Picking a first show.
OK,I was looking to do my first Comp last year but I had a few personal setbacks. Now I've had some good gains and I feel I will be completely ready by mid summer. I could probably do it sooner but I wanna do it right. I've been looking at the shows available in California and I saw a few that looked good. I wanna make sure I get in the right competition after all this damn work and would appreciate any suggestions anyone had. Last year I was gonna do the Boarder classic but like I said I was not ready. I might just wait and do that this year but there are many others being this is a great state for bodybuilding. Anyone have a good amateur competitions to recommend in So Cal? I just don't want my first show to be a disappointment.

I'm in the same situation as Ron except i'm in michigan. Only difference is i want to compete as a teen cuz i don't want to get spanked by the veterans. If anyone knows a good one around here in the summer, pm me.

Here is a great site for a complete 2003 contest schedule by state and organization. It is a drug-free calendar, however.
Hope this helps,
saboudian, I've got some links for US an Canadian schedules somewhere. I'll post them when I can find where I put them

I didn't check the schedule but i know this...
The Cal is a huge, very competitive show. Sort of like a mini-jr nationals
The LA Classic (I believe it is always a week before the USA's) is big as well because many guys are trying to qualify for nationals
The Border States is smaller than both and from what I hear, has a much larger range of physiques
Of course you never know who is going to show up, but IMO, these are very safe assumptions
