The tournament was also filmed by Univission  television production Company  (THANK YOU Univission)  and will air sometime this year the air date will be posted on Armwrestling.com


John GUIDO Stanton did a great job announcing the brackets and made the tournament go smooth.


Joan Burgeson and Ginger Collins handled the brackets perfectly I have never been to a tournament that run so smooth.


Bill Collins, John Burgeson II and myself were the referees and I must say we did a great job but the main reason is the Armwrestlers everyone set up great the only problem was my son John gave me a elbow foul during one of my matches I told him he needed glasses can you imagine myself elbow fouling the ungrateful kid. (that are why tigers eat there young)


Bill and Ginger put allot of work into this tournament the table, bracket sheets, the insurance requirements and much more THANK YOU Bill and Ginger.


Domestic Violence helped staff the event doing what ever needed doing THANK YOU. 


There was no money for the winners but the awards had a rock base with metal armwrestler figures I was proud to win one it will look great in my trophies case. the tournament ended around 6:30 pm and allot of people stayed several hours after talking and having a good time. 


THANK YOU Dave Devoto for posting this tournament on you web site and all your help, Thanks Gary Roberts for filming and posting on ARM TV. (I WANT MY ARM TV)
