“First off I would like to thank you for running such a great event!  You and your team did a fantastic job.  The people in the pump up room and back stage were fantastic!  They kept things running SO smooth, it was great!” Kevin Walton, April ’16

“I’ve known Jeff Taylor now for 20 years and I can tell you two things for certain; the man doesn’t age and he’s as nice as he is real. I believe this was our 9th or 10th Northern Colorado and all of them have been a success. Colorado is lucky to have this NPC chairman.” Chris Gatchis, CEO/Founder Axis Labs
