Awesome. My favorite venue! No euro? And I just got rid of my aluminum pinch device!

Rob must mean a metric half. I think @Andrew P will find its more like a Yankee quarter. 

I don't want to miss this one. Would be nice to visit Ottawa in the summer for a change!

I have retired as lineal Masters champ.  Who will take the title this year?  Gus?  Or will someone be travelling to the great white north to challenge him?

Until they beat you, anyone that wins is a “paper champ”... 🧻

Not how it works Joe. You want to call Luke Raymond "paper champ" since he won entire overall NAGS title despite Tanner, Jedd, Adam and Aaron not competing? I didn't think so. Steve Millard shows up he is kicking ass and that is facts.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Mike. I'm nothing special, but if I'm able to train hard and stay healthy I can on occasion pull something special on the platform. At least as far as oldsters are concerned.

The real question is how I would hang in for what promises to be a marathon competition.

Come on out of retirement Rindo. Come kick my a$$ if you think you can. We can have time outs if our hips start bothering us.

Besides the fact that You would beat me in my prime, I'm not going to be able to lift anything heavy with my right arm for a few months.  Torn tendon. I will live on as the lineal champ forever. Haha.

Besides, even without the elbow, I was 100% serious when I said,

Just because I gave you a shout out as one of the people I admire in my MM1 profile, so now there is nothing more left to achieve in life, I really didn't mean to take away your motivation.  I am sure there are some other milestones worth achieving.

LOL, heal up man, we'd like to see you at comps again.  51 or 52 is nothing.  I'm 50 and I'm just getting started.
