Hey! So I guess its that time… show recap! I’ve become pretty familiar with the whole peak week and have a pretty good comfortable routine. However Wednesday (show week) I read on the NPC Utah Facebook page that if you had won an Overall the prior year you were not eligible to compete in Utah until 2015. Uhhh….. WHAT?!? The show was in THREE days.

I have been prepping for months for a show that I am no longer eligible for? And when the crap did this rule happen? I was FURIOUS. So… I started searching for this “rule” and could not find anything on any website anywhere that said anything about a rule of any sort. I contacted my Chairman and he said that I could not compete in the Open class until 2015 because I won Overall in August of 2013, but I could compete in the Natural class and if I had any questions I could contact the NPC head office. Well… I did have questions. I wanted to understand why I wasn’t eligible. I’ve been competing for years and have never heard anything like this before. My chairman mentioned something about “trophy stacking”. They allow you to “crossover” into up to 3 classes if your a first time competitor. Novice, Natural, and open… and if your a first time competitor AND 35 you can do even MORE crossovers. SO… if you ask me that is trophy stacking. I compete locally maybe 2 shows a year. I compete in ONE class only. OPEN. If I happen to win an overall, YAY for me. BUT the chances of that are not likely. Most often there are girls who get up to 5 trophies in ONE show. It takes me an entire year or longer to get that amount of trophies. Trophy stacking??? Hmmm…

Vent over. Long story short (ened), I contacted to NPC head office. They told me this rule doesn’t exist. Jim Manion called my chairman, I competed in the Open class. And I took 2nd in the biggest show in Utah as of yet. My class had 20 girls. Here are a few pictures from the competition that my friend got for me :) Next competition will be Nationals. I realize that I have to put on a little more size for that show. I need to do some work, but I am SO ready for it. Oh and I have an amazing suit, which is also made by Bonnie Barber at Platinum Designs. She has done all of my recent suits. She is absolutely amazing in every way to work with. If you’re looking for someone to work with, I highly recommend her. You can find her on Facebook.
