Our Next Reunion Set For October 17th, 2015 at the Marriott Hotel in Newark Airport, NJ
The date of the 2015 AOBS Reunion is October 17, 2015. The event will be held at the Marriott Hotel in the Newark, NJ Airport. This will be a super event with some amazing honorees, including National Weightlifting Champion Gary Deal and Mr. America, John Decola. The evening includes a wonderful 5 course dinner, terrific strength performances and many other surprises.
While honoring these fabulous stars for their achievements is our primary objective on the day of the reunion, these annual AOBS gatherings offer a unique opportunity to learn the history of the Iron Game and what we have learned from that history. Prior to the dinner, there will be a Collectors and Historical Meeting and a Seminar on some facet of the Iron Game, along with a variety of exhibitions of strength. Finally, as always, the reunion will provide a very special opportunity to renew old friendships and make new ones.
