2012 Wrap Up

Now that the pesky apocalypse is out of the way we can get with the brawlin. This was NO LAW’s third year of ladies arm wrestling and it was incredibly successful. 2012 saw a surprise guest appearance by Kristen Schaal, a road trip to Charlottesville, VA for the First National Super CLAW and collaborations with V-Day, Fleur de Tease, Queerspiracy and many more.

In four brawls we raised $9,100.00 for organizations/projects in the community. Yikes! We could not have done any of it without One Eyed Jack’s, DJs Justin and Brian Boyles, wrestlers, entourage members, celebrity judges, donations and the fun, lovely folks who attended the events, throwing their hard earned money at the beneficiaries. Seriously, thank you.

Please come be a part of the matriarchal mayhem. We are starting to envision the 2013 season and would love to get more folks involved.  *As a collective we resist and reject sexism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, classism and racism. Just a few ways to help:

-Wrestle! : We can always use new or repeat personas to throw down. Make a scene.

-Apply to be a beneficiary: Part of an group that is women focused? Shoot us an email and we’ll send you the tiny application.

-Donate a prize: The bets, bribes and raffle are a huge part of what we raise every brawl. Provide an incentive for the crowd to make it rain. We welcome anything from coffee shop gift certificates to DIY offers of a free bike tune up or a weekend of pet sitting. Let’s get creative, y’all.

HEY! You’re part of it. Jump into the NO LAW fray. Do whatcha wanna. YOLO (or whatever the kids are saying these days).

Flower Power

$1,500 to the girls program at Covenant House from the Matriarchal Mayhem Maytime Brawl! Big ups to DJs Justin Thomas and Brian Boyles, Howlin Wolf, photographer Katrina Arnold,  Celebrity Judges and all the amazing wrestlers and their entourages. Also, mad thanks to Kristen Schaal, of The Daily Show and 30 Rock fame, for hanging with us. She bested our Referee arm to arm and kind of maybe sort of not really got married. We love you. Kristen Schaal is a horse.

Really the biggest surprise of the night though was Grandma Foots’ transformation from shuffling little old lady next door to a neon colored dancing arm wrestling fiend. She had us all fooled. Thanks for the long con, Grandma. She made it all the way to the final round but was defeated by new champ, Cosmic Crusher. Space power took home the gorgeous trophy from the girls at Covenant House. Our other wrestlers were on top of their game too. Babe Lincoln and her Vampires treated the audience to teeth and campaign swag. Pillar of Assault got some Snookie loving and the Second Wave showed Bingo Cunninglino what old school feminism is all about. You all rule.

Join us this Saturday at One Eyed Jack’s for Rights of Spring, a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood with Fleur de Tease. Cover is ten bucks for some amazing burlesque, ladies arm wrestling booth and erotic readings of Roe v. Wade. Doors at 9, show starts at ten.

NO LAW is going on the road! We head to Charlottesville, VA in June for SuperCLAW. This will be the first ever national ladies arm wrestling championship, bringing together leagues from all over the country. Sistah Mary Slammer will be repping us hard and we want to win! More information and excitement to come.
