A Brief History of B.R.A.W.L (Broads Regional Arm Wrestling League)

For Immediate Release

Friday, July 17th, 6 – 8 pm and Saturday, July 18th, 1 – 5 pm

Roos Arts is thrilled to present A Brief History of B.R.A.W.L., a two day event showcasing photographs, costumes, memorabilia, and videos from past B.R.A.W.L. tournaments. This show highlights how bad ass women come together to arm wrestle and raise money for good causes. B.R.A.W.L. is growing in popularity with each event. Why? ...because the competition is so fierce. Whether you are a wrestler, a judge, a posse member, a referee, or a spectator, the tournament will draw you in and turn you into an active participant.

Many of the photographs to be displayed at Roos Arts have been collected from spectators of past events and convey how much fun can be had by do-gooders in costume. The theatrical performance - political, thoughtful and grandiose – presents each wrestler as an arm wrestling super hero with names like, “Sweatlana Slapovitch”, “Jackie O’Nasty”, “Iron Maiden”, “Kiki Yor Butt”, “Dee Baser”, “La Nina” or “Bets Von DieStrongArm".

A Brief History of B.R.A.W.L. will also tell the history of the founders and how the league came to be. Some of the league’s most infamous wrestlers will join us on Friday and Saturday to sign autographs and flex their muscles. We will have Benefit Prints for sale and all proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley.

Opening will be followed by:

This is beyond sport. This is beyond entertainment. This is brute strength on stage.
