Already looking forward to 2010, Harkless and Wattles told IronMind® today that their hometown of Billings, Montana will host the Unified US National Armwrestling Championships and then the 2010 WAF World Championships will be held in Las Vegas. Approximate timing for the nationals is the first week of August and for the worlds, the first week of December is looking likely.
"So we’re saying, 'The Road to Las Vegas Goes Through Billings,'” Harkless and Wattles said.
