The World's Wristwrestling Championships and
Petaluma, California have much to offer you in 1999. This year's tournament will continue
to lead the sport in originality and excitement. There will be a total of over $5000.00 in
cash and prizes awarded to the Professional Classes. Since 1989 we have used armwrestling
tables and rules and will continue that practice. We have been in contact with many new
wrestlers this year and expect to see many new competitors from all over the United
States, and throughout the world. Again this year we will have the presentation of
Champion T-shirts to the first place winners in each class. This is the LAST QUALIFIER
for TEAM USA Moscow 2000. The first and second place winners in the professional
classes will automatically qualify to attend the "Golden Bear International
Championships" in Moscow, Russia in April 2000. This will be the only team attending
from the United States so don't miss your chance to join us for the eleventh annual trip
to Moscow. This year is the eleventh anniversary for the Golden Bear and we are promised
the most exciting tournament ever.
This year's tournament will again be held at the Mystic Theater in downtown Petaluma,
21 Petaluma Blvd. North. We are very excited about this great location. This is our fourth
year there and know you will enjoy the atmosphere. For those of you that have not
attended our tournament, this is the 38th annual Anniversary. It has always been held in
Petaluma, California and was viewed by millions when aired by "ABC's Wide World of
Sports" for 16 years. In 1995 it was televised all over the world on the Discovery
Channel and in 1996 was featured on the Sunday NBC World edition news (Five minutes right
between the Pope and President Clinton) plus ABCs Wide World of Sports did a segment
on us based on a prior tournament.
Petaluma is in the heart of California's "Wine Country" and is also only a 35
minute drive from the sights of San Francisco and about 30 minutes from Marine World
Africa USA in Vallejo, California. It is the perfect place to take your family for
vacation and also give you the opportunity to compete in the oldest and best-known
tournament in the World. The tournament that started the organized sport of armwrestling.
If you are flying in you can book your flights into San Francisco or Oakland, California.
Oakland Airport is easy to get in and out of and is also the same distance from Petaluma.
Again this year you will receive a $5.00 discount when you enter more than one weight
class. We are looking forward to seeing many of you enter more divisions because of this
benefit. Remember there is no clothing allowance again this year. You may weight-in
without clothing. There are Friday night weigh-ins for those of you concerned about your
weight. Location will be announced. Weigh-ins will also be held Saturday morning at the
Mystic Theater 8 AM to Noon prior to the tournament which will start at 1 PM.
