A Day Of Armed Combat In Rockaway
The City of New York Parks and Recreation and the New York Arm Wrestling Association have joined forces to present the 26th Annual White Castle ‘Queen sboro’ Arm wrestling Championships to be held at Rockaway Beach on Sunday, August 10, on the boardwalk’s Main Stage at 116 Street.
Weigh-in and registration begins at 11a.m. and Start time is 1p.m. Free Admission and Entry will be provided for everyone thanks to the proud sponsor, White Castle Hamburgers.
Queens resident Sean Ringgold is last years Queens MVP, Arm-Star Award winner and is favored to win this years Championship. The Queens arm wrestling event will feature up to 13 weight classes for both men and women. Plus a featured event, an ‘OPEN PRO’ right and left hand contest will be held for men only.
Customized Arm Wrestling Awards will also be given for first, second and third place in each weight class and ‘Queensboro’ Arm of Steel male and female MVP will be crowned. Since there are no residency requirements, we expect over 100 entries from the New York Tri-State Area. All award winners will qualify for the November 13, 2003, EMPIRE STATE Finals to be held in Manhattan.
The New York ‘Golden Arm’ Series consists of ten Preliminary Championships and a Final. These events are held each year at major festivals, fairs, racetracks, beaches and major tourist attractions in each of the five NYC Boroughs.
