The Chicago Wrestling Festival at Navy Pier is fast approaching. There is a freestyle tournament in the morning, which is open to everyone. Weigh-ins are from 7 to 8 and wrestling begins at 9. There are no specific weight classes. Instead, you will be placed in groups of 4 that are bracketed to put wrestlers of similar weight and experience together. Wrestling is round-robin in your group, so you should get 3 matches.
To register you will need a USA Wrestling card, which everyone in the club should have anyway. The entry fee is $25 if you pre-register, $35 at the door. Note that you do not pay this fee until you get there. Registration closes April 24 or when the limit of 700 is reached, whichever occurs first. To register use the following link:
In addition to wrestlers we also need volunteers to help run things. Mostly this will involve working at the tables during the tournament. Each volunteer will receive a T-shirt and lunch voucher. Please contact me if you are able to help out.
Unless you are busy that day I am hoping that all club members will be able to attend either as competitors or volunteers.
If you have any questions you can go to the web site www.worldsportchicago.org or contact me.
