Sardines would be embarrassed by how many folks we squeezed into the Blue Moon Diner Tuesday night. Oh my, but it was a glorious night of wrassling, drinking and cursing. Oh, and fundraising. After expenses, we raised $807 for our girl Cowgirl Sady-istic aka P.E.A.C.E. Scooter Girl, who’s departing to make her peace documentary on her scooter in just a few weeks. You can read her rolicking account of the night on her blog.
The new wrassler The Homewrecker was dominant from the very first round and went on to win the competition after crushing tiny houses and tiny arms. There was a fracas between the Under-the-Table Empire and a “good looking man” in the front row, as Nurse Cheryl refers to him. The whole thing is beautifully documented by the Daily Progress’s Megan Lovett on the DP website.
Kaity the Harrible, the crowd favorite, who showed very respectably in the final round with Homewrecker, gave my favorite quote to the media: “Arm wrestling is…mmmm….maybe 90% mental and 80% physical. You gotta want it.”
Stay tuned for info about next month’s tournament on May 13th in support of the Charlottesville Derby Dames.
