WORLD LEAGUE FINALS XIII
“STAKE YOUR CLAIM IN THE WILD, WILD WEST!”
Saddle Up, Grab Your Boots and Giddy Up out to the Wild, Wild West in search of GOLD and join the Championship Festivities as the LEAGUE presents the WORLD LEAGUE FINALS XIII on Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th at the Pepper- mill Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada!!
The League will recreate a fascinating time in American History when colorful charac- ters ruled the town and scores were settled with gun slinging and shootouts.
It’ll be a Rootin’ Tootin’ good time as Cowboys and Cowgirls from across the Ameri- can Frontier will be Hooterin’ and Hollerin’ at the O.K. Corral in the Peppermill Ranch, where they will vie for Championship Gold Titles and Pristine Awards during a 2-day Shootout Competition.
Joining us in this year’s Finals will be honorable Lawmen, daring Gunslingers, bold Out- laws, Vaqueros & Gauchos, Gold Prospectors, cunning City-slickers, Poker Gamblers and heroic Cowboys! Show up and show out and become Wild West Legends like “Billy The Kid”, “The Sundance Kid”, “Wild Bill”, “Butch Cassidy”, and “Jesse James”.
Settle things the old fashioned way in face-to-face Martial Art Shootouts with your most rivaled foe. Will you emerge when the dust settles? Can you “Stake Your Claim in the Wild, Wild West!!”?
Prep your Stagecoaches, grab your Cowboy Hats and Round up your Posse of Bandits and head out West in search of Adventure and Gold in the Wild, Wild West!!
