     We would like to take this time to wish all going to the World Championships in Illinois this month the  very best of Luck..  Would love to see US take the Team Championship.   All the results should be posted on the USA site:  shortly after the event is over.  I will get as much info as I can at the Worldís and publish them either next month or January. There will be some discussion about new weight classes and most important of all Unification and what we can do about making it happen.
