A land before wrestling. . .

So my wife has applied for a job in a different community, one without wrestling--sad as it may be they do exist. Now it's not just a school district without wrestling, or a town without wrestling, but it's an entire county without wrestling--823 square miles with no wrestling. I can't live in a community without wrestling, and I don't think that anyone should have to live in such a place.

I'm going to bring wrestling with me, and I'm going to try to keep you all informed of my progress.

    1 year
    2 year
    3 year
    5 year
    10 year

    I've finished with years 1-3 (for now, I'm sure I'll change them again before posting them) but I want to get them all down and on paper to see how ...
  3. Info from coaches, coaches' wives, and community members.

    I've been able to talk to several people from the community that were involved with wrestling during the last go around and it's been fairly informative. I have not had a chance to speak with the last head coach (though I talked to his wife quite a bit) because he's working out of town right now, but I have spoken to the assistant coach, and his wife (a former teacher in the local high school) as well as the coach's wife I mentioned above.
