WPW029 - 1984 U.S. Championships - (200 minutes)
1984 was the first year of our contract with the NPC for taping their national shows, and that lasted through 1999. We taped two shows in 1984- the first was this USA contest, then also the Nationals. In future years we would tape those two shows along with many Jr. Nationals and Jr. USA contests. This was a great way to start as the contest featured most of the top name women of the time including Janet Tech, Penny Price, Mary Ellen Jerumbo-Warman, Krista Parr-Anderson, Debbie Sider, Mona Krause, Janice Graser, Karen Marin, Candis Caldwell, Jeanne Splittgerber, Clare Furr, Karen Pica, Peggy Bertelson, Lesley Kozlow, Velma Buckels, Elaine Craig, Diana Dennis, Sue Ann McKean and many, many others. In addition, 'Couples Posing' was a popular event at the time, and there were about 10 Couples routines, including those of Sally Sims, Jeannie Splittgerber, Peggy Bertelson, Janice Graser and Diana Dennis with their respective partners. The entire prejudging and finals are included on these 2 MP4 Files release and the video quality is very good for the era.
Running time about 200 minutes. (PART A - 108 minutes, PART B - 93 minutes)
