Sabrina got thr rosterr for the Meet.

12 competitors.

That's gonna be a short meet.
Indeed. Figured I'd let everyone know, in case plans need to change.  In all honesty, I know you're driving 4 hours each way, plus a hotel, for a Meet that will be over by noon, at the latest.  If you all decide to change your mind, about the trip, I fully understand.

Sabrina is really disappointed, as she was hoping that she'd see 30-50 lifters.  She's sorted her openers (or 90% certain).  380/220/380.  Seconds look like 410/240/400.  With a goal of 425/250/420 - 1095ish.  Those numbers may fluctuate depending on the day.

Rheta is disappointed as well, but she will still give it her all.

I think given the circumstances we're going to bail on this.

Best of luck to Sabrina.

I fully understand, which is why I brought it up. 

I'm a bit disappointed as well, because I know how hard Sabrina trained for this, and the sacrifices I made so she could get to the gym.  I skipped training days, so that she could get there. This was supposed to be a big Meet, with some big names, and Sabrina was excited to stand shoulder to shoulder with them.

She hasn't said much, but I know she's disappointed as well.  So much hard work, and time she put into this.

Very disappointing I am sure.

I hope to step on the platform with you in January.

Training has been a fucking roller-coaster for me lately. Lot of issues with my right hip.  Not sure if you know I had a condition as a kid and wore leg braces for 2 years.  They said I'd be walking with a cane by the time I hit 40. My signature lift is crap I haven't squatted more anything close to 5 plates in months.  So my next meet might be my last.  I hope not but my hip is fucked.

Well, this thread got depressing.  Damn.  :'(

I'm probably stuck here still trying to wrap up stuff with my mom's house anyway.  We are 100% ready for the new buyers to close, or were ready... and then their lawyer decided he wanted to have boundary line agreements with the neighbors over the fencing.  My mom placed her 5' wood fence inside her own property lines, so that's not the issue.  It's more about the lawyer wanting some kind of guarantee that the neighbors won't "claim" the unused space??? So the neighbors are, at this point, either inconvenienced or genuinely pissed, and I don't blame them, because they're being asked to sign stupid legal documents.  And people are sending me over like "can you drive over to your mom's house and talk to this person or that person about the paperwork?", but not giving me enough information to answer the questions adequately, which makes everyone upset, including me.

Anyway.  Shitty week for everyone then.  But best of luck to Sabrina!  Rheta will run a great meet, it's a shame it couldn't have been bigger though!

Sabrina smoked a 425lb sqaut.
Went 380, 410, 425. Whites across the board.

Also saw that Brad was center stage at his show.

Thanks all!
She did indeed have a great day.

And after the Meet, we went to Delmonicos, and she had a huge Steak, a few glasses of wine, and then slept for 3 hours as I drove home.
