2007 INBF Washington State
Natural Bodybuilding & Figure Championships
(Arlington, Washington - August 11, 2007)

My first INBF show to cover, promoters Kevin and Denise James are spearheading the interest and awareness of Natural training and competition in the Pacific Northwest. The INBF is the amateur affiliate of the WNBF Pro Association. Didn't really know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the calibre of athletes. In addition, guest performances by former and current NPC amateur competitors Katy Holmes and Sherry Boudreau (both competed and judging at INBF Natural events and are now WNBF Pros) added some familiarity along with Rose Hendricks and her sister Sue Romero's dance routine 'Move'. I highly recommend competing/attending this show in the future. The venue was superb and all athletes are tested via polygraph so for those who train that way and are looking for a guaranteed even playing field, this is a great option.

This was only a 'day trip' for me - the border crossing lineups both ways seemed to be as long as the drive itself, but definitely worth the trouble :) A competitor who stood out in terms of being photogenic with a very aesthetic physique was Jennifer, competing in both bodybuilding and figure.
