The event is set for June 14th and 15th, this Friday and Saturday at the Convention Center. There will be 6 former world champions arriving to judge the top callers in the world. They will have callers from all around the country coming in. The first world championship was held January 4th, 1940 in the Battle House. The first world champion was Fred Stimpson, Mayor Sandy Stimpson's grandfather. It left Mobile somewhere in the 1990's and had been held from Birmingham to Stuttgart, AR.
