Yoon: yes, I'll try for that one although I'll just be back from 2 months in Germany where I may not be able to lift. So maybe I'll just keep score or something. Gary Valentine is the host for that meet.
My story of the day was yesterday when I was in Equinox midtown (one of the only gyms to have an O lifting platform and bumpers). I had rejoined solely to use their O lifting equipment. There I was banging the weights around when a very peeved looking manager type came down and said, "Is everything alright? We've had some calls from upstairs on the noise." I just said, "that's because these are Olympic bumpers, they're meant to be dropped." He frowned and moved on. I guess they were meant for show or something!
