19 under the belt!, and it was a huge NPC Pacific Coast Championship 2016! May 14, 2016 brought some of the best physiques we have witnessed in many years of producing this annual Battle at the Beach. The Competitors came ready to rock the stage, and goal accomplished! 363 Competitor entries and a huge sold out crowd of their admirers increased the little beach town population for the weekend by approximately 22%!
It was R.K. Smith first Pacific Coast Fitness Expo, and it was a pretty good start, with plans to continue the Expo for 2017. There were many Vendors in a fun configuration in the Chinook Winds Convention Center, with a CrossFit Meet center room that was sponsored by R.K. Smith Productions and produced by the Carter’s of Power Valley CrossFit from Albany Oregon. Twelve CrossFit athletes were crowned champions of the first Beach Front Battle.
NPC Championship Masters of Ceremonies along with the R.K. Smith Event Expediting crew, and the always beautiful & efficient Trophy team kept things moving and expedited the 363 class entries wrapping the Finals by 10:30 PM. Not an easy feat as every single Competitor entered in the event is allowed stage time to present or to perform their individual routine in the Finals.
Nestucca Highschool Junior Morgan Kirkpatrick opened the Finals with the singing of the National Anthem before what was her largest audience. We were all very proud of her pretty voice filling the Chinook Winds showroom! Next we were very happy to feature Taylor Jade Peterson with an exhibition Fitness routine. She is quite a special young lady, only 13 years old! We are excited to see what her future in the industry will be. We expect to see great things ahead from Taylor Jade Peterson!
New LED stage lighting, spots and robotics made for a great atmosphere to showcase the outstanding physiques on stage, and set a festive mood throughout the showroom for spectators. We can’t praise our event crew enough for their hard work and the dedication they have. They are truly family to us. We also appreciate the hard working NPC Judges who put in a long day and evening. We are very grateful for our Head Judge Dominic Current who always does a stand up job not only with the athlete’s stage direction, assisting the judging panel, but also in assisting us in every way, including breaking down! It takes two days of very challenging hard work to set this type of event up, and our motivated crew just 60 minutes to break down!
Sincere thanks to all involved in the 2016 Pacific Coast Championship & Fitness Expo, NPC Competitors on stage, off stage or fans in the audience, those in the Convention Center manning their Vendor booths, those judging & assisting the Carter's with their first Functional Fitness Contest and the CrossFit Athletes competing. It was a year to remember because of all of you!
