National Arm Wrestling Competition returns to Galloways 4WD Truck Show & Pull

RICHFIELD — The 3rd Annual Galloways 4wd Stand-Up Armwrestling Tournament will be held, once again, at the 37th Annual Galloways Truck Show & Pull on Saturday, April 28 at 45224 Finch Road.
This competition is for the state championship, which prepares them for Nationals and Worlds Competitions later this year. Registration and weigh in is from 3-4 p.m. and the tournament will begin at 4 p.m. Last year, there were 50 entries, with the 1st place winners awarded a total of $500. This year, we hope to have over 100 entries and to double the prize money along with two trophies to the winners.
Anyone above age 16 may compete, however parent must be present to sign the release for any minor. There will be one competitor’s bracket, double-elimination formatted. Competitors are seeded in the bracket by weight: Novice, Lightweights, Middleweights, and Heavyweights.
Armwrestling matches have rules and guidelines to protect competitors from injuries and to keep the matches orderly.
The referee sets the grip and squares the competitors’ shoulders. Once the grip is set, the referee will use the command “GO” to start the match. If a competitor loses the grip at any point during the match, the referee will restart the match and apply a strap to bind the competitors hands together.
Competitors may be disqualified for committing a foul during the match, which include moving or resisting the referee’s commands while the referee sets the grip; losing contact from peg; gaining position by losing contact with the elbow pad; two false starts (before ref commands “GO”); and not obeying the referee’s commands once the “GO” command has been issued.
This is a family-oriented event. Visit https://eventhits.net/new-london-4/3rd-annual-galloways-4×4-armwrestling-tournament/ to learn more.
