ok, so I've landed a few sponsors, and talked with a few more.

Here's the Current List:

Confirmed Sponsors:
Cape Cod Nutrition Center (www.capecodnutrition.com) - goodie bag for each lifter
RSP Nutrition (rspnutrition.com) - Strength Stack Supplements & T-shirt
POWER Magazine (www.thepowermagazine.com) - Year subscription for Best Female and Best Male lifter
LiftingLarge.com - Prize Package for Best DL/bodyweight or Best Bench/Bodyweight

Possible Sponsors:
Lorenzo's Italian Restaurant (www.lorenzos.net) - Discount Meal after weigh-in for Lifters
Elite FTS (www.elitefts.net) - Prize package for Best Bench Press by Bodyweight.
Liquid Grip (www.liquigrip.com) - additional goody item for lifters

Sponsors that opted out:
Rogue Fitness
Cardillo Weight belts.

I'm asking you guys, if there are any ideas that you might have that you'd like to see as a prize for the lifters.

Cardillo passed on it.

Today I secured LiftingLarge.com as a sponsor. Prize packages for Best DL/Bodyweight and Best Bench/Bodyweight.

So, these guys are making weight belts for celebrities and they can't buck up for at least a $50 gift certificate, which would more than likely give them extra business since nobody would spend just $50. Or am I missing something?

That's still a very good list of sponsors.  Much more than the two meets I've been to.

Their reason for not doing it was "We feel the event it too far from our retail location."

What's even more irritating, I'm good friends with two athletes they sponsor. I've thought of telling my friends about it.

Yes, you are correct.
The friends that matter, and might have spent money there. Now, I'd say Lifting Large has a better chance of seeing your money.

they have a better chance, but getting money out of Bando's wallet is like finding Al Capone's hidden vault, good luck with that  ;D

Yea, because brick and mortar stores are the wave of the future.  :crazy:

Sounds more like they are afraid of losing a buck. Well, they just did.

LIftinglarge shipped out the Prize package today.  I'll post pics when it arrives.

Still pissed about Cardillo.  Oh, well.  I'll keep looking for Sponsors to sweeten the Pot.
