Kel,
Sorry to hear about your mom, hopefully she improves and life eases up for you.

Sabrina has had to back down to Bench only, due to her injury.  She has surgery scheduled for November 2nd.

John,
Absolutely.  We're still planning on it, and Sabrina is bringing a pretty good Bench to the Meet.  She pushed 225 a few weeks back, and depending on leg pain, she is likely aiming for a 245 or so.

We'll be there!

Damn!  If you're only going to bring one lift to a meet, that's the way to do it!!!

Indeed.  She's been quite happy with the progress that her Bench has been making.  She even squatted today. 185x4 for 2 sets.  Her knee surgery is scheduled for November 2nd, and then hopefully she'll be rehabbed in time for May 2018.

Just wanted to follow this up a bit. 

Sabrina had a Great day.  and she shows me new reasons to fall more in love with her each day.

She opened with 225, and missed it.  Back spasm, just as she pushed it up.  I went to the announcer and said she'd retake it.  Sabrina said "Hell, No, I'm going up. Gave the announcer 235. 

She took 235, and it was a smoke show.  Easily nailed it.  She was a bit quick on the Rack command, but honestly, the music was so damn loud, you couldn't hear the commands anyways.  I was yelling this to the head judge, and he couldn't hear me over the music. 

Sabrina called for 245, and nailed it.  Almost bobbled, but hit it smooth.  She was quite happy with how she did, hitting exactly what she wanted.

The Meet itself, had some impressive lifters.  Raw (Belt & Wraps), 181 lady squatted 600lbs.  A 132 Multi-ply girl, went 580/395/520.  A handful of other women all pulling over 400lbs. 

There was some sketchiness, that I won't go into, but it really left me scratching my head.  Overall, Rheta ran a good Meet, and Sabrina and the other women were really excited.  It ran long, and we left early, I think it finished somewhere around 7pm.

No, they were all pretty good. A Few slipped by, like every other Meet, but the judging was on par with any RPS Meet.

OK, so stop beating around the bush and say already.  PM if necessary.
