As we ramp up for the holidays, our fondest wish is that all wrestlers and coaches remain healthy and are able to compete in this tremendous sport. You may note that fan numbers at events are up. That's a good thing. Thanks for bringing others back to the sport. Please continue. The greatest gift you can give to the sport we all love is additional fans for each event, meet or tournament.

This week, our program is dedicated to all of our tournament founders, workers and volunteers. Few know how much time it takes to put together a big tournament. I do. And for the effort, planning, sweat and determination exhibited by these good folks I say Thank you and Bless you all through out this holiday season!
