AFFILIATED WITH UNITED
The month of August should
settle a lot of arguments about who are the top pullers. Between the
Invitattional tournament being held at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville,
CT by the Professional Armwrestling Conference and the USA Unified National
Championship being held in little Rock, AR, a lot of questions should be
answered. There has been 4 women added to the Invitational tournament at
the Mohegan Sun, you will have to check out the Northeast Board for the
names of the Ladies invited. From all the talk on the Northeast Board and a
few other Boards it looks like the USA Unified Nationals will be packed with
top talent. The Mohegan Sun event will be filmed by Fox Sports Network and
will air on the Best Damn Sports Show. Not sure of the date yet. Arm TV
will be at the Unified Nationals to film that event and I think maybe some
interviews at Mohegan Sun. I have been informed that the Mohegan Sun event
will start at 10am on Sunday the 7th of August. Looking forward
to a big turnout of armwrestlers to impress Mohegan Sun and to cheer on your
Dave Devoto and John Burgesson have formed the
Professional Armwrestling Conference (http://www.proarmwrestler.com)
. Check out the site. They are planning to do a series of large events
that will hopefully promote the sport to a higher level. Dave Devoto has
told me that there has been more TV exposure this past 12 months that all
the years he did with Wide World of Sports. Most of this coverage is due to
the hard work of Dave Devoto.
