Wish I didn't have to re-type all of this but that bastards at The Mat deleted it and I need to get my contacts going asap.
Anyways, I'm putting together a wrestling pilgrimage of sorts for my team. We are going to travel from Eastern OR to the Dan Gable Museum and back in June, after we get out of school.
We are trying to bring a group of 10 of our more experienced kids and kids on the verge of getting good.
Two soon to be 7th graders, one is my son who is a jr high state qualifier and went 1-2 there. He is about 75lbs. The other kid is a friend of his who is getting pretty good and about 90lbs. He went 2-2 at our jr high state qualifier and is a tough kid.
3-4 others will be incoming freshman, 3 of which were all jr high state placers(2nd 105, 5th 136, 6th 122) and a small HWT(215) who was also a jr high state qualifier.
The remaining kids will be a few solid HS wrestlers in the 119-160lb range. A couple of which were HS state qualifiers.
We aren't entirely wolrd beaters, but we are decent and know how to wrestle.
We are looking to wrestle or workout with different teams from various areas and possibly sleep on your mats if at all possible. We'll wrestle any style and wrestle up weights if needed to get a good workout in. We'll also be bringing shirts to trade with kids if wanted.
Here is what our trip is looking like:
EO to Boise or Pocatello
Boise/Pocatello to Cheyenne, WY
Cheyenne to Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs to kansas city, KS/MO
Kansas City to Lincoln NE
Lincoln to Waterloo, IA
Then back home through Minny to Mt Rushmore, the Montana on home. Could change if needed.
I've been in touch with Eric Akin's club and will most likely be heading there and are hoping to visist the OTC, but in light of recent events, I don't know if we're going to want to go there. We are hoping to meet Henry Cejudo as majority of my team are Hispanic. If you have any contacts in those areas I mentioned or have a club/team of your own you'd like to wrestle us against, feel free to contact me asap at firstname.lastname@example.org
