Saturday, May 6th FVGC will be CLOSED for all regular classes. We will be going to the Wisconsin Dells to watch the Wisconsin Wrestling Federation Freestyle & Greco State tournament. We are going to show support for a number of FVGC family members that are competing, including the Engeldal, Williams, Wittmann, Hammen, and Mills kids.
Please RSVP to the FB event if you are wanting to travel with the team (i.e. carpool with other FVGCers). FVGC FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY! If you are going but will be traveling alone with your family, please just check “Interested” so we don’t reserve you a seat. If you are willing and able to drive/provide a vehicle, please let us know in the discussion and include how many seats you have available. We will be meeting and leaving from the gym (exact time TBD).
More information on the tournament is below.
It has been suggested to us that you bring cash for entry and parking as well as chairs/cushions to sit on as it will be a long day on bleachers and the floor. Wear your FVGC or Team Sarah gear!
