Message from Mr. Fred Roy
Before we start please make note of the change of date of next year's WAF championship. THE WAF CHAMPIONSHIPS WILL BE NOV. 17 - 24, COLLINSVILLE, ILLINOIS, USA. Everything else remains the same, venues, etc. The booking agency at the venue booked the wrong dates. Please make sure to pass this change of date to all your people and organizations.
The last year, 2001, showed an immense growth in numbers and strength in our organization. The championships in Poland were quite unbelievable, with 895 (see editors note at bottom) competitors from 29 countries. We had a very productive General Assembly and our tournament went smoothly, on schedule in spite of the numbers. Igor and Anna, along with their volunteers, did some great work. As with every championship we come away with some opportunities for the future. On behalf of the World Armwrestling Federation (WAF), I wish to extend a big thank you and congratulations to them and continued success on their promotions of armwrestling.
I would like to recap some of the highlights that we have addressed and it is important for member countries to comply.
Till next time, yours in armwrestling!
Editors note: armwrestling.com had reported 809 entrants but final audit showed there were a total of 895 competitors.
