To all Chicago Wrestling Club members, an invitation.
After practice on Sunday, Sept. 27 (starting around 2:30), we're planning a cookout, for wrestlers and any significant others they'd like to bring, in the garden of the Edgewater Beach Apartments, 5555 N. Sheridan in Chicago. ( If the weather proves uncooperative, the party will move to my apartment in the building.) There will be hamburgers and brats, beer and other beverages, etc. To make this work, we need to know--with a reasonable degree of certainty--how many people to buy food and drink for. If you're planning to come, please email me as soon as you can (and no later than Friday the 25th). My email address is [address removed]. You can also reach me by phone at[masked]-9532.
There's parking in the building ($3.00 for 3 hours, $6.00 for 6 hours) as well as on Bryn Mawr in front of and/or on the block west of the building. The building garage entrance is the downhill driveway at the south end of the building.
Even if you haven't been coming to practices recently, you're cordially invited. We hope to see (a lot of) you there.
Meet other local fans and participants of all levels of Veterans Freestyle, Greco and Folkstyle Wrestling! All ability levels welcome to develop new techniques, practice with other competitors, and participate in tournaments. This is a great opportunity for beginners to learn a new and challenging sport, as well as provide drilling partners for old wrestlers that want to stay in the game. Our core membership includes experienced coaches who can help you learn the basics and provide chances to improve your mat skills. Come understand why wrestling, the 'World's Oldest Sport', continues to attract new fans and participants, just like it has for (literally) thousands of years.
Our workouts are for adult wrestlers. Mature high school wrestlers may attend with the organizer's prior approval.
Our club is chartered by USA Wrestling and all participants need to purchase a USA Wrestling competitors' card. This costs $50 and is good for one year. It provides liability and secondary accident insurance and is required for participation in many tournaments.
