Is the SBG site still up and running. The usual URL doesn't seem to be working, and Ron hasn't posted for a few months.

Anyhoo, here's a new clipping for you, Ron. From 1979.

thanks everyone. :)

Where my site is hosted at, i have lsot contact with them. Their phone has changed and they dont reply to their emails. So I am currently working on it. Naturally my domnain name has expired cause it was also paid through them. If I cant get it up and running with them, I will have to just get another hosting site, and I will be using a different domain name since i cant get mine back unless i pay some outlandish fee that is hundreds of dollars.

I do have a update for the site, it is around 70 new Graham dates ranging from 1973 through 1987. Knocked the hell out of Florida for 1984. Less than probably 10 dates left for that year to show where he was booked for the CWF

3/11/85 Mount Holly, NJ
Sgt Slaughter beat Ivan Koloff COR
Bob Backlund beat Ron Bass
Superstar Billy Graham beat Manuel Soto
Larry Zbyszko beat Rocky Jones
Pez Whatley beat JJ Dillon
Pete Sanchez drew Davey O’Hannon

That card minus "Pez Whatley beat JJ Dillon" allegedly happened on the day in Willingboro, NJ if there was no mixup. Source is Shedlock Vol. 10 Issue 6 Page 1, attendance was listed at 400

The two towns are about 4 miles or less apart. I had seen the shedlock volumes about a year ago and tried to figure this out already. My thoughts are that it was probably advertised in the Willingboro newspapers for Mount Holly since they sit side by side almost. Willingboro sits on the west side of route 295, and Mount Holly sits on the east side. I have yet to get to that area to figure it all out.

Ron,

March 11, 1985 was a Monday, so it extremely unlikely they held both an afternoon card and evening card.  I think your hunch is probably correct.

Doing more research into this date, James Morrison has given me information that leads to a total different city name. Burlington, NJ. That city is aprximately 2 to 3 miles north of both cities previously listed. I will be altering my record book to reflect Burlington, NJ.

Hey Ron,

I just saw that there is confusion about the March 11, 1985 card in either Mount Holly/Burlington/Willingboro NJ. I live about twenty minutes from this area. I will try to got to the local library in that area in the next few weeks, and see if I can't help you with this.

Hope all is going well with your research.

They came from the Belton newspaper correct? When I did my original research I used the Killeen newspaper. I had drove to Texas and at that time years and years ago, i had hit Dallas, Ft worth, Corpus Cristi, San Antonio, Houston. Also did Laredo and Victoria. I tried in Austin but could not find a paper that carried anything for advertising. I tried Temple, and got nothing. I tried Killeen, and found they ran once a month. I tried a few other small cities that I felt might be spot shows for Saturdays but with no luck.

I seen they used different boxs adds for the same venue. I kind of find that interesting. Killeen and Belton, if that is the paper, are what? 5 miles apart?

They were from the Fort Hood Sentinel, the weekly newspaper for the military base.

With regards to the different ads... I think that the newspapers did the ads themselves, rather than the promoter sending them in. That explains the spelling mistakes. "Georffery Portz"
