Anyone in the Greensboro area able to supply me with any info regarding a body-building contest this weekend, April 18-20?

My Father plans to drive up from the coast tomorrow morning so he can see his trainer at the gym he likes, compete in a body-building contest? I think he said the 'show' is Saturday evening.

I am sure I will need to drive him from Raleigh to Greensboro tomorrow so he can make the contest/show, so any info would be greatly appreciated, ie. driving time to allow, how easy it will be to find this place, etc.

Thanks much!

Gold's Gym is sponsoring the NC Bodybuilding Contest at the Carolina Theatre this evening. Tickets are $25.

This appeals to me about as much as watching the fire ants in the yard build a mound.

I hope you have fun. NC has several contest through the year. I would be interesting in going but I think I would get bored fast (im not into watch beauty contests) and I think my partner might get jealous.

I hope you have a good time

Thanks for the response, SunnyKayak.

I found the competition at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Greensboro. It wasn't bad, but I think being with my silly sister, who brought our Dad up from the Coast, saved me from being bored.

I can appreciate what these people do, and the dedication, just like I can appreciate the effort anyone puts into a hobby, interest, pastime, etc., but it doesn't necessarily appeal to me. Still, Dad was happy to see his own trainer compete, and she did well -- she won her level of competition, and took second overall in her particular division. She's also a nice girl, and I am glad she looks out for my Dad. She has him working-out 2-3 times a week, and eating healthy.

Great. Just great. My Dad told his trainer -- who he came up to see in the contest in Greensboro -- that he wanted to mix-up his routine, maybe buff-up a little. He wants to compete in the over 70 group. He's already asked my sister about taking him to another show in Charleston, SC, in the coming weeks.

We have created a m-o-n-s-t-e-r, catering to his whims. We'll be traveling all over with this 78-year-old man who wants to sport his stuff in a speedo.
