Anyone else staying in the dorms? I am at the President's Park dorms. It is about a 1/2 mile walk to the fieldhouse. We can walk over as a group Monday/Tuesday morning. Unless everyone is too serious to potentially see an opponent prior to competition, lol. I was thinking about heading over at about 7:45a each morning. Gives about an hour to get a locker, get settled and warm up.
Welcome to the group James
Is there going to be any get together after the events so we can exchange info, hang out? Or are we just going to battle and walking away, lol? This will be a cool thing for me to be a part of, and i'd like to remember my Law enforcement brothers and firefighters from around the world who are competing. Thanks! Can't wait!
WRESTLERS, If you did not receive an email from me today, you did not provide a valid email address. Please send me you email information so I can keep you informed with the WRESTLING UPDATES. thank you

WHAT IF I DO NOT MAKE WEIGHT? In all weight-class sports, competitors will weigh-in before their events. At this time, competitors will be bracketed according to their actual weight at the Weigh-In. (In sports where the rules dictate, although in the final analysis this rule applies, a competitor must attempt to "make weight” during the Weigh-In process.)
When brackets are completed, competition will be held and medals awarded. In cases where there is only 1 competitor in a weight class, the...WHAT IF I DO NOT MAKE WEIGHT? In all weight-class sports, competitors will weigh-in before their events. At this time, competitors will be bracketed according to their actual weight at the Weigh-In. (In sports where the rules dictate, although in the final analysis this rule applies, a competitor must attempt to "make weight” during the Weigh-In process.)
When brackets are completed, competition will be held and medals awarded. In cases where there is only 1 competitor in a weight class, the competitor may remain in that weight-class and be guaranteed a Gold medal. Alternately, the competitor may elect to move into a heavier weight-class (never lighter than qualified for) that has 1 or more competitors and compete in that weight-class if the Sport Coordinator approves and can accommodate the change.
In Boxing, Wrestling and Submission Grappling, a competitor may move up only 1 weight class. Show more
does anyone know how to change the weight class that you registered for? or can it be done the day of weight ins
