......yeah that's right. This was my 9th show and 5th Nationals. So far I've racked up FOUR 2nds...A 1st at provincials...a couple 3rds...a 4th...and a 5th. All as a welterweight...hard to move up a class when workin' in the oilpatch, due to long hours and no days off. So I trained 5 months for the show.
A little frustrated...but I'm over it. Saw the rest of the show from third row center. It was UNREAL as usuall...got a ton of free supps and clothes. The trophy is an EXACT duplicate of the 2nd place I recieved in'03 in same building.
I had the chance to chat with the head judge Debbie Karpenko and check out the score sheets...9 judges...Gave me three 1sts....three 2nds....and three 3rds...high and low thrown out...which gave me 14 points and the winner ended up with 10 points. I had him in third or 4th. Gary Bartlett will be sendin' out pics hopefully soon.
Here's some I took sat morn and sat night and a couple 48 hous later...
Next Nationals are AUG 18/07 in Edmonton...A day before my birthday!!!
Still looking for sponsors, all offers are welcome.

Thanks for hangin' out...all constructive criticism is welcome.
....and REMEMBER: The only pure substance of your training; and the only faculty that produces mass and separation. Is your irrepressible lust to revel in a level of pain; unendurable by any other human being. When you are pumped to a rage that melts your skull, then you can go home!
