No worries.  I'm sure they'll have some at my meet in May.  That meet is small so they don't bother with shirts for us.  They just let us pick out a free shirt from everyone elses leftovers.   >:(

I think these were made by the venue, maybe not.

Lulz at the sloppy seconds on meet shirts  ;D

Vermont.
Already eyeballed the RPS schedules in the area... quite a few fairly local.

I just need to bite the bullet.

LMAO.  Subtle Bando; very subtle.

Trev, I promise you if you just do it you will have a blast and regret not doing it sooner.

I kept waiting until I felt I was "strong enough" to compete and Alex finally shamed me into doing it and I made the rankings at my first meet.  My bench still sucks but I am hooked.

 I know the feeling of being shamed into it, lol. But the nail in the coffin was free food!

Fairhaven Fitness (Jamie) runs a great Meet, and I know a lot of the judges and lifters.  If you do an RPS meet, that's a great one to hit.

Of course, you could pick one, where you know the Meet director, he'll offer you overnight stay for free, knows the local area, and hooks the lifters up with all sorts of cool shit.

Just saying...

That was an epic thread.
