Awesome. Maybe you can give us the scoop on some clean hotels in the area.

No problem. Since we have an airport in Moline, there are plenty. Most are decent, and good prices. There are also a few across the river (in Iowa) which are good.

Wow and only $20 memebership fee and $10 entry for single event. Hmm may have to consider doing a raw bench at this meet. Plus its not that far away. Dieting or not I am sure I can hit a 500# raw bench for fun. Why not give it a shot, unless my diet has mweak but I doubt it especially since i am training heavy as heck still for rep work. Heck a single rep could be an easy day off right now. Whose all gonna be there theres rep this board there as well .

Hope you decide to join in the fun. I had never heard of this federation before but their site looks legit and well organized.

Me and Gaspers are dieting too, and doing this more for an experience and to get our first meet under our belts.

If any MAB member is in the KC area, or has plans to be in the area in the near future (for a MAB meet or what have you), I can hook a brotha/Sista up with a clean and cost-effective room, as the GM/SM of a Triple A property there. Just PM me, and I will do what I can for you.

I'm excited to see how this goes down. Unfortunately too far for me but I'll be with you in spirit.

I'm seriously looking at this. I'd sure like to get my BP up to respectability before a meet though. Pencil me in.

It would be fun spending the day with you and the MAB crew, checking one of the Bucket List. Not going to pressure you, but it would be an honor to lift side by side with you.
