NPC Elite Tan Southern Colorado & Armed Forces Championships

“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

This Year’s Event is a Fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project.  A percentage of the proceeds from this show will be donated to the WWP. Find out how you can get involved!

  1. Bodybuilder competitor here, couple questions:
    1. Entry Fees states, “BODYBUILDERS & WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE COMPETITORS MUST ENTER BY TUESDAY,” Tuesday of what, exactly? Tuesday prior to the event – May 5th? Tuesday April 21st? April 28th? Tuesday May 12th?
    2. It goes on to say, “*. $85 per class if paid online by May 1st, 2015.” I get paid on May 1st to be able to afford the competition, does it mean I have exactly until 11:59 PM of that day to pay the $85 per class entry fee?
