Park City, Utah

Prelims started with 80 guys and 41 girls from all over the world for the Park City, Utah stop of Grand Prix. This was actually the most girls I have seen turn out for a contest which is nice to see the sport is growing to the point that we have people coming all the way from as far as Russia and Venezuela.
