NPC Battle on the Bluff 2009 Results

Here are the results of the 2009 NPC Battle on the Bluff Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Competition held Saturday June 27, 2009 at Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Tunica, MS. Kudos to Chris Caudy for hosting a great event that presented fantastic physiques from all over the region. Chris is a bodybuilding champion, trainer and promoter and has a private studio called Next Level Training in the Memphis area.

Some fun competition facts:

Novice means first contest ever.

Only the top 5 in each class received trophies, and many classes had more than 5 competitiors.

Women's Figure Short is up to and including 5'4", medium is over 5'4" and including 5'6" and tall is over 5'6".

Women's Master Figure is 35 years and older.

The female weight class for bodybuilding is as follows:

  • Lightweight: up to and including 125 lbs.
  • Middleweight: Over 125 and up to/including 140 lbs.
  • Heavyweight: Over 140 lbs.

Okay, thinking about my own weight. I don't want to talk about that anymore...

The weight classes are all slightly different between men's novice, men's junior and men's open. Here are the weight classes for Men's Open:

  • Lightweight: Up to and including 154.25 lbs
  • Middleweight: Over 154.25 and up to/including 176.25 lbsbs
  • Light Heavyweight: Over 176.25 and up to/including 198.25 ls

TR Stewart Photography was the official photographer of the event. You can see pictures of the competitors from prejudging and the evening show here. Unfortunately, names of the competitors are not included, but you may be able to match some people up based on whether or not you can see their competitor number in the snapshot.

You could attend and take your own pictures next year! Better yet, why don't you compete? You have 12 months. Get going!
