September Newsletter


          This month we would like to focus on the Northeast Message Board ( ).  This message board has become the number one board anywhere for armwrestlers interested in good articles on armwrestling.  Training tips, practice sessions and super discussions concerning armwrestling.  As of late this board has attracted many armwrestlers from places like Poland, Sweden, Germany, England, Israel, Romania, Canada and many more.  All the members have a picture posted so that you know who you are talking to at all times.  There is a section for members profiles and private messages between members.  In order to become a member you must apply with the Board Administrator. There is info posted on the board and also on the Maine Armwrestling Site about joining.  This is the only Board I have ever seen where John Brzenk posts on a regular basis.  You really should check it out.
