If you're not earning your living at it, it's a hobby and should be kept in perspective as such.  Not questioning Alex's dedication or talent at all, just IMHO.

Oh, I didn't realize.  Well, that's next level.  Obey the tattoos.

Meet details says it's a "Beginner/Novice" meet. So I assumed Me and Bando are excluded.

I'm seriously considering November, and it seems to be local enough for many of us...

There's spots for advanced I guess, but won't count for records.

Found out the guy who bailed on spotting last year (making me have to spot/load & compete) wants to go, I'm not giving that assbag a ride, he can go chit in his hat.

July is much too early for me.  I'm still working on recovery.  If we'd all like to assemble and compete there in July, I'd be happy to make the trip, and even wrap knees if needed, but there's no way I could compete.

I'm prepping someone for the May 18th meet now. Looks like the gym will just be opened in time. July looks to have some big names competing so it will be a good time. Would be cool to see you guys hoist some weights in Rhetas new place once. From the look of it it will be a nice set up (parking will suck though).

Not going. Feel bad as it's a girl from my club's 1st meet and she's a grinder with a Barbell.

She is.  In fact, she just registered two days ago.  :)  I'm pretty certain that I'll be doing her Meet in November.

I'm e freinds with a 148 lb guy looking to pull 600 at his 1st meet this year. Trying to steer him to a meet I will be at and this would be about the time he'll be ready.
