Fantastic day. Good chance to meet other wrestlers and get to network.
Me and Dare were on list to get pvt maroom at 3.10 pm but when the list was changed we were taken off the list so we didn't get a chance to grapple.
That was the only thing. Apart from that I loved it and I love the group events.
Thank you boys

Squashlad (237 platinum) 9 days ago

Possibly the busiest meet I've ever been to, which is fantastic—so many keen guys wanting to hit the mats and get into the ring. The only downside was that I missed out on wrestling far too many good guys, friends old and new! Many thanks to John for stepping in to manage it for us all: a job well done mate.
