12/2- WEEKLY UPDATE

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
 
Practice this week will be our normal schedule Monday/Wednesday/Thursday 615pm-745pm
 
This Sunday we are getting a private tour of the Dan Gable Musuem in Waterloo Iowa. We need to be there by 530pm. Please let us know if you are attending so I can give them an idea of numbers. DWC is covering the cost so it is FREE for everyone! The tour will be led by 10x NCAA champion coach Jim Miller (TJ Millers dad). We will also get an hour workout in.
 
Hempstead tournament is Sunday also, it is generally done by 2pm, so if you want to do both- you should be able to. Link to tournament flyer: https://www.thepredicament.com/wp-content/uploads/Dubuquehempstead2019.pdf
 
DWC Boutique night: December 12th. Classy and Chic Boutique is donating 10% of all their sales on December 12 to DWC. From 4pm-8pm they will have wine and sales available for all DWC moms/friends/relatives- drop your kids off and grab a glass of wine! (flyer emailed)
 
DWC Duals: If you want to wrestle on our dual team on January 5th (K-6th grade only for the dual team) please let us know what weight ASAP. 7th and 8th graders are invited to attend for exhibition matches as well. The cost is FREE for our full time club members.
 
Burger night: January 17th (flyer emailed). If you know of any company or person willing to donate a silent auction item please let us know ASAP. The coaches are going around to businesses in the area, but having a connection tends to go a long way!
 
USA state: We have a block of rooms booked at the Comfort Inn & Suites (710 America Drive SE CEdar Rapids IA 52404) Tell them you are with DWC. We will be renting out the banquet room to hang out and eat on Saturday night. The phone number there is 319-632-2000

11/25- WEEKLY UPDATE

It looks like we had about 40 kids compete this weekend between Bellevue and Anamosa! We also had a few kids attend a camp/college duals! It is awesome seeing kids get some quality mat time!

This week we will practice Monday (615-745pm) and our hard wrestling will be Tuesday (6pm-715pm). We will NOT have practice on Wednesday or Thursday this week due to Thanksgiving.

This Saturday we will be going to Union HS in Laporte City Iowa. Flyer is https://www.thepredicament.com/wp-content/uploads/LaPorteCity2019.pdf

Silent Auction: We are looking for baskets for our silent auction at our burger night- if you are able to get something, please let one of the coaches know. Tentative plan for the Burger night is Friday January 17th. As soon as it is 100% confirmed we will let everyone know

December 8th – Dan Gable Musuem tour. DWC is invited to the Gable HOF museum for a private tour and workout. We will meet at the facility at 530pm on Sunday December 8. DWC is covering the costs for all wrestlers who attend, I believe you will have time to go to a tournament before if you choose. This will be a really cool opportunity for our kids, please let us know if you plan on joining.

December 12th: My mother in law is hosting a DWC moms night at her boutique in dubuque (flyer emailed). There will be wine, and 10% of any sales from the day will be donated to DWC. Please feel free to share with any friends, family, neighbors, etc

January 5th duals: There is a sign up sheet for weight classes in the wrestling room (it was also emailed). If you want a spot on the dual team email or text us or sign up at practice by December 3rd.  If there are multiple wrestlers at a weight, we will have wrestle offs to determine the spot, as it is the only fair way to pick who is on the team. We will have reserves and an open mat for exhibitions all day as well.
