World's Wristwrestling Championship
The World's Wristwrestling Championships and Petaluma,
California have much to offer you in 2000. This year's tournament will continue
to lead the sport in originality and excitement. There will be a total of over
$5000.00 in cash and prizes awarded to the Professional Classes. Since 1989 we
have used armwrestling tables and rules and continue that practice. We have been
in contact with many new armwrestlers this year and expect to see many new
competitors from all over the United States, and throughout the world. Again
this year we will have the presentation of Champion T-shirts to the first place
winners in each class.
This year's tournament for the first time will be held at the larger Phoenix Theater in downtown Petaluma, 201 Washington Street. We are very excited about this great new location. For those of you that have not attended our tournament, this is the 39th annual Anniversary of the official WWC and the 49th year of our initial tournament in Petaluma. It has always been held in Petaluma, California and was viewed by millions when aired by "ABC's Wide World of Sports" for 16 years. In 1995 it was televised all over the world on the Discovery Channel and in 1996 was featured on the Sunday NBC World edition news (Five minutes right between the Pope and President Clinton) plus ABCís Wide World of Sports did a segment on us based on a prior tournament.
Petaluma is in the heart of California's "Wine Country" and is also only a 35-minute drive from the sights of San Francisco and about 30 minutes from Marine World Africa USA in Vallejo, California. It is the perfect place to take your family for vacation and also give you the opportunity to compete in the oldest and best-known tournament in the World. The tournament that started the organized sport of armwrestling. If you are flying in you can book your flights into San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento, California. Oakland Airport is easy to get in and out of and is also the same distance from Petaluma as San Francisco.
Again this year you will receive a $5.00 discount when you enter more than one weight class. We are looking forward to seeing many of you enter more divisions because of this benefit. Remember there is no clothing allowance again this year. You may weigh-in without clothing. There are Friday night weigh-ins for those of you concerned about your weight. Location will be announced. Weigh-ins will also be held Saturday morning at the Phoenix Theater 9:00 AM to Noon prior to the tournament, which will start at 1:00 PM.
Bill Soberanes and I are looking forward to seeing all of you again and also meeting those we haven't yet met. We have made great strides in the sport of armwrestling in the past few years. You can now find extensive information "on the net" at http://www.armwrestling.com so look us up and see what is happening in the "World of Armwrestling". This site has exceeded the FIVE MILLION hit mark and has been selected as one of the top 5% of all the Internet sites.
