How did you get started: I saw armwrestling on the Wide World Of Sports t.v show. After that I went to a local fair armwrestling tournament hosted by the Port Perry ArmWrestling Club & asked to join their team & they denied me because I wasn't strong enough at the time so I purchased an armwrestling table 5 hours away in London Ontario from  'the late' Murray Park & started the armwrestling club Kawartha ArwWrestling in Peterborough Ontario. I came to BC in 1994 & got in touch with Dave Hicks & we've been brothers in arms ever since.
