Wow, what a show!

325 Competitors make this the biggest NPC event ever for Ron and Sue Smith and in the state of Oregon.  It was a record breaker both in attendance and in speed, keeping the show fast, furious and exciting!  Extra special IFBB Pro Joe DeRoussie was the guest poser!. Master of Ceremonies, Kim Farrison kept the show moving and entertaining!  Awards were presented for the 2013 7 Feathers Trainers,

Ron and Sue Smith also made a special announcment for the Genevieve Moreno Memorial Sponsorship.  A minimum of $500 is being made in the memory of Genevieve to the YMCA in her town of Eugene by Ron and Sue Smith.  The award will sponsor summer swimming lessons each summer for 10 children.  Each $50 raised will allow a child to participate in Summer Swimming Lessons.  Without this sponsorship, these kids would not be able to partake in lessons.  Julie Grossman, Associate Executive Director of the Eugene Family YMCA, Eugene, talked more about the talked more about the importance of the Sponsorship and encouraged everyone to check out the vendor table for more information.

Guest Posing Duties were performed by new 2013 IFBB Pro, Joe Deorusie.  He is an awesome man and wowed the crowd with his awesome size and symmetry!  He is also a very nice guy in person and he is a great ambassador for the sport of bodybuilding.

This show gets better every year, from the first year I covered it in 2004, there were maybe roughly 100 competitors, in bodybuilding and Figure, to now, with almost three times the competitors in Bikini, Bodybuilding, Physique, Fitness and Figure.  This has been a great journey, the 7 Feathers show, and it shows no sign of slowing down.  Congrats to Ron and Sue, two of the most amazing promoters in the business!
