you mean all this happened in 1 contest, doesn't make sense

the only one i'm not sure about was Jason.  but pretty sure it was his last amateur competition.  for sure spinello and payette turned pro there.

No....don't remember that name. After Maile I remember Spinello, Brisbois, Nimrod King, Henderson Thorne and then a run of Champs out of Quebec....

for some reason quebec competitors seemed to get an unfair advantage in the 90's.  I competed in the 1991 Canadians.  Joe Spinello from quebec won the lightheavy and got his pro card. michelle payette from quebec won the heavys and got his pro card.  Jason Marcovicci from quebec got second in the lightheavy and got his pro card. Brian Joseph from British Columbia won the middleweight and overall, beating the above quebec athletes and did not get his pro card. 

the magazines were proclaiming that payette would win the overalls for about ten months before the show.

Yeah, I was thinking about you the other day and if you competed when Andre Maile broke Reid Schindle's run of titles.

Doesn't seem that long ago....

I was working out back then, but not yet competing.  hell, I was working out before Franco, Zane, Bannout, Dickerson and Haney won the Olympia. there had only been three mr. Olympia's when I began lifting. Shocked

Ben Weider once stated he felt Reid had better genetics than Arnold; too bad he was a bit of a lazy fuck.

do you remember Mark Gagne?  he won the Canadians a few times in the 80's.   5' 9 245lbs.   HUGE Shocked Shocked  got in a real bad car wreck and was messed up real bad.  I see him occasionally, nice guy.

Wonder how that shirt would look on Phil...

he would have to keep his arms straight out to the sides at all time to avoid falling through the neck hole.

 or some bikini bite to keep it in place

Memory says Northern Ontario, relocated down to Southern Ontario (Kitchener-Waterloo area?).

Your recall is pretty good......for an old guy.    Grin

I remember things from the 90's more clearly than things from last week.   true story.

No worries there, Hazbin. Your physique was far superior to what I had when I won the title.

The history of the Mr Canada is interesting. In the early days the Weider brothers promoted the contest via their magazines. Lots of French Canadians won the title

and were featured on the covers of Muscle Builder and Your Physique magazines. Leo Robert and the Brunet twins come to mind.

When Joe moved to New Jersey and then California he more or less stopped using Canadians much in his magazines. The exception is probably Paul Dillet. Paul

never won the Mr Canada title, either. There are plenty of big guys back east, especially in Toronto and Montreal. I was lucky in 1970 when only one competitor

arrived from the eastern provinces. I don't think anyone from Alberta entered that I can recall. We had a veteran from Manitoba compete.

Nowadays things have changed and Alberta produces some top guys. It is hard to win the provincial overall title there.

How is your gym going? I will visit you the next time I am in Calgary. Maybe we can put on a seminar or something. Should be fun.


ya, I still remember the old 2875 bates rd. montreal quebec.   lol.

my gym is still here, 22 years later.  the monthly dues memberships really changed the viability of the gym business. it turns every member into a asset rather than a liability.

it would be great to meet you.  let me know if you are ever out my way.

Haz....you ever compete against Frank Tomczak?

I kinda remember that name?   91 Canadians maybe?   where is he from?
58  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Blue Stars - for Competitors Only on: July 01, 2014, 08:42:58 PM
I am against things like different stars on discussion forums. The exception being to identify moderators and owners. Whenever status is something you earn you end up with problems.

The Blue Stars issue won't go away. Known competitors don't get them. Let us discuss Hazbin. Great guy, huge physique and a gym owner in Calgary. I campaigned for his blue stars

several times in the last few years to no avail. I also campaigned for Goodrum to get his stars. It took years before he got them. He deserved them because he had the nerve to get

up on stage and compete several times. Personalities and politics should have nothing to do with competition stars. Now Goodrum gloats about them and even Hazbin is grateful he finally has them.

I would like to hear why Booty doesn't have her Blue Stars. It must be a political decision because she obviously competed and won titles.




thanx Vince.   

I am one of the few here that truly respect your Mr. Canada win.   something that I never came close to in 5 attempts spanning 17 years.

66  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Phil Heath - Would he have been first or second at the 1999 Olympia? on: June 22, 2014, 10:19:20 AM
here's Dex vs. heath and Dex vs. Ronnie. 
67  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Would HEATH survive in this lineup? on: June 22, 2014, 09:00:48 AM
with that argument you might as well say  Jay placed 15th and him and Phil are close  Wink

OTH, hopefully you know  that i'm aware that bodybuilding is more than just taking up space.   but I truly believe Phil and Dex are more or less equal physique wise, and BOTH would look small in this lineup.
68  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Would HEATH survive in this lineup? on: June 22, 2014, 05:46:11 AM
phil and dexter jackson are the same size.  dexter got 9th
69  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: ESFitness thread- TARGET UPDATE: Vince Basile.... on: June 18, 2014, 04:26:36 PM
Ive never once seen you ask for stars. Besides, we all know you're a REAL competitor.

lol.  thank you
70  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: ESFitness thread- TARGET UPDATE: Vince Basile.... on: June 18, 2014, 03:12:53 PM
Ron will NEVER give him his stars, it's too much fun for Ron to watch him repeatedly meltdown over it.

I feel like he would have gotten them long ago if he wasn't such a whiny bitch.

hey hey,   does that make me a whiny bitch?? Cheesy
