    *** Official Wbb Arnold Classic 2006 Meet ***

    Ok folks, just as the title says, this is the official thread organizing this 2nd annual event for Wannabebig.

    Last year was an overwhelming success, and this year is shaping up to be even bigger.

    First weekend in March, in Columbus, Ohio.

    I believe we had over 20 people last year, and I think we can easily beat that number this year.

    We will add details as we move along, but so far we have a large block of hotel rooms booked. The hotel will be the Comfort Inn, and I believe the pricing is between $50 and $60 a night. The hotel will be a short distance from the convention centre, I think about a 10-12 minute drive, so cheap cab rate with 3 or 4 to a cab, but we should have plenty of vehicles as well.

    Most will show up either thursday or friday, and depart sunday. So most will be paying for two nights, but some will arrive early and pay for 3.

    We will arrange rooms as people sign up, so nobody will have to pay their room entirely on their own, either splitting with one, two or possibly three others if budgets are tight.

    The expo is huge and probably takes two full days to wander through. It costs $10 to get in, and then you'll be subjected to thousands of free samples, hot hard-bodied women, and huge geared up guys. Lots to see, with powerlifting comps, womens and mens bodybuilding comps, martial arts, you name it.

    We'll be feasting, hotel room drinking, bar drinking, drinking drinking, and we'll also have a big group workout as we did the last year.

    So the more people that come, the better, as it was a great trip last year.

    So this is where you may voice your thoughts on whether or not you are interested. We'll put together a list of who's going soon enough, but I'm too lazy to type it out right now. I think we already have about 15 confirmed, and from what I understand, Dan and Chris might also be holding a booth at the expo for AtLarge Nutrition.

    There is also a 100% chance of seeing Will aka Homeyield's ass, which is the brightest and most brilliantly white naturally occuring phenomenon known to man.

    Just so folks don't get confused, Connor is speaking of the actual main bodybuilding show. Tickets are scarce, and usually $250+. Last year I think 4 or 5 went to it, so if any decide to go they probably won't be alone.

    Actually I think night show tixs were $50-100. The VIP package was $250, and the consensous was it wasn't worth it.

    Just be aware that the cab trips to and from the airport are like mondo expensive.

    For instance, last year, the hotel was $50 (not including tip); not sure how much it will be this year.

    Carpooling will be a must.

    Not to mention I have 4 months to get a cell phone. That's a different story though.

    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about

    Oh yes, if the free samples were like last year, you could wander around the expo floor and fill up on brownies and Muscle Milk.

    Remember, it's all about "teh pump".

    Yeah, but obviously not all cities with 800,000 people necessarily have an international airport, now do they?

    Shane, yes you can fly into Columbus since we usually clear customs on Canada so international or not it's no problem for us Canadians.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Maki et al -- I didn't reserve an airline ticket until early January or so earlier this year, and got in for under $300 round trip, from/to LGA (New York).

    That was on travelocity.com. Of course, you're flying from Vancouver so it's probably more.

    Might be best to lock in your fares now while you still can.
