Hayward was again the location of this show, Chabot College has become very familiar for anyone who has been in the SF Bay area and competed or attended NPC shows. Parking outside of the college is free and not too far from venue.

Maria Harvey

Masters Figure A was for Maria Harvey who has amazing abs and looks very good overall, Christy Dalton took the tall class. But it was Maria who took the overall. In over 45+ Barbara Mencer took the whole class with ease, Barbara can do masters nationals and probably get her pro card.
