I would just like to say hello to the group. My name is Carl Dorr and I will be your sports coordinator for the 2015 tug-o-war event. We are in the process of finalizing the rules and locking down a venue site. I will post the information as soon as I have it.

Wouldn't mind joining a tug of war team if a team is short of someone. I'm an Australian police officer. In the light weights team as I'm only 67kg and 46 yrs old. Will be competing in the bench and push/pull also.

Erica Withnell That's good to hear Megan. It didn't seem a particularly brutal sport. I don't know why so many people complained of minor injuries 4 years ago
