It was an honour to be shooting video of this very special historic event. The main honoree for me personally was Chet Yorton, Mr Universe. I had not seen Chet since our shoot in London in 1975, on the day after his victory in the 1975 NABBA Pro Universe. The photo he chose as the image for his painting, presented to him by artist Jim Sanders, was the kneeling pose that appeared on the Iron Man magazine cover, January 1978 issue.
Other notables present included Dr Bob Goldman, Bob Gajda, John and Roland Balik, photographer Denie, Russ Testo, Drs Terry & Jan Todd, Dave Webster, Bob Gruskin, Olympic Gold medalist Isaac Berger, Joe Abbenda, Dr Leo Rosa, Fred Yale, Norm Komich, Odd Haugen, John Corlett and Joe Marino.
