I spoke with Gus very recently. EVERYONE that is going NEEDS TO BOOK THE HOTEL VIA THE 1-800 NUMBER TO THE PEPPERMILL AND MENTION THE WABDL EVENT! In a nutshell, Gus "promises" to supply a certain amount of rooms in order to get a workable rate for the ballroom, if he DOES NOT FILL THE QUOTA, HE HAS TO PAY THOUSANDS EXTRA! Keep in mind this does NOT come out of Gus's take home so to speak, in the end it really hurts ALL of us, the WABDL supporters. The group rates he has locked in are CHEAPER than the hotel rates the Peppermill has on the net, check for yourself. You may save a few bucks staying in a crappy hotel and walking to the venue, but like I stated above, it only hurts ALL of us in the end, and having competed in Reno several times, THE PEPPERMILL IS THE BEST VENUE IN RENO!!!!! The rooms are comparable to the Bellagio, and that is NO JOKE.
On a different note, I purchased the offical WABDL VERSION DL BAR by Mac Barbell, designed by BUZZSAW Gus himself, BEST DL BAR I HAVE EVER USED AND I HAVE USED THEM ALL!
Attention to TEAM FINLAND AND SWEDEN! How are you my friend??!!! Please bring your whole team again, you guys are great lifters and even better people, Tony Caprari, Rich Hawthorne and I will be representing THE USA (SECRET INSIDE WORD C3!) and look forward to competing against YOUR best.
The CAPELLO award is going to be the most sought after trophy of the entire show in my opinion, my question to Gus is there ONE award OR ONE FOR EACH OPEN FLIGHT?
OCTOBER IS COMING.....KEEP PUSHING AND PULLING, AND STAY HEALTHY
