I think if you find a smaller meet in Texas that you can attend, you should just go ahead and enter. A bigger meet, like the one in Vegas I was in, might be a little intimidating. I didn't find the smaller meet in Vernon intimidating at all. Usually at a first meet, if you tell them so, the judges will go a little easier on you. For example, in Vernon, I fluffed my rack command and they let it go. Stuff like that. There are many things at a meet you won't get a feel for if your just a spectator. Just 2 cents worth to think about.
Thanks Jim! I think those goals are sensible and achievable within 6 months if my training continues moving along as it has!
No way I would enter the PL world at a huge meet like the one in Vegas
Definitely will try to get my feet wet at a small and hopefully local meet
With all the experience on this site, there shouldn't be too much left to the imagination anyway
