To members of United States ArmSports
There have been too many email to answer each one regarding the activities between USA and AAA and the agreements which took place in Canada and the current response from BB Das. These documents are presented to you without comment except that they were worked out in a state of friendship and good faith by those involved. What happens next depends on us all.

Unity in America
On July 22 in Hanau, Germany the European Armwrestling Federation Executive Committee in the name of unification voted to support the World Armwrestling Federation. All EAF member countries will be supporting the World Armwrestling Championships in Ottawa, Canada on December 1 to 5, 2003.
In further discussions it was also decided that each member country would unify under one Country Federation and that only this Federation would be allowed to participate at the World Championships.
The World Armwrestling Federation is proud to announce the unification of 42 member states within India to form part of the Asian continental body of which Japan is also a member. For the first time 7 Countries attended the African Championships and they also will be attending the WAF Championships in Canada.
It is with great deal of pleasure that we request
your presence in the unifying movement of Armwrestling in America and the World.
It will be with a great deal of goodwill that we welcome you as fellow members. The beneficiaries of this venture will be the armwrestlers of America who will be united for the first time in the history of the sport.
Awaiting your prompt reply to this very important unification matter.

WAF CIRCULAR 47/2003
All WAF Members
Subject: WAF Constitution and Rules
WAF has always made it a policy to follow its Constitution and Rules and this has helped us to grow big and strong.
There have recently been certain developments which are detrimental to the interests of WAF and WAF will not condone the same. It is to be clearly understood that even the full WAF Executive Committee or a majority or an individual of the Executive Committee does not have the right to overrule clauses in the Constitution. Such a case would be null and void. It is only if a WAF Constitutional provision is voted in for a change by the General Congress that that will become Law and that too after the lapse of one year after such a vote. While WAF can overlook minor infringements, interpretations of the Constitution or Rules, major infringements will not be accepted.
As matters stand, day to day policy matters of WAF will be implemented on behalf of the WAF Executive Committee by the WAF General Secretary, and no one else, and this too only if such policy is as per WAF Constitutional norms.
WAF reiterates that it is a fully democratic organization where the WAF President is the first among equals in the Executive Committee and has the main say in setting out guidelines as per the WAF Constitution. These guidelines are implemented by the General Secretary of WAF. All the Executive Committee members are equal in their advisory and voting rights as anyone else, including the President and the General Secretary. No one who is not a member of the WAF Executive Committee is qualified to represent WAF policy at any international forum or meeting, official or unofficial.
