Hello Andover Wrestling Family!
I want to thank EVERYONE that was able to help at the Andover Tournaments this weekend. Thanks to everyone that signed up on signupgenius. Most of the spot were filled for the event. If you were unable to help this weekend, we will have something available for you at the next home matches.
We had 8 High School teams on Saturday and 420 Youth Wrestlers on Sunday. We raised a good amount of money for the wrestling club, but most importantly to me at our events is that we had many happy wrestlers and families. We received many compliments on how smoothly the events were run.
Thanks to all of the Andover coaches for coaching all the kids this weekend. Keep up the great work! Thanks to all the high school wrestlers, managers and coaches for helping throughout the weekend.
I would like to call out a few more people that went the extra mile. Owen Braaten helped codirect the tournament with me this year. Gina Houle and Scott Reynolds stepped up to lead the concession stand this year. Thanks to everyone that helped them in the concession stands all weekend. That seemed to be busy at all times. Thanks to Staci Winter who lead the Hospitality room and all the others that worked back there to help Staci. Thanks to Jason Strasser for announcing the High School Tournament. I want to thank John and Julie Peterson and Scott Olson the bracketing and running trackwresting for the high school event. This year everything went completely perfect. Also a big thank you to Elise Seburg for kicking off both events with singing our National Anthem.
Thanks to all the kids and parents that worked the tables and on the mats this weekend. Thanks to Kate Watson, Lori Wadel and Julie Beberg for running trackwrestling and getting all 420 wrestlers bracketed on time. There is so much work that goes into getting the kids entered and bracketed in the back room. I say “that is where the Magic happens.” We also had great help form Carrie Learn from MN/USA at our event this year. Thanks to Ken Olson and Jeff Board and the others that helped getting the kids to the mats. We setup a plan and try to improve it every year.
Thanks to Julie Beberg on both days leading the admission table. There is a lot of cash we take in over the weekend and a lot of worry goes into handling all that cash. Thanks everybody that work up at the admissions table.
I want to thank my wife Staci Winter for letting me have so much fun with our extended wrestling family. There were many late nights for me getting ready for the weekend. She also drove our daughter Addison to basketball on Saturday night and then again on Sunday for her team to win the championship game.
I truly love the excitement of the weekend. We are always looking to make the event better each year. Please let us know if you have any changes that could help for next year. I already have a few in my spreadsheet. We will log all comments and consider them next year. Please save the date December 12 & 13, 2020 for next year’s our tournament weekend.
Good luck with the rest of the season.
