Thre 2006 NPA  Tri-Cities "Regional"set an all time record of having the lowest turn out of having the smalles turn-out that I’ve seen in 20 years. However, in keeping with the tradition of the Natural Physique Association the show did go on. Our motto is:  it doesn’t matter whether 10 athletes or 100, the show must and will go on. Many of the spectators had their first experience viewing a bodybuilding fitness/figure show. I can truly say judging from the feedback that we received the contest was truly enjoyed. Fifteen years of experience being an entertainer helps one put a successful program together. This is especially true when you have a diversity of talent coming from different geographical areas and having the essential support to make things happen. I will go on record and say that our personnel that we are fortunate to have are second to none.   The show started with the men novice division which presented a lightweight class (under 175) and over (175). Lightweight John Ward from Baltimore, Maryland bested Jerry Maitland of Jetersville, Virginia. Ward looked very good for this time of year and when interviewed said, “he felt ready for this win.” Maitland who did an earlier NPA show made improvements and appears to have found a formula to keep things going in the off season. Heavyweight contestant Timothy Sinz a fire fighter from Nottingham, Maryland bought an awesome package this year. Sinz did this show last year.  He was big but smooth and came up short. His conditioning this time was superb and he not only won the class but went onto win the Overall Novice division title against Ward. The figure competition came on next with their round one which is the bikini round. Two athletes Kelly Pettaway from Petersburg, Virginia vied against returning contestant from last year Lori Rawleigh of Fredericksburg, Virginia. Rawleigh was eager for this competition because last time she made an amateur mistake with her coloring and would not repeat any errors made last year.  She was prepared and even though Pettaway made things interesting by the time round 2 the one piece came about, Rawleigh was sporting the look of confidence. When they completed their performance Rawleigh earned a unanimous decision in the eyes of the judges. In the men masters (50+) Ben Randazzo who is an exceptional good looking athlete from Brick, New Jersey clearly dominated Mechanicsville Virginian, Davis Ainsley.  Randazzo only flaw is a little fat deposit in his core region. He’s got everything else and one of the most complete natural athletes I’ve seen in thirty years.  In the (40-49) division crossover from the novice, John Ward got a unanimous win over Montpelier, Virginian Darryl Thomas. Thomas is a NPA veteran who is still trying to get his first overall win in the NPA. In the (35-39) Jerry Maitland would get his proud uncontested win. Once the three champions came together for the title of Masters Tri-Cities, Ben Randazzo with his complete package earned a close one point decision over 2nd place Ward.   The women masters and women open were represented by one female contestant. Deserving a big round of applause from Richmond, Virginia congratulations go out to Melissa Ligh. Melissa lost over 300lbs at one point in her life. She looks amazingly good in spite of what she has gone through. I think she should publish a book. If there was ever an example of a trend setter, she’s it.  Melissa walked away with five awards and a couple of titles, one being the Ms. 2006 Tri-Cities.

In the men open the lightweight class (under 165) ended up being the largest class.  Fifth place was awarded to Davis Ainsley, 4th place Jerry Maitland, 3rd place John Ward, 2nd place Ben Randazzo, and the winner of the class was Richmond’s Donnie Ladd. Ladd looked good and probably could use a little more coloring to bring the best out of his great physique. He was also the youngest athlete in the show at 28.

Darryl Thomas was the lone middleweight and Timothy Sinz was the lone heavyweight. When Ladd, Thomas and Sinz went at it for the overall title, Ladd appeared to steal the show. However, I always said and will continue to say that, “the little man can win and be the champion on any given day – assuming the big man is not right, on the other hand when the big man is right, the contest is over!” When all the smoke cleared, 222 lbs Timothy Sinz, one of the largest men ever to compete in the NPA ranks earned the title of; Mr. 2006 Tri-Cities. The best poser award went to Ben Randazzo. We’d like to thank Doug Hailey our number one pro male athlete. He did a marvelous job as a guest poser.  Doug is clearly one of the best posers in all of bodybuilding. We are fortunate to have him represent the NPA.  We‘d also like to thank all the fans, friends and families of the athletes to include our officials. Head Judge, Narva J. Daniels, Stephan Kitchen, Mary Anna George, Daniel Wright, Sherrie Broome’, Valerie Foster, YeSok, Rochelle, and Nikita Silas, Minnie Nolan, Michael Stewart, JW Hicks, Kerry Barnard, Toni Johnson, and Troy Crawley all made it happen. We also thank Robert Thomas the official NPA photographer and Slade Video official NPA videographer. Tom / Dawn of Sportzfit, Ms. Betty Ware, Hopewell High School and Joe the custodian all deserve special thanks. Until next year, train hard for this is the last show of the year and an excellent way to end the year. / Harry E. Silas
