Of United States Armsports
Hopefully everyone is aware that the Gladiator Tournaments never
happened. They were finally
cancelled. There was just too much
that Nick Cara the promoter couldnít explain.
When they couldnít answer my questions or show me proof in writing I
did some checking and found that Fox 5 and ESPN has no knowledge about this, I
also called Foxwood Casino in CT where I was told they would hold an event in
February and they knew nothing about this.
That is when I resigned from the event as Regional Director and Head of
Referees. I was hoping that this
was for real as a lot of pullers were.
The 2nd Annual PA Winter Blast was held at Bradyís Irish Pub
in Bensalem, PA on January 22. This
turned out to be a real winter blast with 14 inches of snow.
Thanks to everyone that braved the storm to come and pull. There were 28 entries from PA, NJ and CT.
