Only a few left! When: Friday, Feb. 25 / Doors open 7:15 / Tournament at 8:00 Where: Behind the Blue Moon Diner, where else?
The weekend of Jan. 15 & 16, 2011, CLAW will host five representatives from five other cities' ladies arm wrestling leagues to work towards the creation of a central umbrella organization. We will meet a host of women and men from Hudson Valley BRAWL, CLLAW of Chicago, NOLAW of New Orleans, DCLAW of Washington, DC, and skype in the organizer from Taos BRAWL.
CLAW is dead, long live CLAW! Rumor has it that there won't be a CLAW on Nov. 12th, 2010, behind the Blue Moon Diner, but you should check it out for yourself. And bring $5 cover in cash at the very least. Proceeds go to support The Women's Initiative, a local organization that works to provide effective counseling services, social support and education to empower women to transform challenging life situations into opportunities for renewed well-being and personal growth.
