Australian Armwrestling 
Federation Formed
By Richard Aplin

On Thursday, the 15th of March we officially founded the Australian Armwrestling Federation. We used Roberts Rule with Rick taking minutes. We elected Neil Bell as the president, Rick Powell as the Vice President, Simon Palamara as the Treasurer and myself as the Secretary. Jerry Wade, Kevin Calloby and Darrell Mitchell were elected as board members.

On Sunday the 18th of March (this Sunday) at 10am till about 3pm there will be a referee-training clinic for the sport of Armwrestling in Australia. Neil Bell will be running the clinic. Neil is the newly elected president of the Australian Armwrestling Federation that has just been formed. Everybody is welcome to come along and be trained as a referee. You are also welcome if you are just wanting to come along and find out more about the sport of armwrestling. We will have a proper padded armwrestling table set up for everyone to practice on while the referees gain experience by refereeing you.

The venue for the clinic will be the exact same place where we had the meeting on Thursday night. We are going to meet at the Sydney University Sports and Aquatic Center also known as the Noel Martin Recreation Center inside Sydney University on the Darlington (south western) side of the campus. To get there you turn off City Road into Butlin Avenue. Butlin Avenue runs into Codrington St. The center is located on the Eastern Side of Codrington Street and is easy to find. The place is also a short walk from Redfern Station. When exiting Redfern Station, turn left and walk West along Abercromie St (the street in which Redfern Station is located). Turn Right at Codrington St and you will find the center on the right.

We will be meeting in what is formally called the "Meeting Room". The meeting room is actually a glassed in room located right next to the pool deck. When you walk in, tell the reception that you are going to the armwrestling meeting in the meeting room. You will be able to see the meeting room from the foyer as it is glassed in. The staff in the foyer should be able to direct you to it if you get lost. If you can't make the meeting at 10 am, feel free to turn up at a later time if you like. If you are planning to undergo the referee training however, it is best that you turn up promptly at 10am.
