Many thanks to Bob Bonham and Strong and Shapely gym for hosting this event. Special thanks goes to Vinny Galanti for setting it up. We had the largest turnout ever and speaking of large, if you were there you saw how large Evan looks right now.

The seminar (and food) that we had after was a great experience. It's an awesome opportunity to get to pick the brains of the champions like Vinny, Evan BigAl and BigAnt. A great day indeed and I am fired up for my own journey. Here are all the pics that I took, I know there are others so post them in this thread:

I had a blast yesterday everyone. It was good to see the old faces and meet some new ones. Evan was looking large, my boy G, Wides, and Tek were putting up some serious numbers on bench, Big Ant, Joey D, and Vinny were blasting legs, my boy Joey, Punisher, and myself were slamming shoulders, and NG was taking the photos and getting his arm swell on. D Im glad you had fun and can go back home with memories to last you a life time. Pizzalamp its about time I met u face to face bro, keep holding it down and training hard. To everyone else, thanx for coming out and making this an ABC for the ages. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

It was a blast and an honor to be around so many great and dedicated athletes... Ox at 314 and Big Al at 3 bills + with the Delaware freaks, Big Ant and Joey D reppin Philly, Vinny G just being Vinny G, my boys big Enforcer, Punisher, BazookaJoe, Chuck, Travis... Pizza and Jer from CT, Hoomgar always in the house and Deanna making a big haul to get there... Training with Wides and Tek who were simply built to move big weight--I could never get weak training around cats like them. My dawg NG makes the whole thing go 'round and his enthusiasm alone makes me proud to be involved. The ABCs are official and they are here to stay. I feel very lucky to be a part of it. Thank you to you all. Peace, G

Ox is at 314?? damn, I thought he looked around 280 or 290 but 314 is huge. When is Ox planning on competing again?

it was a real good time and good seeing everyone again before the holidays. As usual training with G and Wides leaves me sore for days. We really established a brotherhood with the ABC's especially in Jersey where it all started. Stay safe and healthy everyone

He was all of 300 + and looking LARGE. He is making his pro debut at the NY Pro in May.

Man what a day. Hoaky crap have I ever gotten fat! Not too crazy about how I look in those pics. Gotta dial it in a bit man.

Way to many freaks in the house that day. No way you could catch up with them all.

You will have to go as big and bad too D LOL! The Cage isn't in the budget this year. Feels like a kid missing Christmas to me but I can't make it :(

We most likely won't have one every month in New Jersey but there is a long island event on Jan. 4th and a CT event on Jan. 10th both of which are kind of local.

We do have plans for more NJ events but they will be at other gyms although I am sure we will rotate back to Strong & Shapely again.

We are kicking around the idea of hitting the Muscle Mill which is in Milltown and we need to get to Apollon gym in Edison also. Those will be hit up early 2009.

Both great gyms and definitely ABC worthy... We've gotta get back down to South Jerz as well. Atilis in Wildwood is no joke and you know Brigantine/AC is a must post-Arnold. Peace, G
