    ***The Official 2005 Arnold Classic/WBB Meet Thread***

    Yeah, ok. Rather than replying to the thousands of PMs that I've received expressing interest, I thought I'd set this thread up, so that others can view the discussions and get an idea of logistics and whatever other pricing might be involved.

    Currently this is what I know, it's March 4th, 5th, and 6th, in Columbus, Ohio. It's being held in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium.

    VIP Tickets are "bend me over and do my dry" expensive, so that is pretty much out.

    Day passes are $10 each, and you will have access to pretty much everything except the actual show and some other perks? Anyway, you can wander, meet the pros I'm guessing, see the pre-judging, watch tons of other sports, like powerlifting, strongman, martial arts, artistic ****ing dance. If it was autistic dance I might think about it.

    Sites you can visit for a full list are:

    http://www.arnoldclassic.com
    http://www.arnoldexpo.com

    Hotels we are looking into, but I'm sure we can pack you homos in tight, and you can spoon your way to cheaper hotel rates by splitting it 4 or more ways. I have gotten a rough idea that rates will run around $75 a night for something in the immediate area. I'm sure there are roach motels that can be had for less, or if some prefer to stay a little further away. I'll post more details when available. But $75 divided by 3 or 4 persons isn't much.

    From what I hear you will get TONS of free **** at the expo, supps, etc.

    Anyway, I won't list those who've contacted me via PM as I'll let them chime in or not here. But if you wish to come, let us know here and maybe either PM me your email address, or list it here and we'll get it sorted out.

    If you would like to go, but have no transport, you can still pipe up, and let us know where you live, and if you are on someone's route that is driving maybe you can be picked up.

    That's all for now.

    I've never been either, and most here that I see so far haven't been as well. But I know some have that will eventually pipe up. Until then, all I can say is checkout the links I posted and see what events there are. Seems like they cater to every type of lifting crowd there can be, and many sports as well. They even have archery!

    Shouldn't be a problem. I'm gonna give it one more week, then try to organize how many rooms we'll need, and see if we can coordinate a mass booking so we can have a nice big floor party and **** the place up.

    Oh, also senior Marko, aka the doc will be attending as well. Careful, I still consider him the horniest man alive, and once he's four or five pints in I start getting nervous. Be warned! :evillaugh

    It's 13.5 hours from where I am, so it's pretty much out the window. I kind of wish I had gone to the WBB meet in Bangor, but I was still pretty new to the site.

    Next time.

    Pete, it looks like the expo tickets will not get you in to see the evening Bodybuilding events on Saturday night. The pre-judging I think is on the Friday Night. Looks like we'll need to buy extra tickets and I hope it's not the vip ones!

    Yeah, the expo tickets will get you into all of the interesting events (powerlifting, strongman, etc), but not that foo-foo bodybuilding crap.




    At most shows the pre-judging tickets are seperate and a lot cheaper than the night show tickets.
