Clockwise from top: There were 40 competitors in six categories for Troy Eaton's fifth annual Arm Wrestling event at the Wellington Canada Day festivities. Troy is a former world champion and also holds bronze and silver medals along with five national wins. He was assisted by Joe Gould who is the reigning lefthand super heavy-weight champ and by Rebecca Lyons who is the current ladies right hand champion through Gould's Arm Melter Tournament held in Belleville. The Fish Pond was a popular stop for fun at the childrens' area set up at CML Snider School. All ages were proud Canadians at Wellington's event.
