AMYLOIDOSIS represents several different types of diseases where an abnormal protein called amyloid is produced. These amyloid protein fibers can attach and deposit into organs, tissues, nerves, and other places in the body. When this happens, normal function in those areas can be affected. As the amyloid proteins increase, various health issues, organ damage or organ failure may occur. Since there are several different types of amyloidosis, the treatment may vary; therefore, an early and accurate diagnosis is critical.
The Amyloidosis Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports research through our annual grant program. Our mission is to raise awareness of the disease within the medical community, and the public, in addition to providing education, information and support for patients and their families.
Our 32nd Annual Hog Wrestling Competition is coming up Saturday July 22, 2017. We hope you can join us for this year’s Hog Wrestling Competition. 44 Audible will be providing the entertainment on Saturday night. In addition we will have live entertainment on Friday night as well as during the day on Saturday.
Traditions are made up of 2 things: Dedication and Having a Good Time. It is no wonder then that the Caldron Falls Bar and Grill Hog Wrestle has been a tradition now for 30 years! Never before has there been such a display of skill and strength, brain and brawn, mind and might. If you have yet to participate in our annual Hog Wrestling Tradition, then mark it on your calender and be prepared to let the good times roll.
What exactly is hog wrestling?
Hog wrestling is a competition where four person teams enter the mud pit/arena and try to catch a hog and lift it up onto a padded barrel. The porkers are clearly in their element, the competitors clearly are not. The whole thing ends up being a tremendous amount of fun. We have been hog wrestling here for many years now, and it has become quite an event. Literally thousands of people make the pilgrimage to the Caldron Falls Bar each July to witness the spectacle.
