SHOWTIME: 907 Pro Wrestling brings Alaska attitude to the ring!

907 Pro Wrestling Academy is the only pro wrestling training center in the state of Alaska. They train and promote local talent and hold shows around town here in Anchorage. I was skeptical being from the South and growing up with the likes of Rick Flair, Jerry Lawler and Dusty Rhodes. But I was pleasantly surprised to find the action, the characters and just the pure entertainment was awesome. The energy and effort each match put into their characters and working the crowd of more than 200 fans was wrestling gold. The fans at the Artic Recreation Center were thrilled and got their money’s worth with the high flying, flipping, taunting and all out brawls that spilled out into the audience.

That's where the Sanctioned Camps Community Task Force says they're getting involved in identifying possible sites for temporary camps - to give the city time to establish a permanent, low-barrier homeless shelter.
Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day has been a federal holiday since 1971.
