Here is a question posted on facebook by Todd King from Florida, USA: "Why 2 Florida States folks? Why would Karen Bean be so disrespected? I'd like to hear some folks opinions agree or disagree? What do you think?" ... read all comments here...
USA has 50 states and all country population is over 300 millions...
IN USA ARMWRESTLING IS A FEW BIG NAMES IN THIS SPORT WHOSE WORK AND ORGANIZE ARMWRESTLING EVENTS UNDER ANOTHER NAMES OR ASSOCIATIONS.
Most of them are a members of USAF Board which is the only body in USA armwrestling giving pullers opportunity to qualify for the WAF Worlds.... so why they do not decide between themself who organizes in witch state the championships and why the all INFO is not officialy annonce on the USAF website.
If the list like this appeared on USAF website with the rules that f.e. top 2 or 3 in each class qualify for the USA Nationals then pullers have clearly explained which event gives them this opportunity ... this kind of list would clear many strange situations in the future...
Who remember this thread posted also on Northeast Board: "Announcements From the USAF" ?
So many ideas were mentioned by people how to help... ANDDDDDD ?
