2016 Elite Tan NPC Southern Colorado & Armed Forces Championships

“Still can’t get over how much fun I had!”  Maddie Maz, May 2015
“I want to thank to everyone that helped make the Southern such a great experience. As it was my first show, I was quite nervous and intimidated going in. However, everyone, from Jeff Taylor to the judges to the stage managers and expediters to my fellow competitors, was helpful, friendly, and professional. It was an absolutely fantastic experience, and I can’t wait to step on stage again in the future.”  Matt Reilly, May 2014
