We are pleased to report that this years show was the usual successful contest.  The number of competitors was not as high as we would of liked but the winners were of as high caliber as any show ever held.  Three of the competitors were in shape at at bodyweights of over 210 lbs.  The audience in attendance (estimated to be at about 400) was impressed to say the least.  Surprise guest poser was IFBB pro Willie Stallings.  The judges were Pete Fancher, Dick Fudge, Bryan Abbott, Tony Curtis, Ed Beach. Master of Ceremonies, Walter Howell.

We extend our thanks to the Swamp restaurant for the post contest party & serving lunch to the judges & contest staff.

Special thanks to Corey Warren for providing the means to bring Willie Stallings to guest pose. 

We would like to thank the major sponsors D & A Nutrition, Europa, and American Nutrition of Jax
