July 2007


            I hope everyone that came to the cookout/practice/pool party had a good time.  We had about 30 people there plus a bunch of kids.  It was nice to see Graceann Swift again.  She looked great and thinks she might get back into armwrestling.  She just needs to get into shape and do some training.  We could do this once or twice a month if enough pullers are interested. Either Saturday or Sunday.  Anyone interested let me know.

            The problem with the Women's Ranking has not changed much.  Last update I only received one panel members list from the US and none from Canada.  This time I have received one from the US and one from Canada.  As a result of this I will probably discontinue the Women's Ranking page.

I will update it this time and that will be the end.  I will leave it on-line for awhile.
