WITH UNITED STATES ARMSPORTS
We found the trouble with the chat room. The server (anexa) went out of business with no notice. Therefore the IAF site was lost totally. We have just finished putting together a new IAF web site. It is different from the other site. We have a new and improved chat room, which is still on Tuesday night at 9PM. We also have added a message board to post upcoming events and past results, plus anything else of interest to the armwrestlers. There is a photo album on the main page and another one on the events & links page. Only 1 picture now but we will update as soon as possible. There are 23 links to other armwrestling sites on page two. Also an armwrestling poll, so make sure you vote. Please check out the new site and let us know your thoughts. http://iaf1.homestead.com is the new address.
The Harley Pull was held at the Ramada Inn in Montpelier, Ohio.
