PRO DIVISION INC ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS
Pro Division Inc is proud to announce the initial event on their schedule with the return of NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS, September 15th and 16th at the Town Hall Theater in New York City.
NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS is the second longest running professional event in Bodybuilding history with the show this fall being 27th edition of the event.
The event will take place over two days with the Friday night affair being an Amateur Pro Qualifier in which the top two finishers in each of the five weight divisions will earn “pro status” in Pro Division Inc and be eligible to compete as a professional in Night of Champions the next day. Saturday will feature the NOC judging at 2:00PM and the NOC finals at 8:00PM.
Wayne S. DeMilia, CEO of Pro Division Inc states, “We are pleased and privileged to have Night of Champions be the opening of this new beginning, but we will also keep parts of the past to have this event remain as a compass for the navigation of the sport. I am elated that Charles Blake, the greatest stage innovator and designer in Bodybuilding history, will be at my side to elevate the level of NOC to heights never before achieved. Charles will not only outdo anything ever seen at a Bodybuilding event, he will also bring in his staff of lighting, staging and audio aficionados to give the fans an evening of entertainment and amazement that will be hard pressed to match.
DeMilia goes on, “We are also happy to bring the event back to the Town Hall Theater, the location of the first NOC in 1978. Town Hall is a beautiful intimate theater, with state of the art lighting and sound. With no orchestra pit, the site lines are perfect and the fans will feel that they are right on top of the stage. In fact, from the front row of the loge boxes in the balcony to the front of the stage is only 29 feet. This will give the fans the opportunity to see details in the physique that, in the past, was only available to the judges.”
In closing, DeMilia announces, “This is only our first event of 2006. Our next press release will announce other events on the PDI fall contest schedule. We are on track to have a minimum of 6 shows this fall, 12 to 15 shows in 2007, and 25 pro events encompassing all major continents by the 2010 season.”
