At B.R.A.W.L. events, arm wrestlers like Jackie-O-Nasty, Fanny Packer, Nurse Hatchet, Dee Baser, and Queen Victorious duke it out on a regulation arm wrestling table. The competition is fierce and filled with sweat, groans and foul play. Each woman brings her own posse to back her up. Broads Regional Arm Wrestling League is where Hudson Valley ladies walk the line between pro wrestling antics, theatrics, and pure strength competitive sport. Eight women wrestlers, each with their own character theme and wrestling moniker, compete in each B.R.A.W.L. competition. They have money-hungry entourages who collect “bets” from the crowd. Rules are determined and managed by the referee, and manipulated and corrupted by the wrestlers, celebrity judges, crowd hecklers, and muscle lovin’ bet-hedgers.
This is beyond sport. This is beyond entertainment. This is brute strength on stage.
Place your bets on the broad of your choice, then watch your cash go towards local organizations whose services benefit women and girls. The first three matches raised over $1700 for Family of Woodstock’s Battered Women’s Services and Ulster County Teen Parent Services!
This tournament will benefit Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley

There is no cover charge, but please bring money for “betting” on the wrestlers of your dreams.
