Milwaukee to host North American Challenge 2010

USA vs. Canada — this heavyweight match of the two national teams will take place September 8-11, 2010 at Milwaukee Lake Park. Each team will be comprised of ten men and ten women who will be divided into two sections and compete for the Jarvis Cup and Folkins Cup plus bragging rights in the overall standings.

In the past Canada has dominated this event, which is held every other year, but Team USA has been closing the gap and looks to be strong in 2010. The team is likely to include some Central home-boys who know every blade in the green.
