I feel honored and humbled to be welcomed back!

Stay tuned as more exciting announcements will be made over the course of the next few weeks.

Jake Hamaker:  Always an honor to be a part of your shows Ron and Susan Smith. So professional and hospitable.


Wow...Just when we think the show can't get any better, you one up yourselves! ..You two are like machines! Not one detail is overlooked. This show is second to none and the jewel of the Northwest. Thank you for your love of the sport, and your drive to always entertain the audience.  Lou and Levi; SPORTS NUTRITION CENTER OWNERS, Tigard, Oregon

Ron & Susan: I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for such a great event.  This was my first time ever doing a bodybuilding show and you made it an incredible experience.  Great venue, incredible organization, very entertaining show – some of the powerlifting organizations where I’ve lifted could certainly take a lesson or two from you guys! I had been telling all my training partners that this was a “one and done”, but I had such a great time I’m taking another swing at it!

I wanted to tell you I LOVED the new format for judging and awards! It was so efficient and well ran! All competitions should be run this way. You all did a great job. Thanks again and see you next year!  Tim J. Bias, Agent / Farmers Insurance

Good morning!  First off, I thought you and your team pulled off a very well run show, thank you.  I can imagine you must have been a bit apprehensive from the perspective of the new format but I thought the format worked well.  Thanks again, can't wait until the next one!

First of thank you for such an amazing experience you all put a lot of work into that show! Greatly appreciate everyone's time! Had a blast! Gina - Oregon Competitor

Hello Susan, I competed at your show yesterday and placed second in my class. I had a wonderful time and you guys did a great job with everything. Once again thank you so much for all that you do.  It was a great time! Nikki Hurliman

Ron and Susan, Thank you for yet another wonderful experience this weekend at your show! Every year you amaze me at how you are able to make this year even better than the last one! You guys are awesome and it’s a great feeling to be remembered and feel as though you are part of a large "family" in this sport. So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for another wonderful experience that makes us want to be back next year! Sincerely, Shalii & Terry Crownover

Hi Susan!  you guys did a fantastic job! It was fun and very classy...thank you and Ron for all of your hard work! Kathy Vouchell
Hi,  My name is Lynn and I was at the competition this last weekend. It was the first time I’d ever been to a competition and I had an amazing time. Thank you so much and great job, Lynn
Ron, I want to say that my girlfriend and I attended your show last weekend for the first time and really enjoyed the show. It was a great production and was done with class. Thank you, again fantastic show, keep up the great work. Tod Becraft

Dear Ron and Susan just wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting you and having the chance to be a competitor at the show. Thank you again and I look forward in participating in some of your future shows. Mel Roberts

Ron & Susan, I just wanted to say thank you for making the Competition so much fun!  From the time I first contacted you with questions about the event, to the sweet Congratulations Card from you a week after the event... everything exceeded my expectations. The check in was easy, backstage ran smoothly and the event was completely over at a very reasonable time. You are very helpful and make you us feel comfortable. Very classy and well done! ~ Pam Ball, Novice Women's BodyBuilding 1st place and Over-All

Hi Ron and Susan, Thanks again for having me as your guest performer :-)  I had a great time and as usual was impressed with how smooth and organized everything went.  You always run such a terrific show. I think my team is all fired up to come compete again. God Bless, Nikki (& Brett)  

Thank you for putting on another quality show!  I have gone to see friends compete in old auditoriums, with bad lighting and horrible sound systems and their families and friends (including me) sitting in hard uncomfortable seats in a drafty room!  It is very disheartening when that happens because everyone has worked so hard!  I enjoy competing in your shows because I am confident all the technical stuff is going to go off without a hitch and all I have to do is concentrate on having fun out there!  My family and friends get to sit together at their own table and be comfortable while they watch the competition. I had a blast this year and can't wait until May. Keep up the good work, I am one competitor that truly appreciates all that both of you do to give us a quality venue to display our dedication and success! Thanks again and God Bless! Karen Clifford, Competitor / NPC Judge

Thank you so much for all you have done for us, and we look forward to participating in the Ironman next year. Competitor Jay Sandmann

Dear Ron and Susan Smith, I wanted to formally thank you for your wonderful hospitality at the show this past weekend.  I was thoroughly impress with the way it was run and the attention to detail you performed from beginning to end.  It was truly a great run show. Your attention to detail and all that you do for the competitors and their families and to all the guests like myself, while having to organize and get all the things done... I was in awe of everything you do. Thank you SO much for setting a great example for all of us and for doing all that you do. MUCH ALOHA to you both!!!!  Warmly, Angela Leong; IFBB Bikini Pro

This contest was literally a blast! I loved out little beach condo, the little shops, and the atmosphere etc… it really could not have gotten any better. I was very excited for my Client Luke Fritz winning the Novice Overall, I think I got more emotional over seeing him succeed than myself, as I know how incredible the feeling is for the first time. OPEN MENS OVERALL CHAMPION; MATT PORTER

Thank you again for a great show.  It was truly a fun day and your staff ran everything to a tee!  Great group of competitors backstage, definitely a class act of ladies!!! Erin Moore; Master Figure OA Champion

Ron and Susan~ I am sending this email to give you both a great big Thank you for putting on an amazing show!! It was only my 2nd show ever, and wanted to say hands down this was a great show to be a part of. I competed in Figure 5'6 and under and placed 4th so it made it even better ;) I just wanted to make sure to let you know that all the time, effort, and energy that you put into the show definitely did not go unnoticed! It was amazing! Thanks again! Katie Rowlett

Hi Ron and Susan, My name is Kelly Deal,  I was a competitor in your show this weekend at Chinook Winds. First of all I want to say thank you for putting on an amazing show and how well it was executed.
The work you and Ron have put into these shows over the years is amazing! I have always looked forward to competing at your shows. You guys have always been so competitor friendly and your backstage crews have always been so helpful. It is always a pleasure and honor to compete at an R.K. Smith Production!! Thank you for all you have done for Oregon bodybuilding!!! Always, Matthew Parsons

Ron and Sue, I just want to say thanks again for promoting a great show. You guys put on a first rate contest and I can’t say enough good things about the way that it was run. Your staff members were also great. I’ve been competing since the late 80’s and your show is one of the best that I have ever entered. Also, thank you for the card. Just another professional touch from you guys. Thank you again, Mell Taylor Spokane, WA.


Had such a great time judging. I absolutely adore Ron & Susan Smith, who are two of the most generous People I know. They have such an awesome show....and when you go to their show to compete....that's exactly what you do...You step on stage and they run you thru top 5, next 5, next 5 and so on.....No messing around! If and when I ever compete again....I WILL do a Smith show...absolutely. THAT is the way that shows should run....In my opinion. LOVE IT! Love THEM! loved the location....all 6 1/2 hours of driving to get there, totally worth the road trip! Congrats to the all did a magnificent job! ~Trainer Shannon

Well, this has been another successful year for R.K. Smith Productions. They do an awesome show, give great attention to detail, treat their staff, athletes and audience with care and respect and it's no wonder people come back every year! Congratulations to Ron and Sue, and the great athletes who competed on both nights!!!! Until next time. Ric Olson for

Ron & Susan, I just wanted to send you quick email letting you know as a competitor I have been to very many Body Building shows that I was extremely impressed on how well you both elegantly put on this Body Building Competition. Everything seemed to run so smoothly. This show was definitely worth the 5 1/2 hr drive from Kirkland, Wa. Faith Liles Women's Figure Champion

Thank you so much for the wonderful show you produced! Terry and I had a wonderful experience and we met some of the nicest people. What a great time! I was very apprehensive about doing a competition and now I can't wait for the next one. All of the competitors were quality people who were always willing to help out and loan you whatever you may have needed. That is not what we expected. I hope that you continue to do this for many years, so that everyone who dreams of competing one day can have the pleasure of  being in one of your shows! Thank you again. Sincerely, Terry and Shalii Crownover (Competitors)

Ron & Susan, Thank you for all of your kindness & support, for such a wonderful show, and letting us be part of it!   Duane & Stephanie Forsberg, 29 Palms, California  Overall Men's Novice Champion
Hi Ron and Susan,  I wanted to thank you again for a fantastic event this year. You two do an excellent job making your shows a high quality event, not only for the athletes, but for the friends and family that come to cheer us on. I have done a few shows now and I have to say that you really make the athletes feel appreciated.   It all starts with the great letter we get once we register giving us detailed information about what to expect, the check-in is easy and the bags were great, and the organized manner of the competitors meeting and the overall production of the show is top notch!....Keep up the excellent job, you know you are doing something right when this show keeps selling out! Renee Daly / Women's Heavy Weight Champion/ NPC Judge

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Smith,  I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put in to making this year's show a big success.  I had a great time and experience.  It was my first show and I ended up with first place in lightweight novice women and overall novice.  Lincoln City was beautiful and a great place to host a show. It was an experience I will never forget and glad that I was part of the "first class" show that was put on. Thanks a million for making two of my dreams come true! I hope your finding time to relax now, and best wishes to you both.  Sincerely, Deanna Heartsfield (Competitor)
