          We have been real busy this month.  Between the upcoming World Championship in Canada and all the other tournaments.  In next months Newsletter I should have all the info on the Unifieds for 2004.  As for the World Championship there is a flyer posted on the tournament page with all the details, location, dates and Hotel accommodations.   This would be a good time to take a vacation and go to Canada for this Championship.  They are expecting 30 countries.  It would be a great experience and a learning tool, plus all the fellow armwrestlers you would meet.
