I'm still 1/2 crippled from the last one.

Felt something not good in my left hip on my squat fail, ran on adrenaline and now my right hip is a mess whilst the left side is fine  :S

Since I'm doing one in May, it won't be enough time to prep for another one.  I am looking at the Veterans Classic in Florida in November.  Sabrina is doing Full Power in October, so I'm trying to find one shortly after that, which doesn't put me too late in the year. 

if I do November, that puts me on target for Spring Supremacy 2019, stepping on the Platform with Flex.

unless he wants to fly to Florida in November.....

If Lisa and I are the only ones lifting (and Lisa is even iffy right now she hurt her back) then I might skip this and go lift with Alex in Florida in November.

Is it a full power meet?
Title: Re: NY States Rochester Aug 4th; who's in?
Post by: AlexanderOmand on May 16, 2018, 06:27:10 PM
it is Full Power.

and Florida in November is a nice place, compared to Canada (weather Wise).

We've got a little airport about 70 minutes away that does $49 flights to Orlando, alas, Port St. Lucie is 2 hours away from Orlando

What are flights from your area? Gotta be 4-500. Pretty reasonable from here.

4-500?  Not likely.  Flights to NJ were $800 each, which is why I'm not going to the rumble.

It's roughly $150 round trip from Boston to Palm Beach, then it's rent a car to drive up to PSL.  Once I figure in 4 people, the price jumps a bit.

Add in a hotel for 3 nights, and it's looking like $1500 to compete in Florida.

I'll confer with the Missus, and see.  Otherwise, we're looking at Long Island (Hofstra) or Pennsylvania.

Looks like flights to Florida will be the same-ish $700-900 each depending on options.

Also need to rethink doing anything in November.  We're going live November 5th with JDE and I am in charge of the project.  Would not be smart to plan to be out of the country shortly thereafter...

So maybe I should just do Rochester and call that my 2018 competition roster.

Jim - if flights are cheaper flying out of Syracuse you are more than welcome to park your car at my house and I'll take/pick you up at the airport.

Just an option.

My sister has a nice house about 15 minutes from PSL i'm sure she wouldn't mind us crashing there for a night or 2, just sayin..options.  I also have a 4 bed house with just me, but I'm 2 hours from PSL.....I'll be staying at my sisters, lol.

I'm still available as a cheerleader.  Come on people, I look adorable with pom poms.

Actually, I look scary with pom poms.  I promise not to bring them.

Another reason, I'm looking to the Florida Meet, is that it's not a Gene and Ame Meet.  I go in, I lift, I leave.  I don't have to spot/load/judge/pack or anything.  Just be a regular lifter.

did some checking on a car, not that bad. 
As well, Hotels shouldn't be a killer either.

just have to pass this through the Missus and it's starting to look viable.

Plus, GNF, Flex , Miss Lisa, my Valkyrie, and myself all on the platform.  Hmmm....

This would be awesome and timing would work great to line up after my meet next weekend.
