Hey Gary,
Thanks for putting together a great meet! And after all that, you threw up some pretty damn heavy weight at the end of the day.

I had a lot of fun lifting as well as meeting the other athletes. Good times.

Oh yeah, on a side note: there were actually a number of Performance Menu members and lurkers participating in the comp....I think 6 or 7 total.

Still trying to get the hang of my new camera, so there were a lot of blurry shots. Here's what I uploaded so far.
