Reminder: Fundraiser T-Shirt Orders Due Monday 11/26!

This is a friendly reminder that if you wanted to order a fundraiser t-shirt and haven’t signed up with a wrestler or turned in an order yourself, they are due Monday, November 26th (today!). And remember, you don’t need to pay for them yet (unless you want to) as you can simply pay for your shirt(s) when they are delivered to you. If we can get them all by the end of the day, we hope to place the order shortly thereafter and have them delivered before students are let out for the holiday break.

Mitchell Breuer celebrates birthday with a state ranking!

Mitchell Breuer celebrated his 18th birthday today. But the senior wrestler got an early present. Late last week The Guillotine released its first rankings of the 2012-2013 season.

The November 16th rankings put Mitchell in the 4th spot at 152 pounds. See for yourself and check out other rankings at this link: http://theguillotine.com/wp/?p=9735

Tournament Correct: Chatfield JV on Jan. 19th

The Chatfield JV Tournament will be on Saturday, January 19th, and not the previous Saturday as indicated on prior schedules posted online and handed out. I regret the error. Please make that schedule change in the copy you have. The Google Calendar has been updated with the change, and the “Goodhue Wrestling Event Schedule” PDF has been updated in the Document Library page, so you can print an updated one as well. I also updated that PDF with some tournament start times, as tourney fliers from other coaches are starting to come in now that the season is here!

T-Shirt Fundraiser

The annual Goodhue Wrestling T-Shirt Fundraiser is now available. This year offers a solid purple shirt with a black and white color screen print and a wrestler logo beneath. These are $10 each, and the size range is Youth XS to 3XL. For any XXL or XXXL, please add $2 ($12 total for those shirt sizes).

All profits benefit the wrestling club. The due date is Monday, November 26th. Please submit to Coach Grant. Pay when it is delivered to you; checks can be made out to Land of Lakes Wrestling at that time.

And, of course, you can sign up for the shirts at the Elementary Registration event tonight (Wednesday) from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., or at the 7-12 Parent-Athlete-Coach Meeting Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.

Elementary Registration Night

This Wednesday – November 14th – will be the Goodhue Elementary Wrestling Program’s Registration Night. The school will be open and elementary leaders will be available from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Come in and get signed up, weighed in, and put a deposit down on a singlet. And if you have an apparel order, this is a great time to drop that off as the orders are due Friday!

The Goodhue Wrestlers in Grades in 7-12 are invited to the official pre-season meeting. It will be held in Coach Grant’s room at 3:30. Agenda items will include items in the handbook (motivation, rules, etc.), team goals, shoe needs, practice and event schedules, academics, and more.
