked talking hockey with you.

Alex I might do the NJ meet with you.

We have all your lifts and all of Sabrina's lifts on video.

I'm done for tonight and almost ready for bed as I am working tomorrow morning but I can make you each a vid tomorrow night if you want.

Just PM me your actuals weights because they didn't have the screen with the numbers like previous meets.

We had a blast.  Great to see you again and meet your new family.  :)

I never thought I'd ever have kids.  Now, love these two like they're my own.
Sabrina, love her like no other I've ever had in my life.

Sabrina went. 375 (missed 390), 210, and 410 at 153lbs.
I went 530 (missed 540), 350, and 580 (nearly passed out on 600).

And you final Deadlift, was like the Badass Stamp of Approval.  A bit fitting, that the last and heaviest Deadlift for I-S was by the owner himself.

Took a day away from your studies and lifting. A day away from from your kids and wife. A day that should have been 8 hours, but was 14.

Not for a second got negative, never got tired, always coaching, spotting, cheering.

My back is fried, but I guess it was before the meet, too  ;D  Deads tightened up my right calf, so I need to work on getting that loosened up before my leg drags my back off to the side again.  Sigh.  No gym today, will likely head in tomorrow and do something light.  Very light.  Very very light.

Or maybe I'll just go in and talk to people  ;D

JS - 281.2 - 610/325/600 - 1535 - Wilks: 795.13
AO - 238.6 - 530/350/580 - 1460 - Wilks: 786.21

If I'd locked my 600 Dead, I'd have a 796.98.

Look for a Rematch in November in Jersey.

So I'm finally back from my NYC vacation. I had an awesome time at the meet in Utica. First, thanks to Jim for the shirts. It's pretty cool to see so many IS shirts at the meet. It was great to see and meet so many people and put a live face to a user name. Everyone's strength is pretty amazing when you see it in person. Seeing Lisa's smile after every completed lift is inspiring. Hard to not see she's happy. You made it look easy for sure. Jim's comeback from that injury is nothing short of amazing in so short a time. And a Squat pr to boot. Shawn's record attempt to lunge with 435? on your back. Starting a new trend lol. I can't remember everything that happened, it was a long day but congrats again to everyone that was there.

My personal account for the meet was 315,335,355(pr) 275,290(fail >:() 290 ;D and 455,470,(pr),485(pr) Jim if you have the vids still you can post them

John you wanted an opinion on NYC? simply put a mad house. I can't understand why anyone would want to live there. Wall to wall people. Some really cool things but just nuts in general. I don't know how there isn't more people run over.

No. No game. Too expensive and then add exchange. Jays were playing too but it was long days abd we were tired.

Rich, I'm pretty sure we filmed all of your lifts.  Jim can take a look this weekend and compile them into one.

So glad you made the long trip down for the meet.

Lisa got all your lifts for sure.

I downloaded them to my computer.  I'll make you a vid like the one I did for myself and Andrew tonight.

I have the squat and deadlift in the 275 class and squat, deadlift and total in the fat guy 308 class.

5 world records.

Last 3 I stole from some dude that only set them on April 1st.  Poor bastage.  :D

That's awesome. Thanks a ton. I can see where I went wrong on my second bench attempt. Shawn you're definitely right about it being to far up.

Rich, I'm so sorry about that missing vid!


Nothing to worry about at all Lisa. Thanks for filming us all.

Great vid! 

LOL I think all I have left are state records across multiple weight classes.  Once upon a time I had one or two world records, but they've been buried 100 times over by now.  Those world records are getting steep.

Side note...

Due to her 995 Total at this Meet, Sabrina qualified to compete at the Arnold 2018. 

SO, that's Rheta's Meet in October, and the Arnold in March 2018.

Bando, if there's a pic, or a vid, I can confirm the amount on the Bar.

How does one determine if they "qualify" to lift at a certain event, such as the Arnold???

You check your total against what's on the XPC Page.

XPC is a league within RPS.

I'd have to total 1755 at 242 to qualify.

308 class, Raw, 1815 total.

Post by: itsagoodday on May 15, 2017, 03:14:27 PM
Not surprised Sabrina qualified, she is strong as hell! 

I noticed they raised all the raw qualifiers for XPC again this year.  If by some miracle I start closing in on it (which would take a painful combination of me dropping weight classes and adding weight to the bar), they'd probably just keeping adding another +50 and move it farther away again lol.

What's really tough, is as strong as she is, she didn't even make the PLW list for women.  Those numbers are just amazing to see.  A few years back, it was rare to see strong women at a Meet.  Now, they're really showing there own.  You're on the right path, Kel, don't give in.

Yep, then you realize that there are limits to what is physically possible.  I'm working to build into the 275 class a few lbs at a time.  So, I won't have to worry about my weight when I weigh in. 

I look at PLW, and I just have to be happy with progress that I make.  Otherwise, I'll land in a tailspin.

Only trouble with plw is if the meet directors do not submit your #'s they never get it right if you submit on your own.  The last meet I did isn't on there, and it puts me in a pretty good position on the squat, deadlift, and total.  I never even come close on bench.  It makes no difference if it gets posted on there other than an ego boost for me.

My PLW subscription expired, which is fine because I don't even want to think about those numbers right now  ;D 

XPC has been on my radar of goals.  My ideal lifting weight actually seems to be around 160-165.  Below that, I start getting pretty darned lean and my joints start complaining.  Above that and my leverages on deads and squats suffer.  My goal has been to get back down to 160-165, and from past experience, I should be able to maintain my current total down to that weight.  If I fix the rest of the physical crap that's holding me back, I wouldn't be surprised to have a total in the ballpark of 750@165.

For XPC though, the aim would be to try for 855@148.  Not completely impossible in this lifetime, but nobody hold your breath either :P

Oh well.  Currently working on (1) drop weight back to 160's and (2) fix physical crap.  We'll see how successful those two things are lol.

That's odd, as every time I've submitted records for myself and various other people, they've never missed it.  As well, every Meet I've been a director for, I've submitted the records and they've posted it.  I feel it's honestly a disservce to the lifters if they don't submit them.  When teh guys that run PLW used to have more time, they'd collect all the results on RPS website, and Ame didn't have to submit them.  Of course, that'd take sometimes 3 months.  So, now, everytime one of my lifters competes, I make sure to get them loaded.

I'm the same with you on Bench, I have to bench well over 400 just to get on the list, and that's not likely any time soon.  As well, there's a lot of guys that get to the Masters, and just become "Bench Only".  Which means I'll never catch them.

Great Goals, Kel.  Always nice to keep striving forward and working there.  I work through alot and still have my goals.  One of which is buying Flex a Round after I beat him at a Meet....
