Hey Crew,  I hope your Holidays were blessed!  Cliff Hall (Poppa Bear) and myself (Momma Bear) both had our hip and knee replaced, respectively.  We thought a two for one price  would be a good approach but the hospitals simply would not work with us on the deal. Silly hospitals!  While we are both crying at physical therapy, we are happy to announce the first event of the 2007 calendar will be the Heartlands biggest event!  For 22 years the Heartland has literally pulled for the hungry in a fund raiser for Saint Joseph, Missouri (just north of Kansas City, MO). 
We ask that you make your reservation now with the hotel for the Heartland Armwrestling rates are only good until this Tuesday, then standard rates will apply.  Last year, the American Legion had about 500 persons in attendance to watch the action on 3 tables; results can be found on our site at www.armwrestle.com.  We hope you will be apart of the 2007 PULL FOR THE HUNGRY!!!

The Erin Zinna and Christopher Molsbee "Last Warrior Standing" Memorial will be given to the overall right handed winner in both female and male classes plus the contributions made to American's Second Harvest Food Bank will be done in their memories.
