WITH UNITED STATES ARMSPORTS
As we all should know by now is that the World Championship will be held
in Illinois this November. The
Unified Nationals are expected to be not only large but also packed with some of
the best pullers around the country. The
IAF would like to wish anyone going to these events the best of luck.
This event will be well
worth going to watch even if you didnít qualify.
I myself will not be able to make the Nationals but I was invited to
referee the Worldís. This is certainly a great honor.
Hope to see a lot of old friends there and make some new ones.
We have added a Photo Center to the IAF site; it is located on the Chat
Room page. Anyone can upload their
armwrestling pictures from their computer.
This is provided for all armwrestlers. Letís try to keep the pictures
related to armwrestling in some way.
We have also added a Guest Map to both the IAF and WAF sites.
Both are on the home pages near the Guest Book.
Open it up and place a mark where you live. There is a place for your
e-mail and web site, plus a space for messages.
We hope everyone will take advantage of these two new additions.
